It seems strange to view a presentation suggesting cut and paste or MMS (multimedia messaging) will only appear after two years and in the third iteration of a smartphone's operating system. But it shows that whilst the speed that Apple might work at with regards iPhone development might be questioned, the meticulousness of their approach cannot. Apple isn't a company that tends to rush with the development of new features as much as others might. Instead, each version of a piece of software sees refinement and increased functionality that we all want...and that sometimes we've waited for.
The iPhone 3.0 operating system beta is no exception. There are aspects to the new software that have been announced that we feel like we've been waiting for forever. But at the same time, there are aspects to it that only Apple could do....and that if you're one of those fortunate to own an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can't wait to see the new OS arrive in the coming months.
