iPhone 3.0 Thoughts 

If you haven’t heard yet, the iPhone 3.0 software will be previewed next Tuesday, March 18th. There are so many features that the customers of the iPhone have been wanting for so long and iPhone 3.0 looks like a great chance for all of these things to be included in the iPhone.

The first feature that everybody wants desperately is copy and paste. For months now many consumers in the tech industry have been criticizing the iPhone for not having copy and paste when many other phones already have it. All smart phones should have copy and paste including the iPhone.

Another big feature that could come in the 3.0 upgrade is the “push notifications” feature that Apple promised us back in September. Since Apple wanted to “get it right the first time”, they have been putting the push notifications off for a while. I for one am very excited about the feature coming to the iPhone because this would work great for applications like, Twitter or AIM on your iPhone. Hopefully this will get added as soon as possible because it is over due.

MMS. Come on Apple! This should have been in the iPhone OS long ago and everybody knows it. It is very sad that the iPhone hasn’t had this put in yet. Even the most basic Verizon and AT&T phones have this, and have had this for years now. This should definitely be put into the 3.0 update and should have been in long ago.

The last feature that could be added to the 3.0 firmware is tethering. This would be very nice to have on the iPhone. Personally I don’t think the iPhone will get this right now, at least not for the 3.0 upgrade. There haven’t been many rumors about it and I really don’t see Apple doing this just yet.

I am very optimistic about the new 3.0 update to the iPhone. I think they could put in so many valuable features and improve the stability all around. I would love to hear what all of you think, so please leave a comment.
