Does anybody know when the new iPhone will be released? And when it will be launched in the UK? I have read some articles that are tending to the end of June. They also say that a family will be released. Does anybody have any information?

TUAW and Engadget haven't even posted these. I'm betting they're fakes (as they usually are), but if not, I'll be happy to upgrade my EDGE iPhone for one of these in June. If not, I'll just keep it until it dies.

Call me crazy, but I'm thinking of getting an iPhone myself (combined with the usual, compulsory T-Mobile Plan) upon my return to Germany. As I'm unfamiliar with all the other phone companies that exist nowadays, I'm going for T-Mobile in any case.
My current phone, a Sony Ericsson W810i, is going to be given away, because I intend to make the switch to UMTS.

I have one now. The big thing is that the current one is really slow. What they really need is an upgrade to the processor so that it actually does what you want it to do when you want it to. The other thing it needs is more memory.
These shortcomings, for now, are not sufficient for me to want to replace it. Mine's not even a year old. Until a system faster than 3G becomes widely available, there isn't really much that it needs other than purely software upgrades to allow for, say, MMS photo messaging.

Another possibility: Do you have the original OS X firmware from Apple installed or is your iPhone "jailbroken"? Some of the "improvements" done by the jailbreakers are reported to have rather adverse effects on performance and run time.

Quoting DocLightning (Reply 11): Having to wait 5 seconds before you can, say, type a text message is annoying.
Quoting Cpd (Reply 15): Mine is a iPhone 3G 16GB - it has no delays. Maybe your one just needs the OS / content reinstalled from scratch. What you've described is quite odd.
Quoting Klaus (Reply 12):
The iPod Touch does of course have no SMS, but invoking one of the other apps in order to enter text (Mail etc.) is near-instantaneous.
I would have to agree with Klaus and Cpd, on my iPhone typing a text is instantaneous; it's exactly the same with Mail and any other app that requires the keypad. I'd say your phone needs some treatment, Doc.
Edited because I can't type...

Quoting 2H4 (Reply 20): Apple products have not been good to me...
Tell me about it. My MBP just crapped out. First the hdd went, fine ok. Replace that. Then the replacement goes, as soon as I get it. Ok, replace it. Then the left fan goes, now the right, and im pretty sure the display is going tits up too. So I said screw it and bought a pretty nice "preowned" mbp on ebay for $700.
