3G iPhone Coming Next Year

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson reportedly told the press at a meeting of the Churchill Club in California that customers could expect a 3G version of the iPhone next year. However, Stephenson did not say exactly when to expect the device or how much it might be. But he did say that Apple CEO Steve Jobs, “will dictate” the price of the upgraded iPhone.

Although it seemed a forgone conclusion that there would be a 3G-compatible version, Apple could be concerned about analysts’ predictions that current sales of the iPhone will drop with news of a 3G version on the horizon.

Earlier this year, Jobs admitted that the current iPhone’s battery life would suffer dramatically if the handset supported 3G connectivity. And without offering any specific timeline, Jobs said that he hoped to have the battery issue worked out for a 3G version next year.

Orange Expects to Sell 100,000 iPhones

While the French wait for the iPhone’s arrival tomorrow, Orange’s CEO Didier Lombard said in a radio interview that he expects the company to sell nearly 100,000 Apple iPhones by the end of the year.

Lombard also has said that Orange will offer an unlocked version of the handset for less than Deutsche Telekom’s T-Mobile has proposed. After legal pressure from Vodafone, T-Mobile last week offered to sell unlocked iPhones for 999 euros ($1,485) in Germany.

While Orange has not announced exact pricing for an unlocked version, the company has announced that the starting price for the handset will be 399 euros ($593), with a 24-month contract starting at 49 euros ($73) a month.
