iLounge and AppleInsider have posted good screenshot galleries of the new iPhone 3.0 operating system that was seeded to developers yesterday. Other collections include Engadget, Boy Genius Report, and MobileCrunch.

A few notes from the different galleries:

- Spotlight (search) is said to work well
- SMS messages are sent in the background, which means you can type a new message while the old one is sending
- Notes can be used in landscape
- "Find my iPhone/iPod Touch" option available under MobileMe, which presumably allows you to locate your iPhone from
- Backups of your iPhone or iPod Touch can be encrypted in iTunes
- Notes will sync

The QuickTime stream for yesterday's event demonstrates many of the new features found in iPhone 3.0. The 3.0 firmware will be available to end-users this summer.

Update: Video of someone demonstrating iPhone 3.0.
