In case you've been off-planet for awhile and haven't kept up with the news, speculation is rampant about when the next iPhone will appear or be announced, and what new features we can expect. Industry pundit John Gruber, for example, speculated in an article yesterday that the next-gen device would have more storage (like the 32 GB described here), more internal memory -- 256 MB, a 600 MHz processor to replace the existing 400 MHz model, a built-in electronic compass, an autofocus lens, and video capabilities.
The Austrian faux pas appears to be proof that at least one of the features, more storage, is going to appear on whatever new iPhone may be coming our way soon. Speaking of that new iPhone, take our poll (below) and let us know when you think it will be shipping.
