      i think i'm most excited about new hardware. many of these features that have been discovered or announced have already been developed and avaible for jailbroken iphones.

      True, but I think it's nice that Apple are taking the consumers views into consideration. With the new API's, there's also bound to be a massive surge of new, never seen before, Apps in the appstore. I also believe there's going to be some real expensive apps and the usual(quality) freebies. Personally, I'm looking forward to 3.0, I think it really will take that jump forward that the iPhone needs to compete with the current trend of Smartphones & PDA devices on the market today. Nokia's 5800 for example is a real nice first entry into touchscreen, plus they are constantly releasing new models with upgraded features and software. Some reviews say it's a close call between the 5800, iPhone & Blackberry's, my choice came about after 'i looked, i liked, i bought', i realized the lack of features after i'd parted with £342 gbp. Apple have to pull the rabbit now or the competition will stomp them (us) into obscurity.
      Most of the revealed features seem beneficial to the consumer needs and wants, but if you look deeper (i'm a cynic by nature, inquisitive too) you see that Apple are just trying to cover up some major gaffs.
      Spotlight: Oh, we'll give you a 'Search your device function'
      Copy & Paste: Available on some of the earliest Palm's & O2 XDA series & BASIC NOKIA'S!!!!
      Bluetooth: Wont even go there bar saying the most basic Sony Ericsson & nokia have this
      Turn by Turn Nav: Palm/Nokia/Sony E Turn by Turn available with Bluetooth GPS (TomTom do a PDA version and most top end Nokia's come with TT preinstalled or on SD!!

      3.0 MUST be seen as a major fix to a substandard O/S, i'm just hoping that they get it right this time....will there be a 3.1 release to fix the flaws that will bug the s*** out of us from 3.0?? Or will they just get it spot on
