This label is only used by Apple to show the difference between the iPhone models. It is almost like the model number but easier to tell what the product is.
There is speculation that quad-core processors could be used in the future iPhone's. This would help speed up the iPhone and make your gaming experience seem much more realistic. There is also a rumor that a new graphics chip will be used in the future iPhone and iPod Touch. The PowerVR SGX543 is a new graphics chip that is being released by Imagination Technologies. One of their graphics chips is being used in the current iPhone and iPod Touch. It would allow an unlimited number of cores and be much faster.

I am expecting to this new model to be released between June and August of this year. That would make since because Apple released the iPhone Edge in June of 2007 and the iPhone 3G in July of this past year. I also expect to see an iPhone 3.0 firmware update around the same time. It could include new features like tethering along with the copy and paste feature found on many other smart phones.
