iPhone 3.0 video editing?
Although unused, the beta iPhone 3.0 firmware contains underlying references to video editing, an Austrian site notes. Graphics files appear to be tied to various editing controls, including scrubbing and picking the beginnings and endings of clips. When assembled the images could be associated with a dedicated editing bar, to be introduced in future iterations of iPhone 3.0.
Video is expected to be a central aspect of the next iPhone, with recording capabilities being supplemented by a faster processor and a new, 3.2-megapixel camera. The device is also expected to support 7.2Mbps broadband, which may make it possible to upload or stream more content including videos from the rumored iTunes Replay service. Such a service could theoretically let iPhones watch titles from the iTunes Store without having a locally-stored file.
