Will the next iPhone be thinner, cheaper, perhaps cooler? Will it come with new features such as video chat and a global positioning system? For months, speculation has swirled.
Today, Steve Jobs, Apple Inc.'s chief executive, is expected to end the guessing game and unveil the second version of the iPhone at Apple's developer conference in San Francisco.
This is not just any updated product. Some analysts say the future of the company depends on the iPhone becoming a consumer hit of global proportions.
