iPhone OS 3 released at iTunes Store mistake, Real release later today

The iPhone OS 3 firmware was accidentally released yesterday in the iTunes Store, ahead of schedule. Or rather, the page was updated, but all the buyers got was a 0.4KB file.

The error was detected yesterday and fixed, so that users attempting to go to that page are redirected. Unfortunately, many people have already purchased the "OS 3" and so Apple are probably trying to get back to the customers who paid by mistake.

Also, the real iPhone OS 3 firmware will be released today at around 1PM in New York (Eastern). You can stop pressing F5 now and wait 'til then for the firmware.
