If you need a corporate device why do you own an iPhone. It is multimedia, and consumer centric which seems very unbusiness like.
Now, can i please have turn by turn gps and landscape sms.

I must say that this is complete ******** of an update apple has been sitting on their *** this whole time and not delivering a good quality update since 2.0. It's a damn good thing that a jailbreak provides everything (just about) to what it missing from apple. Oh yeah how about the new way to copy and paste onthe iPhone. That is pretty darn sweet. Major props to the people at ispazio

We'll see....They have to I think. To put the type of growth numbers on the table for Wall Street that they need, they have to go after that market. iphone growth will slow down otherwise and investors wont like that. Where else will they get those growth numbers from...there is no other big market left. They went international with the phones already.
Big publicly traded companies are starting to switch to Apple, Genetech is one, and there are others. Give it two years. Three years ago if someone said Apple would have 10% computer market share and be a dominate player in the smart phone space, I'm not sure anyone would have believed it.
And sorry dieselboy....
I actually think in June when the new iphone comes out, they will address gps (which is corporate and one of the few things the storm and bold does better than the iphone).
I'd like SMS landscape too. Business users are consumers first, by the way. Why should I have two devices. I can have one for everything.
Lets hope we all get what we want.

I love my iPhone more than any other phone I've ever owned. But if apple doesn't get there act together and start adding features that I had on every other phone I've used, I'll go out and find one that does. Video recording, MMS, Copy & Paste, etc. Even if apple wanted to make these options available in the App Store, I wouldn't mind paying a little bit of money for them.
I know I can get 90% of these applications through jailbreaking, it's the point that basic features should automatically be included.
And whoever said it earlier, is exactly correct. Apple is only releasing this new firmware because 2.2 is now able to be unlocked.

restoring my iPhone then installing everything OTHER than Winterboard and getting extended battery life?
Then restoring my iPhone and installing everything including Winterboard then getting decreased battery life?
Try it and post back results, then tell me Winterboard doesn't drain your battery.The Original Autobot of MMiJesus couldn't turn into a fire engine

Oh, I think it will be a software update. I just think they will have a big release with the firmware 3.0. June is not that far away after all.
But I do think it will be aimed at the corporate user. Lets look at the facts.
(1) The biggest market that Apple has yet to conquer on both the phone and PC side is the business market. That is what they want and they should. Big Money!
(2) Snow Leopard the new Mac OS is focused on MS exchange intergration -- Ie business market.
(3) People fall in love with their iphone or ipod and then buy a Mac. That is how they get in to a business.
(4) This new firmware update has stuff in it for corporate email.
They are focusing their products on both the consumer and corporate market. What the realize is business users want one device.
So, the good news for you is turn by turn GPS Is a must for the business user.
At least this is my theory fwiw.

Ye thats a nice article.
Puts everything clearly, proves that Winterboard can be a battery drain. So many people rush to it's defense just because Saurik developed it.
Personally, i can take the battery drain for Intelliscreens benefits, i cant live without the calendar on my lockscreen now.
Its a shame Apple cant give us the same sort of options with an update.
They are only dipping their foot into the corporate market right now, they really need to take it seriously. The iPhone has so much potential! It's just missing vital points right now, and noone wants to carry their iPhone AND their blackberry. Come on Apple!
i think that after the iWork09 web integration update we might be lucky enough to see an IWork application integrate with the iPhone for business users?
The iPhones due an update around June-ish if they update at all. A new 3G with a better battery and 32GB storage would be perfect to be released along side 3.0 and PUSH notifications nd enough of an update to be called an updgrade.
Backgrounder kills the battery on the current 3G. I don't think the current battery could handle push well. Charge would last about 6 hours tops?!
As usual, my expectations are high for future firmwares, but im sure ill be left disappointed as usual

But he also pointed out that having to come up with another dazzling show every January—a huge production, starring knock-’em-dead new products every year—was unsustainable. He noted that Apple marches to certain annual product cycles: the holiday season (Novemberish), the educational buying season (late summer), the iPod product cycle (October), the iLife development cycle (usually March), the iPhone cycle (June). January doesn’t fit ANY of them.
For June, I think we will see a significant improvement to email, cut and paste, search for email, etc that the business user needs. They don't need to be on par with a blackberry, but the need to remove the reasons business users don't buy it now. And that is email. For the consumer, I would think they'd put in MMS, Video recording, and other missing features.
I also think with this update since we'll be able to select multiple emails and delete them, they will finally take the limit off of the number of emails you can have. I'm so hoping at least.
What I would give to see their product roadmap.

Good to know that there is something in the works but still doesnt excite me like it did when 2.0 came out.

(oh yeah, and get rid of AT&T: the worst thing to ever happen to the iphone)
sadly, i think that quote right there points to a totally new device before all these features. battery life is a base issue that has to be fixed and i know updates can help with this some but not enough. its going to take a better and more expensive batter (thus more expensive device) or time for these parts to become cheaper and a release of an updated device at about the same price.

Another update that completely ignores what people want???
Come on Pre! Maybe Apple will listen once the wallets start talking...
01-20-2009, 11:05 AM #97
what about a simple free app to forward txt
01-20-2009, 06:05 PM #98
The best update for my 3G will be when I replace it, probably with a Pre.
No cut/copy/paste, no multitasking, horribly weak phone app, artificial restrictions on developers preventing them from fixing the many ommissions and flaws. I've never had a program on any platform, mobile or not, crash as much as mobile Safari. The whole Internet? I think not.
I've never been a fan of the arrogant fruity company, but they continue to have the attitude that they know better than their users. They provide weak updates with what they want, rather than responding to very basic user needs and requests. Jobs and his gang truly believe they know better than you. They tell you what you need, not the other way around. Apple has always been that way, but have brought that arrogance to new lows with the iPhone.
I reluctantly gave them a shot with the 3G and they proved all of my previous feelings for them to be more than true.

I would be very surprised if the Pre changes this - if it does I will probably get one. But until something better comes along throwing your toys out of your pram doesn't really help.....He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
