Danny over at Wired managed to wrangle himself a first gen iPhone with iP3G software installed, which is pretty exciting, but it’s actually pretty ho-hum. Maybe a few of these things weren’t known, but they’re not at all surprising. When using the camera it prompts the user to allow for geo tagging. Eh. Location based services can be turned on and off. You can now search for contacts rather than flicking through as well as tagging them with keywords. Pretty sure James will like this. Push e-mail is here! Duh.
Fetch those all important messages every 15, 30 or 60 minutes. You can also manually adjust if you’re that enthused by e-mails from your boss at all hours. My interest is dwindling.
