    The Boy Genius Report has found further evidence of a magnetometer/digital compass in OS 3.0 debug menus. Good news for the iPhone GPS/Maps.app aficionados out there.

    I don't understand the importance of a compass in a phone... we can find our direction by usin' the maps app and usin' landmarks on the map to find the directions.
