iPhone to get iTunes remote control app

Apple has just released a slew of iPhone/iTunes-related updates, and amidst the madness are a couple of pretty exciting bits of info. Most significantly, it looks like Apple is getting ready to provide iPhone and/or iPod Touch owners with a free iTunes remote control application. Very few details were revealed, but there’s a clear reference to the new application in the developer notes for the new build of iTunes 7.7 that was seeded today. We’re guessing there will be some sort of ad-hoc network established between the iPhone and computer, either via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and hopefully we can expect cool features like seeing track names, playlists, and more, instead of just the basic play / pause /fast forward / rewind controls.
