Deaf macSome more clarification of future feature updates for the iPhone are emerging.  A somewhat unlikely but reputable source, Barry Solomon at DeafMac, has summarized his recent meeting at Apple/AT&T regarding changes to the iPhone.  

To summarize his summery:

  1. iChat – It is coming.  Was held back by AOL licensing issues (haven’t heard that before but it makes sense).  The application exists and is ready to go
  2. Video Conferencing – No – obviously camera is in the wrong spot and EDGE probably couldn’t handle it.
  3. Landscape Keyboard on all applications- coming in updates
  4. Email wakes phone – coming
  5. Highlighting/Copy/Paste – coming Apple: “We dropped the ball on this one – we just missed it”
