    Thinking about it this morning, Apple annonce new firmwares months before release to seed them to developers and make a smooth transition (2 ---> 3) right?

    Well if the tablet is an iPhone variation, it will also have firmwares that need to be given to developers.

    It makes sense that today they announce the tablet so they can allow developers to have the firmware before release. As the tablet if it exists is an iPhone variation, a tablet firmware could mean a big firmware change for the iPhone and tablet to all be in line with eachother.

    So iPhone fw 4.0, maybe. But it's a thought...

    Well, that's one thing I'm looking forward to, when the Event starts in about 4-and-a-half hours... The firmware update certainly is long overdue and hopefully it can solve buggy issues like the messed-up playlists in the iPod as well as some items in Settings...

    I personally think it's highly unlikely that a new OS will be announced today. Maybe an update to 3.2 is more likely. I may of courae be badly wrong but that's my view.

    4.0 will be released to developers today. We haven't been able to access our developer stuff since last night via the Apple site.

    Except the tablet becomes loaded with the OS and we'd have no use for a tablet OS without having a tablet, and to get a tablet we have to go to the store so it would have to be released to the public... in which case there would be no need for a beta tablet firmware.

    True, but if it runs on iPhone firmware that allows it to work with other iPhone and touches then all devices will need a new update to add this functionality.

    I think 3.1.3 will come today and 4.0 when the tablet is released. Remember the tablet may be announced but not released...
