Contact Search Finally Coming to iPhone?

A presentation during last week’s SDK event indicates firmware update 2.0, due this June, will - at last - allow you to search for a contact in the iPhone address book without having to flick through the whole list.

Look like Apple will finally add the ability to search contacts in the iPhone's address book when firmware upgrade 2.0 is released this June. This became apparent during Apple's presentation introducing new enterprise features for the iPhone at the SDK launch event last week.

You see, some sharp eyes detected a spotlight search icon just above the letter A in a picture of an iPhone running the iPhone 2.0 software.

Today, the iPhone is just about the only smartphone, perhaps even cell phone, to not allow you to search your address book for a contact. With the iPhone, you have to flick the screen with your finger until you find the one your want.

That's not very convenient for anyone, especially for people like sales folk, who often have thousands and thousands of contacts to sift through. Thankfully, this will apparently soon change.
