New screenshots of the forthcoming iPhone 2.2 software have been dug up by blogger Florian Schimank, and they confirm over-the-air podcast downloads direct to the iPhone.
The shots show the new iPhone podcast directory interface, and it appears that the update allows not only new versions of already-subscribed podcasts to be downloaded, but also browsing for new shows on iTunes. Video also appears to be supported.
The shots also show that the App Store categories browser gets a new view, with icons instead of plain text.
This is huge. Being able to browse and download free audio and video content independent of a computer turns the iPhone into a true mobile entertainment machine, and pretty much squashes the competition. (From Wired.com)
