Will the real iPhone please stand up

Rumour has it that an iPhone will be released at Macworld Expo San Francisco in January 2007.

Other rumours about the pending release include 3 megapixel camera, 2.2 inch screen, and iTunes integration.

American Technology Research Analyst Shaw Wu says the phone has already gone from concept to prototype.

"Clearly, we would like to share more detail as we have conducted extensive work on the product pipeline, but for now, here is what we will convey," Wu wrote. "The design will be an iPod nano-like candy bar form factor and come in three colors (we are not certain of the exact colors but we suspect black, white and platinum, similar to Apple's current color scheme of iPods and Macs)."

I'm guessing that they've been holding off until now to get flash memory in the iPhone.
A hard drive would just be too bulky.

Take your pick from the following images that have been floating around.

If I was to choose one design over the others, it would be the last one. I can see that if iPod makes a competitive phone to Motorola's offerings, it would have to offer more than just the combination of an iPod and cell phone. It would have to offer something that would transcend the abilities of each product on its own.

Personally, I would be interested to see how the integration of games and downloadable content would work on a phone like that. I could even see the potential in streaming iTunes straight to your iPhone...

As wifi access and bandwidth speeds increase you'll see a lot more video on your phone/iPod/iPhone.
