Anyone know when Apple will release iPhone firmware 2.2? Also, what can I expect from the update?

2.2 Will Not Have Major Upgrades

Remember, 2.2 isn't going to be a major upgrade. We'll get a new Google search bar in Safari and some App Store changes.

What it will most likely NOT have:
  • Cut & Paste
  • Flash
  • Turn-by-turn voice navigation
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Video Recording
  • Home Screen Modifications
When we get confirmation of any of these major upgrades, then we'll talk.

The next big thing to come should be the Push Notification service which Jobs promised in September...
Oh yeah, I forgot to put that in there too.

Push MAY be in 2.2 or may not. I'm not getting my hopes up. Also, there is supposed to be some new GPS features, but probably not voice turn-by-turn.

On those days where you wake up naked next to a dead bleeding sheep, the iPhone can help you find your way home.
