iPhone 3.0 Wishlist

Tomorrow Apple will give a sneak peak at the 3.0 version of the iPhone firmware. No clue so far as to if this will be on a new hardware platform (ie: version 3 of the iPhone handset) or just an upgrade to the current version. Hopefully some of each (ie: I don't want to buy a new $500 phone to get access to whatever new features there are).

A lot (lot) of "3.0 firmware wishlists" have appeared, mostly fueled simply by wishes, practically none with any actual inside information on them (some might argue that there are leaks who do go to people like Kevin Rose with details, but again, who knows. Anyway, one of the good lists I found was from Frasier Speirs, who has his own iPhone OS 3.0 Wishlist.

My list is pretty simple:

  • Cut & Paste
  • Background tasks/notification/whatever... anything to let me have an IM/Twitter running at the same time as I'm surfing or whatever
  • Some sexyness in the UI, nothing too chromey, but with some sort of update to make things look a bit more modern. Maybe a skinnable system?
