iPhone V2 Firmware due early July

The WWDC keynote speech has now finished, and the first news is the availability of iPhone and iPod firmware V2 in early July. Free for the iPhone and $9.99 (£6.99?) for the iPod Touch, it boasts the following features:

  • The iTunes app store
  • Apps under 10Mb can be downloaded by Edge, WiFi or iTunes, over 10Mb are Wifi or iTunes only
  • Microsoft Exchange support with push email, contacts, calendars and remote wipe
  • PUSH, a notification service for software developers to allow apps to alert you when new content is available without running in the background and draining your battery
  • Contacts search

I’ve complained before of the charge to iPod owners for the five iphone apps not originally included, but this update adds a lot for your ten bucks. Since this is akin to a new OS version like Tiger to Leopard it seems a small price to pay.
