The deep dig into the latest iPhone 2.0 firmware beta 3 continues, with iPhoneBuzz reporting that they've found strings and/or references to A2DP stereo bluetooth support, bluetooth remote control, GPS (internal or external via BT not determinable yet), something to do with printers, Google 411 for Maps, as well as previously rumored YouTube plugin for MobileSafari Touch, the Infineon 3G chipset, and the apparent removal of the previous Nike + Sports references.
