    Does anyone think that apple will in the near future change its form factor? It has pretty much stayed the same since it first came out. I would love for them to put out a iphone with a qwerty keyboard, and of course a flash for the camera.

    I think he means a physical keyboard. I don't think apple will ever go that way. Firstly the iPhone is made to be a fullscreen phone, all the apps are designed to run full screen, and the OS is functional as a touchscreen. By putting a physical keyboard on the iPhone the whole OS would need to be redone (we all remember what happened when RIM tried to implement the keyboard OS to a touchscreen OS on the storm1).

    With OS 4.0 you can use a credit card sized bluetooth keyboard (about the size of the BB keyboard).

    But the on-screen keyboard works for 95% of what you need to do outside of long emails.

    Camera flash is meh, it might be on the new hardware this summer, but I dont see the big fuss. It basically works from 2 feet away or else its useless since its so low powered. Its still near useless in dark conditions without being close to the subject, and still the photo is poor at best. This isnt a pro digital camera where you can adjust the aperture with a big bright xenon flash where night photos come out clear.
