iPhone OS 2.2.1 Hints at Next Gen iPhone?

MacRumors is reporting that both the recent iPhone OS 2.2.1 release, and ad serving reports from Pinch Media show an iPhone model 2,1. The original iPhone was 1,1, the iPhone 3G was 1,2, so if accurate this numbering would not indicate the small bump of the iPhone 3G, but a real next generation device update (similar to the recent, revised iPod touch, which earned it's own 2,1 model last fall).

So, TiPb's just gonna keep on saying it: we want us some iPhone HD this June! With faster 802.11n mobile WiFi chips, quad-core cpu's for iPhone 3.0 that support OpenCL and a PowerVR graphics core to the extreme.

Anyone else starting to get impatient for WWDC 2009?
