Contact Search, iPhone Australia, 3G?


Engadget has posted screenshots of the newest iPhone 2.0 Beta which was just released yesterday. One of the big features added to the latest beta is the ability to search contacts.

Meanwhile, MacTalk.com.au claims to have intercepted information sent to Australian resellers about the launch of the iPhone in Australia. According to their sources:

- iPhone Australia launch in last week of June release
- More than 1 carrier
- No contract lock in
- Current resellers will be able to sell iPhones

If true, this would represent a significant departure from Apple's current model in the U.S. which locks customers to AT&T specifically.

Finally, there had been reports of 3G chipset (SGOLD3) references in the latest SDK, but there are some doubts as to its significance.
