Firmware 1.1.3

Top news right now is the future release of firmware 1.1.3. There are some nice features including the Google Maps GPS via triangulation. Here’s the list of possible new features:

– ability to send an SMS message to multiple people (currently available from iSMS)
– Google Maps application pinpoints your location using cell tower triangulation (previously available from MyLocation 1.0.5 until it was shut down by Google)
– Google Maps displays the Hybrid map view
– drag and drop application icons on your home screen (currently available in Customize)
– The home screen supports pagination (multiple pages like summerboard)
– ability to add web bookmarks to your home screen (currently available from iphone apper or the LimitedEditioniPhone Source)

This doesn’t add much to a jailbroke iPhone, but if you haven’t jailbroke yours yet, then this is worth it. We won’t be upgrading until there is a jailbreak available. Rumors say it will be released around January 15th.
