“Speaking to analysts for RBC Capital Markets this week, Apple’s Vice President of iPod Product Marketing, Greg Joswiak, said the first software update for his company’s iPhone handset is due to arrive shortly,” Prince McLean reports for AppleInsider.
“‘Management expressed excitement at plans to increase iPhone value over time via new software features, citing ‘the sky is the limit’ for iPhone software,’ analyst Mike Abramsky told clients in a research note Tuesday,” McLean reports. “‘An iPhone update patch is expected shortly.'”
“Abramsky speculated that upcoming iPhone software updates would include new widgets, peer-to-peer applications (chat, picture messaging, social networking), location-based services, MMS support, home networking, and possibly some integration with Mac OS X Leopard,” McLean reports.
McLean reports, “After speaking with Joswiak, the analyst also made changes to his predictions for future iPhone models… Abramsky now says he expects Apple to differentiate its iPhone lineup not by features, but by price and memory capacity.”
