iPhone 4.0 Release: Another WWDC 2010 Checklist

I think that it’s become pretty obvious now that Apple will use today’s WWCC 2010 event in San Francisco to finally unveil the fourth generation iPhone and iPhone OS 4.0. And as you can imagine, there will be thousands – if not millions – of people waiting to hear what’s said.

According to an article by Jason D. O’Grady over at zdnet.com, if Apple wants to stay competitive with the advancements made in Android and the onslaught of smartphones that are running it, they may need to address some serious holes in its platform.

Jason has provided a WWDC 2010 checklist, which he will be using to score Apple’s keynote address today. One of the things mentioned in the list is video calls. As the new iPhone is said to have a front-facing camera, Apple should release seamless, high-quality video chat.

Another issue brought up in the checklist is Google Apps. The report says that Apple should bury the hatchet with Google, to allow free apps such as Google Voice, Skymap, Shopper and even Translate. If Apple is allowing Skype, then why not allow Google Voice.
