The engadget link shows a 3G S. But, you are correct that a 3G device would need to be jailbroken in order to get the battery percent indicator.So the engadget video above which shows a 3g running 3.0 and that feature must have been jailbroken? Im surprised, thats not very professional. Any confirm if it is do-able on 3g?
Ok I can understand everything else, but no battery percentage on V1 and 3G is weird. That doesn't require anything new.It's a 3GS only feature. The phone that engadget is showing is a 3GS not a 3G so that's why it has it. I searched all over the 3.0 for it on my 3G and it doesn't exist.
i thought we were fairly certain the 3GS has a dedicated voice recognition chip to handle all of the voice processing...I can just about see some justification for video recording being specific to the new hardware, but Voice Control and this battery feature are just dopey ones to keep from 3G users ...
Hmmm, I don't recall hearing that - maybe I missed it. I did see Gizmodo saying roughly same as I feel - that voice control has been available on an assortment of crappy, low-specced WinMo phones for years - so not sure how on earth you justify the 3G not being able to handle it ...i thought we were fairly certain the 3GS has a dedicated voice recognition chip to handle all of the voice processing...
