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.

    remember when the iPhone used to be about the phone?

    And we can't have background apps because of battery power, but movie editing? Streaming video? That's not a power drain? Or is it just an authorized power drain?

    And Apple's creating their own me-too version of 'youtube'?

    Stock pump and dump time

    Yep, its that time again when every stupid feature that you can think of is proposed for the iPHONE... Of course, what good is a cell phone with out CUT and PASTE, a 12 MPix camera, a video camera (HD of course), full video streaming for tv watching.....

    OH yes and my favorite Anti-gravity generator....

    and my friend wants --- full access to every song ever played..... for free... of course. :-)

    So, what do you think? Time to sell high and then dump after all these great features do not come thru and Apple is DOOMED, Doomed I tell you to failure. LOL

    Just LOL.

    Re: Stock...

    You do realize this came from some austrian web site, not some group of analysts. So you're now claiming that anyone who posts any information about any apple product is just trying to pump up the stock? Well, better tell MacNN to stop carrying any mac rumors, then.

    And do you really think anyone is paying attention enough, or cares enough, to think "Wow, it's going to have video editing! Let's buy more stock! It's going to go through the roof!".

    Please....It's taken Apple 3 years to figure out copy/paste and mms.

    What's the problem?

    It's probably just an iPod Video. With the 3.2 or better 5 mp camera, this could take an entire new market that others have pioneered. You don't make it a phone, so you don't worry so much about battery power.

    Not a big gamble. Keep the iPhone, the classic, nano and shuffle - just add something to expand, extend, transform the market. iPods are hand-held computers that are also media players and there is no reason that specialized versions can't be made.
