    I really hope there's some professional sounding tones in the Tone Store. 90% of what we have now is like a toddler's toy.

    Emoji emoticons-eliminates the emoji app for me.
    Typing shortcuts-maybe... don't know if I'd use them.
    Built-in Dictionary-eliminates the dictionary app for me.
    Wi-Fi sync to iTunes-should be really cool.
    Custom Vibration Patterns-also this. I run mostly on vibrate, so that will be cool.
    LED Flash on incoming calls and alerts-interesting... though how useful based on the location of the LED currently. Maybe a redesign on the next phone?
    Mail improved offline support-hopefully "send when network available" prompt
    Set tones for voicemail, mail, and calender alerts-cool
    iTunes Tone Store-bleh

    Can you customize (i.e. use a different one than what Apple provides) the sounds for email, text messages, etc? Please, please say it's true! This is the reason I did the jailbreak on my iPhone.

    "Swipe to delete songs and playlists "

    Has anyone with the iOS 5 beta tried this? Can you now DELETE songs directly on your device? That would GREATLY enhance the iCloud / iTunes Match functionality.

    There are new tones and an options to buy more but not sure about your own. Can set for all separately

    That would be really cool. I'm somewhat OCD with my music and I hate it when I buy something and I see a "purchased" playlist there.

    Can anyone provide more detail about the bolded? Specifically:

    Gestures: what does what? 3 finger swipe does..? Not all need to be listed, but some of the cooler ones plese

    Mass Configuration: Aside from what that can already be configured in iOS 4..?

    Vib. Patterns: How long can they last? What can they be applied to?

    VO Item Chooser: Say what? (no pun intended, just want more info)

    Smart Playlist: Can I create a SP within the Music app on my iPhone/iPad now?

    Yeah the multitasking gestures is the one that stands out for me too. They did briefly mention it I think.

    Thanks. This is a great feature. :)

    Curious how this all ties together. Questions:

    1) If you delete songs from your iPhone, I asume it doesn't delete them from your main iTunes LIBRARY- Correct?

    2) If you delete songs from your iPhone that are part of what normally gets synced to your iPhone from iTunes, does iTunes reload them onto your device next time you sync?

    3) If you download songs that are normally NOT part of what you sync to your iPhone from iTunes, does iTunes delete the songs next time you sync?

    This can get very confusing indeed.

    I can't wait for the all the new notification stuff. Not just notification center but the possibility of custom text tones, non obtrusive alerts, custom vibration patterns, and using the led flash for notifications as well. It's going to be great.

    There's a video at the bottom of the link that shows off the multitasking gestures.

    I too am curious about the rest of these options though.
