    I'm still a bit surprised at all the people complaining about lack of video recording. Just what do you have to take video of all the time? And if you want to shoot video, why would you want to shoot video with a crappy camera?

    I don't even like the video quality at 640x480 that my 8MP Canon digi-cam takes at the highest settings, and it takes fine pictures. And I know that is better than cell phone cameras so I don't see the appeal. Do you record yourself just walking around? Do you record your friends just hanging out on the couch or out on the town? What is it? Are you sending sexy videos to your gf?

    Or is it that everyone wants to be a news reporter and send in those stupid videos of idiotic comments to CNN or catch the cops beating up some suspect?

    I wouldn't think there will be a big hardware update this year just to improve the camera. And the 3.0 OS clearly isn't setup for major changes in how it performs so I don't see them fragmenting the market yet. I'd bet the changes will be increase the storage and change the back to the matte finish.

    I'm with you. I also didn't see a dire need for cut n paste or MMS. Of course, look at how other things are popular that make no sense - Facebook, Twitter?!? As you said, MMS and Video Rec. would be for all those people that feel they need to snap inane pictures and videos and send them to all their friends. Sorry, I don't need to know you had a good ****, and I certainly don't need to see a picture of it.

    Hey my first post here! I owned the original iphone for about 3 months when it first came out. Many of the things that made me return back to my BB and skip on the 3g have been addressed with this software update to come. I will most likely be leaving Verizon this June/July and picking up hopefully the new iphone itself with the new software.

    I was about to sell my iPhone on ebay but now with all this great stuff I will keep it. I am excited about the push I hope it works as great as they say.

    Several of my jailbreak reasons would be taken care of with the update.

    I'm pretty ecstatic about 3.0. If they follow through with everything they say they will, the iPhone will become, essentially, the "perfect toy."

    I'm Happy, an update is an update at the end of the day.
    Better than no update :P

    Like the sound of Turn by Turn GPS, and C&P.

    Is it posible to make the camera better than 2.0 with just an update?

    Duvi, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but... If there were to be any video recording happening with the iPhone, it would MOST definitely have been announced. Sorry! 

    I dont know why some are complaining about the lack of video capabilities on the iPhone. Im sure most people have their phone jailbroken, so just download the video program afterwards, which works quite well IMO.

    The whole point is that people would rather play by the rules and be fully supported. Apple just makes that impossible.

    exactly, im sure this developers event was just the tip of the iceberg in what the new OS will be able to do. Maybe even a few things a new phone itself will be only able to utilize.

    Exactly... I honestly would shell up a little bit of $$$ to not have to use a jailbroken version of the app. You have to honestly think to yourself... Apple tests everything rigoriously, while Cydia and company just create and distribute. I'll take my chances with Apple, whether it messes up my iPhone at this point, I'm sure they'd replace it with no issues/questions asked.

    "Hey, I jailbroke my device and it doesn't work anymore. What are your replacement options?" I know I can format and all that good stuff, but I would really love to be able to have the issue on spot and go to Apple on spot. Not find the nearest PC/Mac with iTunes.

    The only thing really missing is a today lock screen.

    But in general, once they fix all the bugs it will be one hell of a mobile OS.
