iPhone 3G,4G,5G etc etc….

So when Apple released the iPhone 3G i knew that it would throw off a lot of people and the idea of naming conventions. Now being the resident nerd of all my friends, family and co-workers. I am being bombarded with the question of “When is the iPhone 4Gs coming out?” or “When is iPhone 3Gs2 coming out?” What do you guys think about this odd “issue” that Mr. Jobs has created. What people do not understand is that the iPhone 3G means the 3G data service, not the 3rd generation of iPhones (wasnt there only 2 gens anyway??) So with that being said, people are calling it the 4G because….4G is after…..3G, in a weird twisted way of thinking. Maybe its just me, but it can become quite irritating having to explain this to everyone that asks me. If iPhone does come on Verizon, the it technically CAN be called the iPhone 4G and remain relevant. Being that Verizon would have unleashed it under the LTE data service. Dilemma…dilemma. So just to be clear….

-4G/LTE : Fourth Generation Data service for cellular devices
-iPhone 4G = Non-existent, unconventional naming
-3G = Third Generation Data service for cellular devices (This has nothing to do with Apples branding,  just trying to distinguish the old and new)
