We can’t say we’re surprised to hear that Kevin Rose, the master of Apple rumors himself, has been flapping his gums about iPhone OS 3.0, due to be unveiled at a press event this Tuesday.
Kevin has chosen to tell a large crowd at SXSW, a very good location to reveal the secrets of 3.0 because of the large congregation of tech geeks (we can say that, since we are tech geeks ourselves) that have flocked to Austin, TX.
So what’s the big secret? He basically confirms all of our hopes and dreams will come true, as copy and paste will finally be a reality on the iPhone. He says the interface is similar to the magnifying glass — use two fingers to select your text and copy away!
That’s not all. Rose also mentioned that these additions will bring the iPhone up to speed with the Palm Pre, though there will be no support for background apps. So what else will there be? We’ve already heard rather good rumors that 3.0 will also have MMS and tethering capabilities.
There’s the news. But let’s hear from you: what else will be added in 3.0? We saw a huge change from OS 1.x to 2.x, so we’re really looking forwarding to seeing another large jump in usability and capability.
Again, file all this in the rumors section until Tuesday. But we cannot WAIT for this to all go down.
