A Chinese forum poster has laid out (hilarious Google-English translation) the next generation iPhone almost exactly as described in recent rumors. Faster processor, 32GB Flash storage, 3 Megapixel camera with focus, digital compass and FM radio all make the cut.  He (she?) even gets extra credit for reciting the 9.7 inch tablet rumor as well.

The image which is shown shows "AT&T3.5" (without the space between the "T" and the "3") all the way over in China – rather than local Unicom or China Mobile.  The 3.0 iPhone software shows "AT&T 3.5"

Also, we’re not sure Apple are the FM radio types, even though we’ve seen that present and future iPhone chips do have the capability to do FM radio.

We like to think there are going to be some surprises both in design (thinner?) and functionality (front facing camera?).  If not, it will be hard to upsell current iPhone 3G users with a slightly better camera and compass.
