Joz Speaks! iPhone 3G Cut-and-Paste, Turn-by-Turn, and Office Suites?
Greg "Joz" Joswiak, Apple's head of iPod and iPhone marketing shed some light on the iPhone 3G/2.0 and some of its highly requested, yet still missing functionality, like where's our ability to select text, cut it or copy it, and paste it?
Apple has a priority list of features, and they got as far as they could down that list with this model
Why isn't there a constant yet ever-so-slightly-disappointed voice telling us we missed our last ten exists and threatening to "re-calculate"?
[T]here are some murky "complicated issues" preventing driving directions apps at the moment. "It will evolve. I think our developers will amaze us."
With regards to David Pogue's claim that Apple said the iPhone 3G GPS antenna was too small for turn-by-turn?
Find his answer after the jump!

We can view Microsoft Office and Apple iWork docs in iPhone 2.0, why can't we edit or create them?
[T]here might be issues with applications each having their own file space. "There's no cross-application file structure."
TiPB is still waiting on DocsToGo as well. What about unspecified technical issues?
[D]idn't know of any such hold-ups.
Does that mean there aren't any, there are but they remain unknown, or that the ones he knows off are all very specified?
Time, and future 2.x firmware updated will hopefully tell.
