UPDATE: Apple Insider points out this could also refer to an AT&T network upgrade to 3.5G HSPDA+ type cell speeds. Or maybe both?

New iPhone hardware rumors are coming our way fast and furiously now, what with new device numbers, OLED screens, and... faster Internet speeds?

That's what Silicone Alley Insider is saying:

our source has heard rumors that the next iPhone will have a significantly faster Internet connection.

What does that mean exactly? Our bet is on those new 802.11n mobile chipsets we heard about a while back. Pretty much everything else in Apple's arsenal is now 802.11n fast, and even given those fancy new Airport Extreme and Time Capsules, faster would be better...

So again, how's that picture of the next generation iPhone shaping up for you?
