iPhone 3.0: WiFi Auto-Join and Login Panel

Following up on the MobileMe data merge screenshots... We'd heard mention of this when iPhone 3.0 was introduced, but it's the first time we've actually seen how it actually works. WiFi Settings now includes and option for auto-join, which we're assuming saves passwords for commercial, web-fronted WiFi services like you'd find at a hotel or coffee shop.

Also, when you log in, you get a special slide-up window with some new controls and an embeded web-view -- no more app-jump to Safari.

Very nice!
