It’s the little things that count, right? In addition to information pointing to support for a 3G chipset, a few clever souls have uncovered some interesting new features in the newest developer build of the iPhone software. The most recent version of iPhone firmware 2.0 includes a feature that allows users to easily download and archive images from web pages viewed on Safari. A simple tap + hold brings up a dialog box that provides the option to save the selected image to the Photos application on the iPhone. Pretty sweet. Now when is that 3G iPhone dropping again?

UPDATE: Okay, after some poking around, I found that you can also save images from emails as well. Nice. – BG
