WWDC 2008

Everybody else is full of frenzied anticipation of the new iPhones to be announced at WWDC 2008. Here is my guess - or wish list:
  • 3G iPhone with GPS - No surprises here. I think this will replace the current model. 32Gb top-end model.
  • iPhone mini or nano - Smaller form factor with no camera or GPS, for those who just want a phone+iPod. This starts to provide a choice of iPhone form factor, just like the iPod.
  • iPod Touch with microphone - Will this model have GPS too? 48 or 64Gb.
It would be nice to see the classic iPods revved to support OSX but I think this may be a bridge too far.
