The team over at Mac Rumors has done it once again. This time around, approximately half of the official AT&T iPhone Sales Training Workbook has been scanned and released to the web. Within these pages, we learn a bit more about the iPhone than previously known. The most noticeable bullet points, however, are focused on features that the iPhone doesnt include. Oddly missing is support for instant messaging and MMS. Also excluded is support for AT&T specific services such as Media Net, Cellular Video, Media Mall, and TeleNav.
While this may all seem like doom and gloom, the truth is Apple has compensated for a few of these short comings. To make up for the lack of IM, Apple has included threaded SMS conversation support. Of course, this may only serve to help AT&T to push their SMS packages, but it does help remove the sting, a bit. Also, to fill the void left by the exclusion of MMS support, the iPhone will allow users to email video and photos along with rich formatted text. On top of that, the device includes support for Yahoo!"s Push Email service which will automatically notify you when you have new mail in your Yahoo! mailbox.
