    The dev center is so slow you can hardly even login let alone download anything at this stage... That, and the likely NDA and whatnot :)

    It won't run on anything but a simulator, just like how 2.0 beta wouldn't run on 1.0.

    if true, thats a shame.

    I am sure some dev guru will be able to run it on an actual iphone and release it as a torrent ;)

    No, they do release some 3.0 beta IPSWs but very few and they often have limitations.

    That's true on the very few, and these guys won't leak :).

    And isn't the SDK only for those who pay for the developer program right now? Huge disappointment.

    That's in reference to 2.0, unless they decide to release beta firmware to all approved developers.

    Yeah because having any Apple software released on a torrent in recent times didn't cause some issue. :rolleyes:

    so this would just be paid developers? not free sdk users?

    Yeah, it definitely seems like we'll be able to actually have the beta running on our phones. Notice how they say they'll be making both the SDK and the OS available. For any developers who have run iPhone OS betas before, is there any reason I can't run the 3.0 beta on my iPhone which I use as my primary phone?

    Yes it appears that paid developers will receive a beta version of 3.0 today which they can install on their own devices.

    So right there under a big "Get Ready for 3.0" and it is talking about being able to test your 2.0 apps on the phone? I know next to nothing about the development side of things so I dont doubt that I am completely wrong, but that seems a little weird. The way its worded leads me to believe they are talking about testing new apps taking advantage of the new features directly on the phone...

    also there are going to be some apps you might have paid for that won't work on 3.0

    no they're talking about insuring that developer's 2.0 apps work on the new 3.0 OS and don't have any compatibility issues

    In talking to a dev I know, they release a firmware update for them to use and test with. He is planning on downloading it tonight and testing his apps with it.

    Well my phone is already associated with the same AppleID that I use with my developer account. If I install the beta on my phone, when the final release comes out this summer, I assume I can upgrade to the final and everything will be a-ok?
