iPhone 3.0 preview thoughts

Some notes from today’s Apple iPhone OS 3.0 Preview (Quotes from: MacRumors)

Apple keeps 30% comission, so it makes sense that they want to encourage developers to sell even more. As long as it’s not music.

I’m concerned for Nintendo DS. May the PSP rest in peace.

Huge market opportunites and very cool. Just the idea of a compact external keyboard makes me reach for my wallet.

Better late than never. Useful for some apps. But they need to release iChat pronto. Messaging creates important network effects.

Nice. Don’t have a car, but I can see how GPS sales will be affected.

Welcome to 1993.

Yawn. 3rd party apps already dealt with these.

Very welcomed. But I’m sure we still haven’t seen the full scope of the springboard updateds.

Not that relevant yet. But wireless headphones could be the future.

All in all, nothing groundbreaking. But this was a developer event and the announcements are very important for the. But still, I think a lot of people are sleeping a little bit better at Palm.
