New iPhone 2.0 features outed

Accompanied by photographs of the hacked beta 2.0 version of the iPhone’s Software, Engadget has posted a list of several features that have been added to the as-yet-unreleased update. Though most of the features, such as Exchange server support, the App Store, Cisco VPN support, and Parental Controls for iPod, Safari, YouTube, the iTunes Store and App Store are already known, and others have yet to be unlocked by Apple, the following additional features have been discovered:

An expanded Calculator, with a widescreen-orientation “scientific mode,” featuring functions found in more deluxe pocket calculators.

Multiple simultaneous message deletion in Mail.

iPhone Software 2.0 is due for release at the end of June. As is always the case with unreleased and beta Apple software, features may be unexpectedly cut or added to the final version.

Multimedia Messaging (MMS) is a proprietary metered network.  Ubiquity is no reason to use it.  Don’t demand Apple to support MMS, demand that Nokia, Motorola, Sony, et al support standard POP3/IMAP e-mail and send it over the internet rather than their closed network.  Bits are bits. Don’t used closed networks!

The one application that I miss on my Samsung Sync… a voice recorder.  I would have thought that would have been in the initial release of the iPhone.

What about 3G?  I’ve heard sooo many conflicting reports to its realistic effectiveness on the AT&T network and its havoc on battery life.  Anyone offer advice on the matter?

please can we get mms, cause going to the website really sucks and we can’t save the pics to our phone, what kind of phone dont have mms, is it really that much of a hassle, we pay all this money for this phone which is great by the way but we can’t send and receive mms like everybody else and it really sucks. We should also be able to transfer files via Bluetooth

Please, please, please . . . we need a SEARCH capability on the iPhone.  And, If we can get a option to creating repeating alarms for Mail and Voicemail.  Just having one alarm is not enough.

Second, another nicety would be to have the ability to transfer files/contacts between iPhones, similar to the Treo.

Finally, having a more robust NOTE function would be helpful.

Hoping for the best!!

Search!!!  Also how about finally getting Notes and To Do to synch with it.  This really needs to get in there for Enterprise users… It’s not just all about Exchange and protocols…

I think a key needed feature is a landscape QWERTY keyboard instead of the way it is currently set up.  It would be easier to type and would provide for more room between keys.

Even though email would be better than MMS, I still say I’d REALLY like this feature to be added..
