With the 3G iPhone’s Release Only a Week Away, There are Many Questions

The 3G iPhone is announced monday morning, and some people are wondering what to expect. Of course, it will be better and faster, and hopefully be thinner, more like the iPod Touch. We have heard rumors of video chat on the iPhone, but that’s hard to believe. No one wants to look at the camera, then turn it around to see the other person, blah blah blah. We have also heard rumors that the camera is on the front, but thats hard to believe because you can’t look at someone while taking a picture. But, the camera will be a video camera, something the old iPhones don’t have. It will also come with a better version of iChat, although we’re not sure if it will come installed. Despite all this, MacRumors.com reports that the new iPhone will have:

a telephone application, a video conferencing application, an e-mail application, an instant messaging application, a blogging application, a photo management application, a digital camera application, a digital video camera application, a web browsing application, a digital music player application, and/or a digital video player application.

Yes, all this would be great, but someone would just wonder how they do this. Video conferencing on phones has been attempted by minority carriers like Voce here in the United States, but the networks couldn’t support it well. But some of these things we’ve already seen and just expect them to be better, but things like the photo management application and blogging application seem strange. It is hard already to type on the iPhone, so who would want to blog in it? Also, how many pictures are you actually going to have on it? It seems as if Apple wants to make the iPhone a mini MacBook, or another one of there computers. That would be great, but I don’t think they can do it on such a small screen.
