We’re happy to report that you can receive and play videos over MMS just fine

Sure to be a hit with the MMS lovers, though also likely to once again inflame the "no-video-recording-on-iPhone" frustraterati!

[Thanks to Gabriel for the tip!]

UPDATED: iPhone 3.0 Beta 2 Now Available for Developers

UPDATED: According to the screenshot we just received, looks like Apple has, for the first time, re-jiggered the order of Apps on the Home Screen (previously they just added iTunes and then App Store). Now Voice Memo takes Clocks spot, Notes switches with Calculator, Clock goes where Notes was, and Calculator bumps Settings to the bottom row along with iTunes and App Store, which move left a slot to make room. Not sure about this new arrangement, what do you think?

Also, there's apparently a new Settings panel for Store, although it sounds like it's blank right now.

Yet Another Next Gen iPhone Concept -- The Super-Thin!

Gizmodo has been on a next-gen iPhone concept craze as of late, and now they may have just gone too far... er, too thin! A more modest redesign, this one just sharpens the edges off the current model and adds a touch of inset ear-speaker flourish.

It doesn't thrill my design-sense personally, but what do you think? Should Apple continue minor evolutions given how popular the iconic iPhone remains, or do they need to shake us up with something revolutionary again, already?

iPhone 3.0: Mobile Safari Gets Enhanced Security Certificate Visualization

Looks like another desktop Safari 4 Beta feature has found its way into the iPhone 3.0 version of the browser. Now, when you go to a site with an enhanced security certificate, the text on top of the browser turns green (like the green bar, we get it!), with little green lock icon beside it, and the name of the certificate's trusted organization. For example, the above screenshots show how Apple's order status page looks on iPhone 2.2.1 (top right) and iPhone 3.0.

Want a Gmail App on the iPhone?

While Google's Gmail is still in "beta", they done a lot of good stuff for the iPhone including a quirky but usable IMAP implementation so we can keep mail synced on our mobile, desktop, and cloud. But Gmai's quirkiness isn't restricted to IMAP, the whole concept of GMail just "thinks different", from it's April 1st, everyone-thought-it-was-a-joke launch, to its labels rather than folders, stars rather than flags, and flat search rather than hierarchical sort.

All this leads some to consider a separate GMail client for the iPhone, rather than leaving it bundled into Apple's own MobileMail app. The Google Android G1 goes this route. You have one app for Gmail and another app for all your other mail. Would we ever see this on the iPhone?

Ars Technica spoke with Gmail Product Manager Todd Jackson, who had this to say (or rather, not say):

he did leave the possibility of a dedicated iPhone client on the table

But what would this mean?
