Apple rumor mill speculates we will get the iPhone OS 2.2 update sooner than expected. According to popular iPhone rumor blog, iPhone Hellas, the iPhone OS 2.2 update will be available on November 21. The new feature list does not indicate Copy and Paste function.

“Like always, the jury is still out on any last-minute surprises. Since there were a few major additions to iPhone OS 2.2 beta 2 that weren’t in beta 1—like the walking directions, public transit route information, the application scoring, and the direct podcast downloading over the air—we may find more things in a third beta,” speculates Gizmodo.

  1. Apple’s flagship product (the iPhone) could only be found at a few large retailers which includes AT&T, Best Buy, and Apple Stores. Now, it looks like the crew is adding a new member to their team, Wal-Mart. According to the article, Wal-Mart is rumored to be offering the iPhone’s 4 GB model by December 15th, for the price of $99. This would allow holiday shoppers a chance to buy before Christmas. Other rumors, however, place the release date to December 28th and instead of the 4gig model it is expected to be the 8 GB model, which is said to be sold at $197. As usual, Wal-Mart’s ambition to provide consumers the lowest prices on consumer products and merchandise will of course kick in. Rumor has it that they will have the iPhone on the counter for two dollars less than any other retailer, which may not seem like much of a discount. But when you think of it, any savings is better than no savings at all. Obviously, Apple wants to take advantage of the daily foot traffic at each of Wal-Mart’s locations, but will not want to overstep its other established retailers by undercutting them. Since their sales have not been where they would like them to be, Wal-Mart will most likely make a good profit from the deal since it will help boost their consumer electronic sales. They are taking major steps and have brought in a third party to help educate their staffs and consumers on the latest technologies regarding this purpose.
