according to vodafone nz web site july 11th is when the new iphone 3G will be available . so i wonder if vodafone has the jump on xt telecom or both networks release ipone at the same time?

I think it may be more likely they just haven't updated the 'alt' tag on that banner image since the launch last year on July 11?

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the iPhone 3G released here on 11th July 2008? My guess is that banner is a bit out of date, I personally don't believe it has anything to do with the still rumoured third generation iPhone, plus your topic heading is misleading because no where on that page does it say '3G+'.

its MY option to call it 3G+..dont think there is anything misleading about it as any 3g iphone that will come out will be "plus" nes pas?

as for july 2008..i dont see anthing saying that it is..do you ? or are you assuming?

i checked that banner 6 days ago..it did not show the pop up

also..why would vodafone display a date and advert almost a year old especially now with sch competition with xt?

perhaps you need to make  considerations before making dispersions about others post?

Your topic heading IS misleading - it's a statement. You are stating Vodafone is releasing the iPhone 3G+ on 11th July, when the plain simple fact is that no new iPhone has been announced, so you've made a very bold statement and all you have to back it up is from a page on Vodafone's site that hasn't changed in terms of format or content since it was set up last year!

Do a search and you'll see that the iPhone 3G was released here on 11th July 2008. You're the one making the statement so you should be the one proving that Vodafone is releasing a phone YOU are calling the iPhone 3G+, not telling other people to disprove you!!

Yeah this banner has been there since the last launch (2008) - it's nothing new and not referring to a new iPhone. Vodafone are notoriously shocking at keeping their website up to date remember!

As much as I'd like to think that the next gen iPhone will be launched on July 11 and that this banner is indicating so, I just don't think this is the case. They may very well launch the next gen around that date but this banner is still a carryover from last year. Wait for the Apple confirmation first is probably the safest bet.

Besides, July 11 2009 is a Saturday - they won't launch a new phone like this on a weekend :)

As much as I'd welcome the announcement. I think your unlikely to be right here because:

Your theory is based solely on one html 'Alt' tag on an image of a 3G iPhone stating 'coming 11 July'. Which has a big red banner referencing the 'iPhone 3G' which launched on 11 July 2008 here in New Zealand. Very co-incidental.

As a web guy, I know that a html 'Alt' tag is a very easy thing to forget to update - as it's not immediately obvious - someone has to hover their mouse over the image and keep it still for a couple of seconds before most browsers will show it. Especially in Vodafone's case, who aren't the best at updating their site.

History tells us that Apple keep tight control on release information, and it would be really strange for Vodafone NZ to be advertising an unannounced apple product, let alone in such an obscure way.

Hopefully cranz or someone will come along shortly and confirm it's just a leftover artifact from last year.

if you read carefully..what i STATED you will probably pull your benign horns in..i stated .."according to the vodafone website"..so if vodafone are posting out of date and untrue advertisments..what does that make of your argument?

prove me wrong based on facts no your opinion..but remember my source is the vodafone web site not plucked out of the air

not really..read the other links and if you perhaps do some simple web scanning you will notice most commentators point to july 17-18th

so no...not speculation based on ONE html web site...also refer to posts in this forum

man..so many people eager to jump to the negative and try to tifle interesting observations...why not investigate and prove me and vodafone website wrong?
