Apple set to unveil iPhone OS 3.0 next week

By on March 12, 2009, 1:52 PM
Apple has sent out invitations today to a press event where it will provide a sneak peek at the iPhone 3.0 operating system. Few details are available at the moment but, of course, speculation on what the update might include is already off and running. There are plenty of features iPhone users have been clamoring for since its release, such as Bluetooth stereo audio as well as native support for MMS and copy/paste functionality. Apple could also introduce tethering via Bluetooth and USB.

Perhaps the most significant enhancements the company could make to the device would be multi-tasking or the ability to run self contained web applications the timing would be just about right to slow down all the hype behind the Palm Pre. Whatever it is that Apple plans to unveil we will know for sure on March 17. In the meantime, what are you hoping to see in iPhone OS 3.0? Let us know in the comments.

Hope you'll be able to watch Flash videos finally..... also hope we don't get screwed and have to pay an 'upgrade fee'.

What i would like to see in an iPhone.. Hmmm..Windows Mobile 6.5+Oh snap? Wait, that means i wouldn't want to have an iPhone in the first place because like most business specialists, i find the iPhone more of a stupid kids toy then a functioning device... That and, has anyone even tried using Itunes lately? My god... there's a clunky dysfunctional program if ever. I don't even like Windows much... but Apple certainly isn't any better.

Hmmm..Windows Mobile 6.5+[/quote]Windows Mobile certainly has some features the iPhone lacks, but very few models have the hardware features the iPhone has (wifi + graphics acceleration + accelerometer + 128MB RAM + 3.5" LCD + a decent batter + a small package... etc..). Sure, its missing copy & paste and tethering, but you can do some great stuff with it like terminal commands via the BSD subsystem (awesome for network troubleshooting) and things that Windows mobile does... only VNC, SSH and such. For this reason, it's a *great* business tool if you're in the business of computer/network service -- Not to mention the interface and how things 'work' is just better than Windows Mobile.Either way, the vast majority of iPhone sales have been to consumers... not business clients... And maybe that's where Apple likes it. So all in all, your personal disposition means little to Apple or the iPhone anyway.
