Today June 17, is the day that iPhone OS 3.0 is available to the masses for download and I'm predicting upgrade fever will be the phrase for today and the next few weeks.
This started developers and companies alike to certify their applications for 3.0. Sybase was one such company that successfully re-certified their iAnywhere Mobile Office application. Then on the first day of WWDC09 the announcement was made of the release date.
As a recap...3.0 is a major update for iPhone & iPod Touch for Developers...
Users, along with developers, will be looking forward to some of the new features, with great satisfaction that they have finally arrived
OS 3.0 also introduces Landscape mode to email, calendar etc as well as some search facilities and a brand new home screen.
They say in IT that 'a week is a long time' and since the announcement at WWDC09, it probably has seemed a lifetime for those iPhone and iPod Touch users that are eager to get the new features on their devices. iPhone OS 3.0 is available free for iPhone customers, but $9.95 for iPod Touch owners.
I believe that this introduction will be the first hurdle cleared for the final phase of adoption into Enterprise businesses. The second hurdle will be Friday when the iPhone 3G S becomes readily available
