Are We Ready for iPhone 3.0? Two More Days to Go

Extracted from my CNET Asia Blog.

Mark your calendar if you haven’t , two more days to go before the launch of iPhone 3.0 OS.  If you don’t own an iPhone, quit reading.  If you do, apart from just sitting here waiting, start wondering what the new OS would do good for you.

What’s good? well…. maybe

  • cut, copy and paste;
  • MMS (hmm… can your carrier handle that?);
  • tethering – act as modem to your Mac or PC so to be able to share internet connection (only if you’re that mobile);
  • find my phone (gee, this is a joke…. only if you’re subscribed to MobileMe);
  • HTTP-based streaming audio and video (isn’t your iPhone slow enough?);
  • full GPS (again, we hit the speed issue here); and
  • Bluetooth muti-player gaming capabilities (no comment on that one).

As for what’s bad….. my only concern is how the laggy would the iPhone 3G be with the new 3.0 OS.  Guess we will find out in two days.
