iPhone 2.0

iPhone software version 2.0 was available today, a day before launch, from Apple's web site, thanks to the ingenuity of the Mac Rumors folks, who have since removed the URL, though it probably still works. I got the 250 meg download, and followed the simple directions to install it, and, voila, App-Store-ready iPhone. Below is a screen capture of a page full of App Store apps. That's another new feature of the 2.0 software. If, while holding the home button, you press and release the power button, it takes a picture of the screen, and puts it with the photos taken with the camera. You can view it there, mail it to somebody, or load it onto your computer.

The iPhone 3G hardware goes on sale tomorrow morning at 8am. I don't plan to buy one. My year-old iPhone works fine, especially with the nifty new software.
