iPhone 2.0 to have Contact Search ?

iPhone 2.0 to have Contact Search ?

It appears that Apple may have inadvertently leaked a new Contact Search feature during the iPhone SDK Event.

Observant viewers of the event may have noticed that during Phil Schiller's talk about the new Enterprise features, a screenshot of the Contacts menu was being displayed. This screenshot depicted a little spotlight icon right above the A on the alphabet list.

The spotlight icon was not present during Apple's demos and thus probably wasn't supposed to be revealed.

...going back to watch that presentation again...there is also the addition of a "groups" icon on the top left corner...maybe you can categorize your contacts like palm does...i.e. personal/business/etc...can't wait to find out more in June when it's released...mostly for the fact that all of the snow will be gone where I'm from!

hey wombat...I don't think so...I have no conctacts beginning with a # although I did copy some contacts from my sim card and for some reason they came under a # sign...when I edited the contacts they were removed...either way, I still think if apple were to include a search function, they wouldn't add it there in that small'd think they would put a search icon at the top of the screen where it says "all contacts" maybe on the far top left, opposite the "+" button...

isn't the # sign only shown when you have a contact beginning with a number, i.e. "1derland"?
