The search is on - for iPhone 2.0

Who knows what the eagle-eyed people at blargkaboom were searching for when they discovered a magnifying glass icon in the top-right corner of a screen shot used in a slide presented by Phil Schiller during last week's Stevenote. The slide in question (entitled "Push Contacts") appears about 9 minutes and 30 seconds into the presentation.

This neat discovery tells us a couple of things. Firstly, it clearly indicates that at the top of the Contact List in iPhone 2.0, there will be a handy search box. About time. Secondly, it indicates that there are new features in the frame for 2.0 that have not been officially announced by Apple, and that there may be more clues in those lovely high definition video streams that Apple has so kindly provided. Some of these new features will probably also make their way into the Beta release that will be distributed to a select group of enterprise customers shortly. Seems like Spring may shape up to have plenty of Apple rumors after all.
