    I used the iPhone OS 2.2 beta under Apple's iPhone developer program (the NDA expired as of today) and I have to say, the iPod touch had TREMENDOUS PROBLEMS WITH STREETVIEW....

    I had iPhone running 2.2 beta, and it had no problems with streetview, but under iPod touch, the firmware was okay, but IT DRAINED BATTERY MUCH QUICKER THAN THE iPhone!!!!

    probally cause the Iphone firmswares ARE NOT designed for the ipod touch this has proved in the past that the iphone firmware updates drain the battery more than the ipod touch.

    he means he used ipod touch beta firmware that had google street view in it

    correct me if i am wrong.

    he's saying apple meant to include it, but something went wrong so they took it out

    Yes, you are correct....

    From what I know, Apple will release another firmware update ONLY for the iPod touch sometime after Thanksgiving, but before Christmas to add the street view function.

    Otherwise, it will be released during Macworld.

    I predict they will make us buy it with 2.3 at MacWorld like they made us pay for the iPod touch upgrade last year.
    It better have more stuff like copy/paste and backgrounds to go with it or I'm not paying a dime.
