  • iPhone Patent Lays Out Possible New Features
    Aidan Malley at AppleInsider dug up and dug through a recent Apple iPhone patent that describes many possible future features for the iPhone. Including many that we are already expecting in the 3g iPhone expected to be announced by Mr. Jobs on June 9th.



    If you want to know what else is in store for the future of the iPhone take a flip through the 371 page patent here. You will recognize every feature of the iPhone you currently know and love, but with enough digging you'll stumble upon some interesting ones.

    Lucky for us Aidan already did! Of course Apple has no obligation to include all these neat new features, but if they want to nothing is going to stop them. We hope to see many of these in 3g iPhone release.

    Possible features that would probably implemented on the original iPhone via a firmware update (if implemented at all of course):
    • Instant Messaging
    • Flash and Quicktime in Safari
    • A blogging client
    • Java software downloads
    • MMS messaging
    • Voice activated commands
    • Voice Recording
    Hardware changes expected for the 3g iPhone:
    • GPS module with geo-tagging
    • Optical sensor for videoconferencing

      You would think that Adobe would say something about their engineers working on flash for a new platform. Unless everyone working on applications/frameworks for the new firmware aren't aloud to post progress or involvement.

      Lets hope for the best though, flash would be excellent on 3g.

      yeah, i just sold my iPhone on eBay for $455 for an 8G. I hope it actually releases on the 9th! Or else i'll be out of having a phone for a bit.
      And it really does look like they will be announcing it to the world and not releasing the iPhone 3G on June 9th. barely anyone in the world except us knows about a 2nd iPhone. I'm sure they'll be doing a ton of advertising before releasing it. Thats just how my mind works.

      I just jailbroke a Touch today, if it just gets stuck at the little white cursor, reset the ipod and let it try to jailbreak itself again. Should work fine, don't cancel the program on your pc though just leave that alone.

      Make sure your using ZiPhone 3.0 btw.

      Guys.

      1- This isn't a jailbreaking thread
      2- Don't use ZiPhone. It's crap and will mess up your phone in the long run.
