3G iPhone

New Features:



* iPhone2 software

* MobileMe synchronization (an updated dotMac)

* iPhone/iPod applications & app store coming soon

Still Missing:

* Video recording

* only 2MP camera resolution still, & no flash lighting

* No secondary camera for video conferencing

* No handwriting recognition

* No Java

* No Flash

The iPhone has the best mobile web experience available, but the holes in its feature set still hamper it. It's biggest benefit is the intuitive User Interface - this is the major downfall of Symbian S60 & UIQ mobile OSes.
