IPhone 2.2 to Get Podcast Downloads Over 3G, Updated App Store Categories

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)
