This week, Apple launched a two-front assault on the mobile phone market with its release of the iPhone 3.0 software and iPhone 3G S. Given the company’s focus on the iPhone it seems only fitting that we devote the entirety of this episode of the Macworld Podcast to it as well.

We do that with two interviews. The first is with Mac accessibility expert, Josh de Lioncourt, who discusses what the iPhone 3G S brings to the sight-impaired and blind. We also talk about the accessibility improvements that will appear in Snow Leopard and why some in the sight-impaired community may be too eager to dismiss Apple’s accessibility efforts.

Next, Macworld associate editor, Dan Moren, and I talk about Dan’s fresh-from-the-oven review of the iPhone 3.0 software.
