The iPhone's Achilles Heel: Video

By Published on .

Apple's introduction of the newest version of the iPhone last week hit snags as activation problems plagued new customers. The uber-popular cell phone still does not include many video applications. The first generation phone didn't either and the new one still does not support video capture. Still, it's widely expected that Apple will build in Web-video applications, features and programming into the popular phone in future upgrades. Apple has sold more than 6 million iPhones since its launch last year. Besides YouTube, the iPhone does not include officially supported mobile video programming from television networks that have been active in the mobile video business, like NBC, Discovery and ESPN. However, the iPhone application store does include a few video applications, such as video search from Truveo to search for video that plays on the iPhone.
