    Gizmodo posts a brief video walkthrough of some of the new features found on the 2.0 firmware.

    According to the site, testing has not revealed any obvious errors, though content filtering is not yet working. The App Store, of course, is also not yet online.

    Apple is expected to release the 2.0 Firmware update on July 11th as a free update to current iPhone owners.

    It certainly looks like it. A sign of true quality.

    2.0 is coming on July 11th 2008, and not a second earlier. :)

    Clipboard support (certainly in the works--maybe touch-and-hold like Apple does for saving emailed photos) and file storage/browsing (hopefully in the works) are the missing pieces now.

    Agreed. Anything of true quality is impossible to break. The laws of matter should not apply.

    watching the video- the crack disappears and reappears, it must be a reflection.

    :confused:

    What kind of reflection stays in the same place on the screen even as the dude moves it about?

    No, you can see it most of the way through, it's just at some angles it's easier to see because of the way the light reflects off the crack. There's definitely a crack there.

    It's there for the entire movie. It's a crack.

    ... That's probably why it's his development phone and has 2.0 on it. :confused:

    Just a guess.

    If you're planning on selling your old iPhoen, you'd be better off not upgrading to 2.0. Until there's a jailbreak/unlock app for 2.0, 1.1.4 is worth more.

    Does the iPhone 2.0 Firmware allow you to choose which email to send from? Just noticed the "From:" portion on the video. Any know if this will also work for .Mac (MobileMe) Aliases?

    I have a crack in my screen and it's virtually invisible when you look at it dead on. You can only really see it from angles.

    The screen shot for the advanced tab says "Use iTunes for internet music playback". Does that mean 2.0 allows internet or rather streaming radio from web sites?

    This is the main reason I've held off on buying an iPhone. I listen on my crappy Treo 700p to David Byrne's music stream from his web site, and I couldn't do that on the old iPhone. In fact, when I'm on a long car ride, I log on to one of my favorite internet radio stations, especially if it is a local station, since 50 miles out reception disappears on a regular radio...

    I dropped my phone numerous times and never once did it crack but if it did I wouldnt blame Apple I would blame myself.

    It will probably be cracked within a week. Then my iPhone will be worth more on eBay as the two-dot-oh software is more desirable for the app store and other features. Then mine will have an advantage over most of the listed phones and hopefully sell for more. I will just have to act fast.

    He had to crack his iPhone to install the firmware, apparently.

    Well, there is at least one really cool thing this video revealed, a request many of us have had since the beginning: we can now use custom Reply To/From addresses in Mail!!! FINALLY!!!!

    This means I'll be able to route my domain's email to my MobileMe account (to take advantage of push email) and reply to mail from the MobileMe account, without having to actually give out my MobileMe address. FINALLY!!!! ;)
