Apple shows some new iPhone 3.0 OS features
Tethering will also be available via USB and Bluetooth (for both PC and Mac), but will require carrier support and AT&T will not have it for the moment.
Language support has also been increased and now more than 30 languages are supported by the platform.
For more features – check our iPhone 3.0 OS preview.
The new platform will be available, starting June 17 for free for the iPhone and at a price of $9.95 for the iPod touch.
*UPDATE: Apple has just announced the new iPhone 3GS. Check our news story here!

Honesly the iPhone will have the win here...I know Some PDA's dont have a "sleep" or Standby mode but most of them now do in order to meet boot up speed demands and processing speed as well. with the iPhone since the battery is un-removable, it renders the phone findable in almost every scenario. I lost my Storm and the only way I can track it is if the phone is either on or in stand-by, but if someone pulls the battery I'm screwed. I think this may be the only "pro" to the many "cons" of the stationary battery...

That's pretty funny that the nonremovable battery actually (indirectly) has a "pro"

I agree, although it technically can be removed if it's stolen. It's also nice you can clear the personal data too. Simple things but something noone else has.
