Directly into the phone? Is this possible? If not they better make it happen. Also they need to incorporate some kind of player...like Windows Media Player that load up a movie when you select a list of movies on a webpage. OR for You tube, load up a flash player to play that particular flash movie. I think this is better than just having a YOUTUBE video gallery where you only pick video and not able to read the descriptions. It's just better if you can select it through a browser.

We don't know if Direct Download is available.
I thought Steve Jobs said this wouldn't happen in his interview at D5. I'll have to check the transcripts again.

Found it:

Walt asks if iPhone will allow over-the-air video downloads. Jobs says no. It doesn’t make sense to buy media that way. Delivery over the airwaves is too costly.

Thanks for the link ;).

It sounded to me like Steve was referring to buying videos from iTunes not downloading video from a website. It would be nice to be able to save a picture or video or even an mp3 from a site to the iPhone's flash.
Just another question that will have to be answered as we get closer to the 29th.

No Direct-to-Phone Downloads. Just like your ipod, you will have to download music to your PC/MAC and run iTunes software. Of course this can change with a possible software upgrade. But with AT&T very slow edge speeds, I'll bet they will enable this on future 3G models or maybe via WIFI.
