iPhone 3.0 beta reveals hidden video editing graphics

One of the gripes many people have with Apple's iPhone is the lack of video features. It's been rumored that there will be video included in the next iteration, suspected for a June announcement, but it seems Apple isn't leaving it at that. AppleInsider is reporting that an Austrian site named Benm.at has discovered graphics in the latest iPhone 3.0 beta, that suggest video editing will be coming with the next iPhone release.

Many other cellphones makers include basic video editing tools with their phones, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Apple will do the same. It would be good for Apple's reputation if they include this; so far they've eliminated the common complaints of copy and paste, search and MMS. If they can include video and bump up the camera quality, then those who are anti-Apple will have much less in their arsenal.

An image of the discovered images is included below:

There has been an immense amount of iPhone rumors lately, but it'd be good if we could somehow get some solid evidence on any improvements that will be made.

My question is this, if I buy an iphone in the next month or two, will I be able to use the 3.0 when it comes out?
Or am I better off waiting until 3.0 is released and then buying one?

If you buy an iPhone now, you'll be able to use 3.0, yes, but no doubt a new iPhone will be released along with 3.0 so it's probably best to wait.

3.0 Has Video MMS now. My guess is thats what this is for. Allow me to say "yea crop the video from here to here" then send just that. Thats all it is I think.

You suck at teh intarweb.

the Nokia Nseries had video editing, so i don't see why the iphone can't have it.
besides, it's marketed as a multimedia phone.

yeah... 'cause that's exactly everybody needs... the ability to edit videos on-the-go...
...I really don't see this being a good idea on such a small phone. For once, I hope this "rumor" does go turn in to truth.
you thought texting while driving was bad? This opens up an ENTIRE new window...

anyways... I'm still looking forward to the 3rd gen iPhone
