I would've voted that the best thing is these features are coming to other phones, except my Droid already has multitasking, folders, wallpapers… [Razz]

Yeah...and a BB using acquaintance looked at the feature list and basically noted a bunch of features seemingly brought over from BB. [Razz]

Except for the fact that some apps will probably only run on 4.0 at some point, I'm not too bothered by the fact that I won't be able to run this...the ad stuff sounds supremely obnoxious.

The one that fascinated me was the Enterprise deployment without the use of iTunes. But one of our Mac Devs informed me that there was some ridiculous number of phones that had to be on the network before you even could use that feature.

So our software still has to go through iTunes, still can't be well configured, etc. etc.

So close, yet still so very far.

If it's an app that you're just needing for use within your office, you can always do straightforward ad-hoc builds for your up to 100 provisioned devices and never actually need to submit it to the App Store. Essentially it's the same as you'd do for giving builds to your testers.

True, but it really isn't the idea.

I work with a software company, and so the Enterprise solution idea sounded like a great supplemental way of managing and installing the software without the Apple approval garbage. But the hurdles means it is probably not a direction that we'll be going in any time soon.

For an Enterprise solution, the iPhone in general really is ass. And after almost a year of owning an iPhone, I still am wholly unimpressed. TBH, I still think the blackberry does work stuff better. Now, the browse the internet you tube f-in off thing. The iPhone has it beat hands down.

I should've figured that. I just read it as blind kool-aid support of the iPhone as cutting edge.
