My impressions about Iphone 3.0

It was about two hours of geekfest over the interwebs. Apple has finally put the iphone on part with normal phones in stuff like mms, bluetooth, copy+paste, etc.

What to say? Well, they did not underwhelm, for once. I am moderately pleased with what i saw, but will still need jailbreak to make the iphone reach its full potential.

Positive stuff: MMS, a2dp, copy+paste, landscape keyboard for all apps, Spotlight, peripherals support via bt and dock, new APIs for devs, notes sync, push notifications

Negative: no background processes (even if limited), no to-do app, no today-screen on LockScreen, no new system to handle notifications (similar to android or palm pre), no themes support, no video recording

Mind you, almost all the negatives can be surpassed with jailbreaking. That´s why i will still do it.
