Where to get the best iPhone 3.0 OS news coverage *updated*

What sites are you using to find out about the latest iPhone 3.0 OS news? That’s the question I posed earlier on Twitter and got some super suggestions.

@Vojtech over in Prague had this suggestion:

RT @arstechnica: Live Ars Technica coverage of Apple’s iPhone OS 3.0 event – http://ping.fm/Ia7Sc

And

Ars Technica, Engadget, Friendfeed, Techmeme and of course twitter

@MartinSFP is knocking around Manchester with things to do — but will be relying on Twitter and Engadget via his iPhone.

@JimWild is going to be relying on Gizmodo

@thirddesign reckons that:

@macworld will have it totally covered.

I think he’s right.

@mac005 will be using Twitterfall. That is a rather good idea. Just stick in a few iPhone terms and woosh, you’ll see it all realtime. He also suggested checking out VentureBeat’s coverage.

@BudgieUK has this suggestion:

@Ew4n I always follow @iPTIB on Twitter for breaking iPhone stuff… I trust his perspective (and a great blog too)

The event starts at 5pm London time. But it’s not for everyone. Regular MIR reader, Terence Eden, isn’t having any of it:

@edent: I’m not. I’m quite happy to wait. Perhaps even until the dead-tree lot pick it up. It’s not news that needs to be reacted to instantly.

You’re probably right Terence…

That said, here are the major Live Blogging URLs for your clicking convenience (and in no particular order):

Engadget Live Feed
Gizmodo Liveblog
Ars Technica (using Cover It Live — nice)
RedEyeChicago (iPhone Therefore I Blog – iPTIB)
VentureBeat’s Liveblog
PocketGamer’s Liveblog

    shocked, absolutley shocked, you did not include GDGT: http://live.gdgt.com/2009/03/17/live-iphone-os-

    GDGT is basically the site started by the guys who started Engadget but then left to do their own thing.

    To elaborate. It's not that I'm a Mac hating zealot (I am – but that's beside the point) but what would I do with real-time information?

    I don't need to make any choices, I won't be able to grab the software right away, it's not like I can influence it, I won't need to react to it in any way.

    I'd much rather wait for detailed, dispassionate analysis. Some comparison of the announced features with what's already on the market.

    I used to hang on every word – every rumour – about Star Wars films etc, It didn't enhance my enjoyment – it was just something else to distract me from reality.

    Hmmm… Very rambley… maybe 140 characters is enough…
