If you're an iPhone app developer, head on over to Apple's developer site and snag a copy of the Beta 3 SDK for iPhone 3.2. Why? Well, it'll allow you to easily create "universal apps," i.e. taking new or existing iPhone code and quickly getting it up to speed to run on the iPad.
Speaking of which: MacRumors continues to hunt for truffles in the 3.2 SDK code, and found the above test conditions in a header file. Now, zoom and/or flash are still high on the iPhone "it would be nice if…" list, and a front-facing camera on ANY iDevice is shaping up to be the next gotta-have-it hardware upgrade. In fact, here's a close look at the (oversized) videochat accept/decline buttons previously uncovered:
Too big for an iPhone screen, but perfect for the ol' iPad.
There's no question that the iPad has, for better or worse, captured the public zeitgeist since its coming-out party: according to a survey by RBC/ChangeWave, more people are "likely" to buy an iPad today than were likely to buy an iPhone in 1997, despite the fact that the iPad is a new type of computer in an unproven market segment. It's now up to the app coders, as well as Apple's own hardware developers, to build on that advance hype and anticipation and release an iPad experience that truly makes it the "must-have" gizmo of the next decade.
