    In all of the discussion about the new iPhone, I am finding one thing curiously missing. When the new iPhone 3.0 software is released, will current iPhone 3G phones have video capabilities? Or is that only a feature of the new iPhone 3GS? I know things like the new compass, and new processor and ram are only for the new iPhone 3GS, but I would think the 2 megapixel camera in the iPhone 3G is capable of doing video, it just needs the software to enable it. Does anyone know for sure?

    No. Sorry. But I bet it will be easily enabled, via editing a .plist file, once the device is rejailbroken after the 3.0 update. :)

    All the video recording experiences I had with a JB 3G were horrible. Quality? No, total lack of it.

    From what i've heard the jailbroken video apps are betwen 7-15fps, it's a hardware limitation which is why it wont be on the iPhone 3G

    Absolutely not! More like 15! LOL! Just imagine how 30FPS would look on a cellphone...awesome.
