Apple to Preview iPhone 3.0 Software



apple iphone 3.0 softwareAs if the Apple rumors about touch tablets, Netbooks, etc… weren’t rampant enough, now comes this. Apple is apparently notifiying folks that on March 17 they will preview the iPhone 3.0 software. That doesn’t mean it will be out then, and specualtion is running towards this summer.

Several things are in play here.

First new software for the iPhone will make a lot (and there are a lot) of iPhone users happy, and probably points to what will be a new iPhone this summer. Of course the happiness meter will probably depend on whether things like BlueTooth, Cut&Paste, background processing, push, etc… are included. (Those who jumped on the 1st gen bandwagon will see their AT&T contracts expire this summer.)

Second, speculation is hot that this new software will probably also run on the Netbook, Tablet, whatever that Apple may or may not be planning.Who knows, but I’m sure we’ll find out something on March 17.

Third, Palm is getting ready to release it’s hope-for-a-miracle Palm Pre touch phone and if you thought Apple was going to sit back and let them grab the spotlight, you’re not paying attention.

    I’m amazed how people still praise this phone. Yes you can download tons of games and crazy apps, but these are all made by people out side Apple.
    This time Apple has to make a serious update. Actually there hasn’t been anything done anything from apple’s side to make this phone work for business people.
    The feedback site for the iphone is the biggest black hole on planet earth, and a lot of people are going back to there blackberry for simple reasons.
    video recording
    mms and the list goes on and on.
    Websites like: please fix my iphone , is popping up because Apple’s disrespect for there consumers grows bigger and bigger.
    Apple this is your chance. Do it right this time

    I knew that Palm investor who claimed people flock to the hot, new device was shooting himself in the foot. I was anticipating a minor hardware upgrade this summer, like an SSD bump, but the release of the new software with new SDK ups the ante considerably. And considering Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is also expected this summer, I’d say the chance of this being a major upgrade is quite high. They stumbled a bit with moving development teams between Mac and iPhone, but I suspect they have a more parallel and complementary system worked out now. It will be interesting to see how it all unfolds.

    Can you say “cut and paste?” Can you say”flash?” Can you say “video?”
