Kevin Rose On iPhone 3.0: Cut/Paste, Features Equal Palm Pre

Illustration for article titled Kevin Rose On iPhone 3.0: Cut/Paste, Features Equal Palm Pre

Digg's Kevin Rose is again peddling his Apple rumors, this time in regards to the upcoming 3.0 preview scheduled for this Tuesday. He was dead on last time around—can he do it again?

Now the good stuff. We've had two separate tipsters ping us with the rumors today, which Rose talked about last night during the live Diggnation show at SXSW in Austin.


The breakdown of unconfirmed rumors goes like this:

- Cut and paste in 3.0
- Users magnify or double tap a word to bring up cut and paste
- Pinch "boundaries" to select word(s); Rose called them "copy boundaries"
- Then you get option to cut, paste or copy

Also, the 3.0 update will have enough new features and additions to bring it up to the Palm Pre levels. Whatever Palm Pre has shown us so far, apparently, the iPhone will have too when 3.0 becomes official. That point remains a bit hazy right now, so anyone who was at Diggnation last night who can help elaborate a bit more would be awesome in my book.

Lastly, there will NOT be video, nor will there be MMS. Boo. This last point seems to contradict BGR's MMS rumor from the other day. [Thanks, Kyle and Abdul!]

I can't wait for copy and paste. Then I'll be able to copy over the user name and password whenever someone sends me a picture message.

I really don't understand the anger some people have about MMS being on the iPhone. It is very convienent for a lot of people. If you hate it that much, just don't use it. I for one, like to get picture updates of my friends and family, especially now that I have a niece.

It seems the people who keep shouting for people to send emails instead have nothing better to do than check their email every few minutes from their phone. I only know 1 other person with an iPhone and am sick of heaving to go to a website that works 1 out of 5 times. I just don't understand why people keep saying it's dying. It's very simple and is instant.
