What Hardware Changes Will iPhone OS 3.0 Bring?

Gadget Lab on Wired.com round-up

On June 22 I will be Chairing the SYS-CON iPhone Developer Summit in NYC. Along with me will be some great industry presenters and colleagues from Sybase/iAnywhere showing off  the Enterprise capabilities they have for iPhone.

In preparation for this event I have been searching around for what the industry thinks Apple will announce, when the new OS and  hopefully hardware becomes available, and I found a great article by Brian Chen of the Gadget Lab in Wired.com.

Brian summarizes the rumors and puts a percentage probability next to each, that the feature will be announced with the next device. The article is called Rumor Round-Up: Everything We’ve Heard About the Next  iPhone and can be found here

I personally am hoping that the Processor, RAM & Storage get increased, along with an upgrade to the camera. These would be my must have, whilst my nice to have list would be the  magnetometer (digital compass), a user-facing camera (for possible future video-conferencing facilities such as iChat/Skype) and a sleeker aluminum design - akin to the new uni-body  MacBooks.

Something based on the beautiful titanium Apple iPhone concept designed by Jim Young here would suite me just right.
