iPhone 2.0: Hands-On!

iPhone_20.jpg

Engadget honcho Ryan Block got his techie mitts on a pre-release version of the iPhone 2.0 firmware, and here are the highlights (and lowlights!):

Exchange over Wi-Fi is not instantaneous (!). No contact search he could find. New button in Calendar don't do nothing for him yet. App Store error's out. Cisco branded VPN screen. Parental controls are good-to-go. Wi-Fi order can be specified in prefs. Calc has new widescreen scientific mode and icon. And his favorite new feature -- Multi-Select in Mail!

Head on over for a full rundown and gallery o' pics!

Search feature gone, eh? Le Sigh.

Rene Ritchie says:

May just not be implemented in the early beta? Can't be that hard to add, could it?

The button to nowhere clearly indicates it is still very beta. I'd hope they'd fix push over Wifi before release. Seems very odd that it's the way it is now.
With respect to mail, multi-select is good of course but what email desperately needs IMO is junk mail filtering. Works a treat with the Mac Mail app but without it email is next too useless - that's to say my main (work) email account is so spam-ridden that it's more-or-less unbearable without a local filter.
