New iPhone 3G Hits Stores Across U.S

that the absence of a copy and paste function on the iPhone is a deal-killer for me personally, because it prevents the phone from being the incredibly productive device that my Windows Mobile phone is.

Well, that the next OS update for the iPhone could include copy and paste, along with turn-by-turn navigation and the ability to allow apps to run in the background.

that a turn-by-turn functionality could be a huge blow to existing GPS navigation manufacturers.

Given the obstacles Apple has placed in front of the iPhone (no choice of carrier, expensive data plan, all the hassles customers have, and continue to have obtaining a phone), the addition of such a critical function as copy and paste could very well encourage a lot of fence-sitters such as myself to get off of our perch.

    I know, I know.

    Every time I look at my beaten and battered HTC Wizard 200, I salivate over the thought of the iPhone. Still, copy and paste, man. I need to be productive. 🙂
