This is not a rumor and it has been verified. Venture Beat reports that in their March 17th event, Apple will not be showing off any new hardware, but it will be previewing iPhone firmware 3.0.

Boy Genius Report has been tipped that firmware 3.0 will allow MMS and tethering via BlueThooth and USB. What about this good old copy/paste? That’s a mystery so far…
