    Finally..we will be able to cut and paste

    The functionality being added in the iPhone 3 software looks pretty good.

    - Push Notification: Rather than using background processes that hamper battery life, utilize third-party server to push badge, text, and audio alerts from applications.
    - Turn by Turn: Apple will allow developers to use CoreLocation for turn-by-turn GPS directions.
    - Cut, Copy and Paste: Available across all apps. Shake to undo or redo.
    - Landscape keyboard: Available in all key applications, including Mail.
    - MMS: Picture messaging now available.
    - Voice Memos: Record notes, lectures, interviews, etc.
    - Spotlight Search: Available across all applications. Systemwide search available from main home screen by flicking to the left.
    - A2DP Bluetooth: Support for stereo bluetooth headsets.

    Contracts for first gen iPhones start expiring this June. iApple will be introducing a reason (e.g. whole new iPhone!) for those folks to throw money at iApple, again. The new iPhone supposedly has nifty new, easy to use, cut 'n' paste functions.

    "Contracts ... start expiring...." Perhaps that affects the timing of the new firmware, but I believe most of the new features will work on the older phones.

    They pretty much put everything I wanted in that new software, and it's a free upgrade (for 3G users) too. Very good news!

    There are only two hardware related upgrades that won't work with the first version iPhone: stereo bluetooth, multimedia messaging.....

    However I am sure Apple will have something compelling in the next generation of hardware that will make users of both the first and second version iPhones to want to upgrade their hardware and extend their contract. It is rumored that the newest hardware will be much more powerful with multi cores, they could change around the camera and add video...so many possibilities.

    I never bought into the first gen iPhone but now own the 3G second gen. The landscape mode is awesome! One of the best uses for it is our own GetDpi forum. In portrait you can barely read the text. But in landscape it is very very good.

    I don't know what is coming in gen 3 but I am hooked!

    Hi Woody:

    We are talking about the current phone, and the fact you cannot get a landscape *keyboard* when in key apps like email or texting... They are fixing this with the new software.
