So it looks like v. 2.1 of the firmware is coming very very soon. A new developers release was sent out to a select group of folks today who are making sure it jives with their existing apps and whatnot.
Apple has not announced a timeframe for the 2.1 release, but the included “Push Notification Service” was promised by September. Despite early hints of turn-by-turn GPS and Copy/Paste, further investigation indicates that these may not have been new findings in the 2.1 firmware (and had also existed in 2.0). References to a new iPod Touch model, however, suggests an iPod Touch hardware upgrade in the coming months.]]>
