Next Gen iPhone: Screen Leaks Re-Confirm Video Recording, Voice Control, More!
When it rains, it pours, and when it's pouring, and leaking, that makes a flood. No sooner did some video-recording iPhone 3.0 screen shot confirmation get posted, than BGR whipped out a slew of their own.
Double confirmed now? And will it require that next gen iPhone hardware?

On a side note, it's looking more and more like an upgrade for me in August (when I'm eligible and IF there is new iPhone hardware).
it could be sort of like the first generation iPhone and location services. you could use location services on the first generation iphone, just not to the same resolution as the GPS enabled 3G.
the incentive to keep the 3G as up to speed as possible given the hardware is the same as keeping the 1G up to speed as much as possible given the hardware. there's a huge install base currently under contract and they'r not all going to switch right away. in the meantime you want to keep the app store market for video based apps as large as possible, because you get a cut of that market and it keeps people tied to the platform.
so my guess is 3G = low resolution video capabilities, next gen = high resolution video capabilities, possibly even HD video.
As said earlier there is no way to know which is which.
I am leaning towards that they had planned for these updates, but just didn't have time for it.
And let's not forget... Apple was firmly convinced no one would ever want to install anything more on the phone at all. I firmly believe it was customer community "feedback" (including the jailbreakers) who finally convinced them that native third party apps were the way to go... and now the resulting AppStore is all the rage in the market. Apple should listen to it's customers /again/.
They’re finally giving us what we want……better late than never =)
I really hope something comparable to quicksms is added, I recently found out about this app thanks to tipb commenters <3 it’s perfect for us serial texters
Good to see someone is paying attention to detail :)
I only use the camera once in a while because in certain conditions, it doesn't work well. So hopefully the quality of the video and camera improve in 3.0.
There's gonna be A LOT more videos on YouTube :)
Speaking of YouTube , they need to have the option to upload a video to YouTube right from your phone. That would be cool. I already seen a feature like that for MobileMe so maybe the YouTube app will have something similar.
