iPod shuffle 3G poll ends, iPhone OS 3.0 poll begins

With over 3,000 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll—“Did the new iPod shuffle’s lack of built-in buttons stop you from wanting one?” has ended. Readers could say they were definitely planning or considering purchasing a new shuffle but didn’t like this design, that they like the new design and plan to buy one, or were not planning to buy one and had not changed their minds based on the new design.

Half (50%) of responding readers said that they weren’t interested in buying the shuffle before the third-generation version was announced, and hadn’t changed their minds after seeing the new design. Of those who were open to purchasing an iPod shuffle, roughly two-thirds (66%) said that they were either certain about or mulling a shuffle purchase, but decided not to because of the design, while the remaining third said that they liked the third-generation design and planned to buy one. Thanks for all your votes!

Our new poll focuses on iPhone OS 3.0. We’d like to know what feature you’re most excited for in the new software. Is it cut and paste? Stereo Bluetooth, Spotlight search, or MMS support? Perhaps the expanded widescreen keyboard support, or push notifications, or some other upcoming feature? Our new poll, “What’s the feature you’re most excited about in iPhone OS 3.0?” lets you answer that question. You can find the iLounge poll in the left hand column of the main iLounge.com home page. Vote today!

I was most excited about the MMS update untill the last 30 sec of the 3.0 rollout video where they say..MMS not available for 2G iphones…..I guess I will have to be excited about the C/C/P option now….or get a 3G….Apple has made me think twice about being an early adopter of newly released products….( I have almost gotten over the price break that they dropped in on 2G iphones after the first couple of months…..)

Copy & paste, improved bluetooth, tethering, and turn-by-turn. Most exciting, though, is 3.0 as an opening act for a newer, faster iPhone hardware platform!
