    Exactly what I was thinking.

    I can see me using copy and paste more and more though.

    Have to get the 3Gs for that feature for some reason. Even though the 3G and even the original iPhone could do it.

    The hype isn't as much in OS 3.0, but more what apps will be able to do with the new SDK.

    Cause it gives Apple a reason to get another $200 from you. Like the iPods, they just tweaked the interface on the new ones but left the old ones the same. Despite being the same internals.

    So far the only features I've used the most (I've been running 3.0 for a week) is the cut & paste and opening web links as new pages. I'd probably use MMS but AT&T is fucking clown shoes about it.

    MMS is ftw.

    but then if OS3 isn't a big deal, 3GS is even less of a big deal.

    I Was expecting more from apple with the release of 3GS :hs:

    and we cannot forget about tethering, another wonderful service added by apple that the fucks at at&t thought it would be a great idea to simply not offer.

    Does anyone know if you will be able to MMS on the edge network? or do you have to be 3g?

    It isn't a huge deal yet, but once devs start making more apps taking advantage of 3.0 I think we'll see some cool things.

    Although I've noticed that since upgrading to 3.0, my WiFi on my iTouch 2G would drop for a second or two and then reconnect randomly :S

    they should have included video in this update. And held off on the new iphone till they made it better.

    1mp increase in camera is BS.

    Luckily over here we can use MMS/tethering and it works really well. I can't believe US companys hold back on it.

    I've been noticing a trend in Apple lately. Hold off on what are, honestly, standard features on every other device. Then introducing new products, yearly, that are simply micro-bumps in specs.

    Before i switched to apple iphone i had a 5mp camera in my nokia :o

    so for them to bring out a new phone with a 3mp one is pretty poor IMO.

    MP count is pointless on camera phones. All that matters is the quality of the optics. If the new autofocus lens is significantly better than the POS on the 3G, they can keep the same pixel count for all I care.

    What the fuck were you all expecting? We've known what new features were coming out for 3.0 OS and iPhone 3GS for quite some time now.

    Two of the new software's biggest features aren't even usable because AT&T is a fuck up.
