Those who went to the recent WWDC were able to be part of a revolutionary new iPhone experience - at least they could be if they had the iPhone OS 3.0 beta! Those that had it, were able to watch live TV - from Tel Aviv, no less - of the finale of ‘The Amazing Race Israel”. But the stream only worked with iPhone OS 3.0.
So you will want to know what that means for us - the average iPhone user. Well, several things - firstly, the iphone OS 3.0 is being released to developers today. That means that we can expect a pretty quick response from at least some TV stations around the world and be able to subscribe to their networks in the near future.
It also means that we should see the iReshet app released any day now - as the promise at the WWDC was that the iReshet app would be released soon after the iPone OS 3.0 had been released. Reshet is the top/ most successful channel in Israel - you can get a preview of the quality of their shows in the above video.
Finally, the app will allow live TV application for both the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch. So keep an eye out for this app - if only to get a look at whatis in store for us with live TV on the iPhone.
And if this new development does not excite you (we don’t believe you) then here is some of the other great new technologies available in the iPhone 3GS:
