Apple Kindlizes the iPhone, Amazon.com gets sued

Highlights from Apple’s preview of the new iPhone software: It’s finally getting cut-and-paste capability and MMS.

Apple’s also offering new tools for companies to produce digital book stores for the iPhone and subscription services through the App Store, adding some of the key business capabilities in Amazon.com’s Kindle.

I wonder if the New York Times and other papers will stop offering free news apps on the iPhone, now that Apple’s giving them tools to charge for subscriptions.

The 3.0 software upgrade is coming this summer. A few of the features — including MMS and A2DP Bluetooth — won’t work on the first generation iPhone. The upgrade is also available for the iPod Touch, for $10.

This is culled from live blogs from the Cupertino event include Engadget and Eric Savitz.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, Amazon was sued today in Delaware by Discovery Communications, which alleges the Kindle infringes on Discovery’s patented copy protection technology.
