According to CNET report “iPhone OS 4.0 is imminent. At least, that’s the only conclusion I can draw from an e-mail I just received from a prominent app developer. Just wanted to give you a heads up that we’ve submitted an updated app for the new iPhone OS 4.0 software.” Various reports over internet suggested that Apple’s special media event now reportedly scheduled for January 27th, earlier it was rumored on 26th.

iPhone is getting tough competition from Android based phones, for e.g. Droid, Nexus One etc. We can expect tons of new features in terms of software and hardware in upcoming iPhone and OS. We already published an open letter to Apple “Dear Apple, here’s what we want for iPhone 4.0”, as usual we have to wait for the Apple event where rumors turns in to reality.
