A recent interview with Apple’s VP or Worldwide iPod and iPhone Product Marketing Greg Joswiak cleared up a few lingering questions about the iPhone 3G. First, the lack of cut-and-paste functionality is simply due to the fact that it wasn’t very high on their list of features to get into the phone. Hopefully this means we’ll see this implemented via a software update someday.
Some good news for those wanting to take full advantage of their iPhone’s GPS. Apparently the phone’s GPS antenna is capable of performing turn-by-turn navigation, however, there are some “complicated issues” surrounding it. He added that “it will evolve, I think our developers will amaze us.” I definitely can’t wait to be amazed by their developers on this front.
Finally, he also commented on issues faced by office suite applications. Apparently each app has its own file space, and “there’s no cross-application file structure.”
