Apple announces that iPhone to become what it should have been in the first place

Posted by Fred on March 7, 2008

About a year after it’s initial release, the iPhone will finally have a fairly complete feature set.  Apple calls the software version 2.0, but given that the primary features are push email support via ActiveSync and a development environment for third-party software, wouldn’t it be more accurate to call it 1.0?  This makes the iPhone fairly complete, but there’s still (of course) no 3G data, no GPS, no support for software not approved by Cupertino and distributed via the iTMS, no access for developers to all of the iPhone hardware.  Maybe iPhone 3.0 – until then, it’s still an overpriced but pretty semi-useful pile of plastic, glass and chrome.

  1. I don’t think that a software update would be able to add 3G support. As for GPS, the iPhone has a feature that shows you where you are on google maps. Not real GPS, but most cellphones do it this way as well.
