when do you think we will get the next upgrade? What might it include? Will it include hardware too? Or is that the "update after next?"

there are no "hardware" updates.

no one knows when a new software update might come. It hasn't even been mentioned in any reliable (or otherwise) rumor-monger sites.

I agree that it will probably be more "bug fixes" instead of anything truly useable. I predict sometime in a couple of months we might see an update.

I have it under good authority that there WILL NOT be a 2.3 firmware upgrade. Just a 2.2.1 to add teathering and then straight to 3.0 to co-enside with the new iPhone will all kinds of new goodies like better camera, better battery, video recording, more memory and more sometime announced in the summer....

I think we'll see an update later this month or start February. The update will be 2.2.1 and including fixes and maybe new features for AppStore - no MMS and Copy/Paste. Then we'll see 2.2.2 and maybe 2.2.3 before the release of the new 3.0 hardware version ...just my guess..

according to my sources, copy and paste is coming in the 3.0 software and no sooner, but MMS still looks doubtful as there would either need to be a separate MMS app or the SMS app would need a complete overhaul to make it work.

What I would like to see:
+ Turn-by-Turn GPS w/Voice
+ Copy and Paste
+ File Downloads

There are probably more but I can't think of anything right now.

@Skol312000: What's with your sig? "...no video recorder or copy/paste." They have both of those things if you jailbreak it.

I don't think we'll see anything until Apple stops selling 3Gs like hotcakes. They're not hurting for businesss. What's their incentive for an update?

Tethering sounds like a good guess for the next firmware, but I agree that nothing "revolutionary" will come out until summertime with the next hardware revision. The software will of course trickle down where it can to the current models.
