The revision is expected between late spring and early fall this year, with video support and improved gaming hardware via multi-core PowerVR chips as the headlining features. A screen capture from the forthcoming iPhone Software 3.0 on Engadget's website shows a MobileMe panel for uploading images titled "Upload Video," lending further credence to the rumor.
