Rumour roundup about Apple’s iPhone 4G new features

It is unbelievable that the iPad Can’t Play Flash Video. Also, the possibility that the iPhone OS 3.2 is iPad-only makes it easier for the iPhone fan to wait a little while longer for more impressive features.
There is one big advantage that the Google’s Android OS has against Apple’s iPhone OS… Google’s Android OS is open source. Making the source available to all programmers and would be software developers, will lead to more developers, more inspiration and more features.
A very smart move in our humble opinion.
