Those who already own an iPhone, whether its the 3G version or the 1st gen, can now update to firmware 2.1 through iTunes 8. Although youll lose whatever jailbreak privileges you may have by updating, you can, however, expect the following improvements in your iPhone:

Decrease in call set-up failures and dropped calls
Significantly better battery life for most users
Dramatically reduced time to backup to iTunes
Improved email reliability, notably fetching email from POP and Exchange accounts
Faster installation of 3rd party applications
Fixed bugs causing hangs and crashes for users with lots of third party applications
Improved performance in text messaging
Faster loading and searching of contacts
Improved accuracy of the 3G signal strength display
Repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages
Option to wipe data after ten failed passcode attempts
Genius playlist creation
So if youv got iTunes 8 installed already, hit the update button now because itll take some time to download as the size of the update is a bit on the hefty side. So far, the only downside to it is that its currently still jailbreak-proof, but maybe whatever flaws it has just hasnt been reported yet.

I really like the Genius playlists.

Haven't really seen any improvement of the battery life over the weekend however, but the text messaging has definately got faster
Battery life was good anyways, but one thing that i hate is the backing up it takes FOREVER!
i am not updating to itunes 8 heard so many bad reports about it!
