Whats in a name? Iphone 4 what does that really mean?

A lot of people have become confused about what iPhone 4 really means. Popularly known as the “4G” the truth has become more and more obscured to the everyday user. It has been called “4G” by the more apple following users because it is the 4th generation of iPhone and as just like with the iPods most are listed by generation so many users continue in that fashion with the iPhone also.

I believe the confusion started because it went from the iPhone original straight to the iPhone 3G. The second iPhone was called the 3G because it housed the first 3G hardware in an iPhone. Which got people into that nasty habit of thinking the number behind the word iPhone meant the type of network it is using.
1.original iPhone or iPhone 1st gen, 2g iPhone
2. iPhone 3G
3. iPhone 3Gs (people thought this meant it was faster than the 3G network was with the previous model.)
4. iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 in all truth still runs on the 3G network. The funny thing is its not even compatible with the 4G network.(no matter the software version its just NOT meant to be. Sorry!) As many of you already know that the iPhone 5 is due for launch this summer. Hopefully it will get a better name than iPhone 5, but this will be compatible with the 4G network that is supposed to be released later this year by AT&T and the existing Verizon 4G coverage.
