    Let's face it, it sounds fishy as hell that an iPhone software version doesn't run on an iPhone. What is iPhone OS 3.1 supposed to go to 3.3 for the iPhone?

    In my opinion, this March, immediately prior to shipping of iPad, iPhone OS 4.0 will be announced and it will be revealed that it is actually iPhone OS 4.0 running on the iPad.

    Make sense? Sounds like something to me...

    I highly doubt that 3.2 = 4.0. 4.0 needs to be totally revolutionary. Not just some updates to the user interfaces of Apple's default applications.

    Doubtful.

    Most likely 3.2 is forked code from the iPhone 3.1 code base. I'm sure Apple wanted to get the software up and running as quickly as possible so doing a huge rewrite wasn't an option. They will probably merge the two back together for 4.0. But 4.0 will not be released in 60 days. They wouldn't have released the 3.2 SDK today if that was true. 4.0 should be announced later this year with a final release coming no sooner than this summer.

    Very true. Well, they should make it iPhone OS 3.1.3

    What sense does this make?

    If the iPad is forked from 3.1.2, then they couldn't call it 3.1.3 for the iPad. They wouldn't leave room for a bug fix release for the iPhone if they did that.

    It doesn't at all. It just seems too weird to have iPhone OS 3.2 not running on an iPhone. Jumping from 3.1 to 3.3 just aesthetically bothers me lol. Unless there are no plans for 3.3...which there probably aren't.
