As it turns out, contact searching and meeting invitations may be coming to your iPhone with the release of the 2.0 firmware, which is expected in June.
Engadget has posted screenshots from the latest build of the iPhone SDK that clearly show not only contact searching but also meeting invitations.
The weird part: the two new features are purportedly in the Enterprise version of firmware 2.0. According to the report the Enterprise version doesn't have icons for the App store or iTunes store either.
I don't know about you, but I'd hope that contact searching and meeting invitations would be in the consumer version of the firmware too. For that matter, I bet there are plenty of "Enterprise" users who love to have the App Store and iTunes Store icons too.
Who knew that there was even a separate Enterprise version in the first place?
Instead of segregating features based on a perceived need Apple should give iPhone users a robust configuration interface that allows end users and administrators to customize their iPhone experience to suit their need. That would make more sense to me.
What about you, would you be miffed if Apple didn't include contact searching and meeting invitations in the consumer version of firmware 2.0?
