Latest iPhone 3.0 Beta Allows 11 Pages of Apps (180 Apps)

Apple's second iPhone 3.0 beta that was seeded today offers the usual collection of bug fixes and improvements, but does introduce one new feature: users are now allowed 11 pages of apps (180 apps total) on your iPhone and iPod Touch.

The finding was posted with screenshot by TheLoopBlog and was subsequently verified by another user. The currently shipping version of the iPhone firmware only allows 9 pages of Apps (148 apps total). While the distinction may seem small, many users have already run into the 148 application limit in their day to day use.

While Apple has been rumored to offer more robust application support in future versions of the iPhone operating system, no announcements were made during the iPhone 3.0 media event.
