These basic phone features are found on your 9.99$ Samsung.
I am expecting big news for 3.0
like Video LOL (again found on a phone in a 9.99$ range...
for a special announcement, it best be BIG.
For starters, Apple not including MMS was a choice (for whatever reason) not a technical hurdle. Copy and paste on the other hand is a technical hurdle. Copy and paste on a touchscreen phone with fingers as the input is not the same as a mouse or stylus on any other system.
PS: Those $9.99 phones you mention really don't cost $9.99 and they aren't touchscreen.

Safari does need more RAM, even just to keep pages from reloading. I often run Mail (which DLs in the background afte you leave it) while using Safari, listening to music and somethings having a timer going to remind me of something. Every now and then it essentially freezes. It'll clear itself up, but can take a few minutes when it happens.

Maybe that's what they'll do - any bg task that exceeds a certain footprint gets automatically killed.
I suspect the next major iiPhone revision will get more RAM, a bett CPU and GPU, but I still don't think that background apps will be allowed. There are just too many of the current included apps that need to be sped up. Then you have issues with battery drain. The notification server is the way to go.

Yet I mostly hear how great it is. If Apple released such a poor quality recorder the same people would be complaining about how bad it is. If the next iPhone gets Snow Leopard, 50-100% more RAM, better ARM and Tegra, then I don't see any technical reason why video recording won't happen.

Yet Google owns one of the most popular Flash-based sites on the planet.
BTW, which version of Flash is available for jailbroken iPhones. Surely if Flash is capable of running on OS X and the 'only' reason it's not included is because Apple is preventing it, then it should be on jailbroken iPhones after nearly two years streaming Hulu perfectly. FYI, Hulu states that they require Flash 9.0 or better.

I'd like this as well. I'd also like them to fix the weird ToDos mailbox in my Mobile Me account on my iPhone. It's not anywhere I can find, just the iPhone and I can't remove it.

Double-tap and hold seems the most logical solution to me.

Are you kidding me?
And programs used a lot less RAM back then too. These are apps built with a modern API. The Pre's apps are just localized webpages. Something that the iPhone will most likely will include since it will have the most up-to-date version of WebKit using HTML 5, which is required for this functionality.

It's cut & Paste for crying out loud!!!
And you call "Italiankid" a douchebag? Better look in the mirror iVlad.
If it's so simple, how do you implement it? Do you not realize that the controls you use to cut and paste on your PC are not going to work on the iPhone? It's a lot more than creating a Clipboard.
