Counting Down to iPhone 3.0 OS

Update: The new OS is available for download, reports TheAppleBlog.  AT&T is also offering more subsides for iPhone 3G S even if you still have not met your contract obligations. I guess we should thank Ron Lewis for this lowering of surcharge

The world (or at least iPod Touch and iPhone owners) is eagerly awaiting the release of the new iPhone 3.0 OS, which is likely to be available for download at 10 a.m. PDT. There have been rumors flying around that the download is going to be late by a day.

These rumors are patently false. We have not heard anything otherwise, and there seems to be a time-zone confusion. A Computerworld report is based on information published on a web site in Singapore. Given that Singapore is 15 hours ahead of PDT, it will be 1 a.m. on June 18 local time that the software will be available for download in that country.

For me, the killer feature is cut, copy and paste. And I would say, Find My iPhone would be the other great feature, but I use an iPod Touch, which almost never really leaves my tiny apartment. Anyway, are you planning to upgrade? If so, what are the features you are excited about?
