My list of iPhone grievances 3.0

Apple made some nice headway with its preview of iPhone 3.0, but it's certainly not going to be everything to all people -- nothing ever is.

Apple made some nice headway with its preview of iPhone 3.0, but it's certainly not going to be everything to all people -- nothing ever is.

Let's review how iPhone 3.0 (at least what we know about it now) stacks up against my list of iPhone grievances v.2.0:

  1. Copy and paste √ iPhone 3.0 feature
  2. MMS √ iPhone 3.0 feature
  3. Push notifications √ iPhone 3.0 feature
  4. Camera improvements: video recording, image stabilization -- No
  5. Voice dialing (have to use Vlingo) -- No
  6. Turn-by-turn GPS navigation √ iPhone 3.0 feature
  7. Keychain support -- Partial Credit. iPhone 3.0 allows saving logins in Safari
  8. Multitasking -- No
  9. Landscape keyboard √ iPhone 3.0 feature
  10. Tethering over Bluetooth -- No
  11. A2DP √ iPhone 3.0 feature
  12. Flash playback -- No

By my count Apple scored 7 out of 12 (or 58%) if we count Keychain (#7 above) -- which is debatable.

So that makes my new iPhone Grievance 3.0 list, as follows.

  1. Wireless Sync -- Sync over Wi-Fi, 3G, presence-based sync
  2. Bluetooth keyboard/mouse support -- could make it a netbook killer?
  3. Camera software improvements -- video recording, software image stabilization, zoom, auto-focus
  4. Voice dialing over Bluetooth -- still have to use Vlingo
  5. Multitasking -- or at least more background apps
  6. Tethering over Bluetooth -- only a matter of time, AT&T holding this up?
  7. Flash playback -- will we ever see it?

What about you?
