Update: Another new feature in the January 2008 1.1.3 software update is the ability to do two-finger touch typing with the virtual keyboard. Basically now you don’t have to lift your finger to type another letter. You can type one letter with one finger, keep your finger on the first letter, and type another letter with your other finger. This gives you the ability to use the Shift key like you do on a regular keyboard. Typing should also be easier with two hands, which should please ex blackberry users. Apple has also increased the limit for text message storage from 1,000 to about 75,000.

Be aware that this update, much like the first firmware update will disable any jailbreak changes or hacks you might have made. If you make use of unofficial third-party iPhone applications and would to keep using them on your iPhone, you may want to refrain from updating to iPhone software/firmware 1.1.3.
