I made a bunch of predictions yesterday about what would be announced today at the WWDC keynote. Here are the ones I got right:
The App Store will not be ready on Day 1 (meaning today).
A normal headphone jack.
Increased battery life.
New colors…I was thinking red, but for some ungodly reason they went with white…LOLWUT?
Several are as yet unknown:
Tethering. This was not mentioned in the keynote and I can’t find any posts to confirm it and the Apple website does not seem to mention it. If the phone does not tether, a lot of people are going to be disappointed, and possibly more will be actually pissed.
Full A2DP support. Not mentioned, although they did say the audio support was significantly improved. We’ll see.
iPhone as remote. Still possible through an application from the App Store but no official offering from Apple, as far as I know.
A few things were totally off:
Front and rear facing video camera. Totally false. No video camera, period. The iPhone continues to be the only modern mobile phone that completely lacks a video capture feature.
More memory. Apparently, no one needs more memory. The two models offered are still the 8 GB and the 16 GB models.
Flash on the iPhone. Problematic still because of the lack of memory? Not sure on that.
OLED display. No mention. Zero. Total fantasy of mine.
