    I can't really speak much of it, but there is a new feature on the iPhone for when your on the phone app in your favorites, you can simply switch to landscape mode and instantly be in cover flow with all your contact's pictures scrolling at your will. At the top is the name of your contact and at the bottom you will find their phone number along with numerous options. Touch the person you would like to call and it's as simply as that to make a call. This will be the only thing I reveal as it's the only info I can retrive from my contact who works at Apple in the iPhone software team department. This is a small but very useful feature.

    While not an outrageous "tale", I believe a :rolleyes: sums this up.
    Though we'll see eventually.

    ah, finally a way of flipping through my vast collection of ex-girlfriends.

    sounds like a cool feature.

    I'm pretty sure that the CoverFlow UI is going to be kept music-only.

    Coverflow is used to display any kind of art in iTunes. I would call a picture art, and it seems like something Apple would do.

    Did many Bothans die to bring us this information? If so, I'd be very impressed.

    I'm hoping that Apple will enable web browsing in landscape mode - doing the pinch to enlarge thing when vertical is going to get old very quickly.

    You would think that with toxicbomber being a MacRumors "member", i.e., being around here for a while, he'd have more sense than making up information.

    I really hope you're being sarcastic! If not, then I suggest you go here:

    http://www.apple.com/iphone/internet/

    And watch the Safari video; first one that plays...

    As for the OP, put me with :rolleyes: club.

    Put me in too! :rolleyes:

    But I guess this would be a cool feature? I'm not sure how useful it would be though. I'd rather have voice recognition where you speak the person's name and it calls them. (Which is already on most phones). Unlike music, I don't usually scroll through my phonebook and decide "Oh, I feel like talking to this person, I'll call them." I've usually already made up my mind about who I'm going to call.

    I didn't make this up! Honestly you couldn't tell if I was lying or not. When you see the final outcome you'll see.

    I believe it. If I were to lie about a feature I would say something ridiculous like "There is a G5 in the iPhone!"

    It's not a big deal feature, Apple Legal won't be coming after you because it's not a big deal.

    I'm trying to see how a feature like this - even if true - would be useful. I have, between my work and personal contacts, somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 folks.

    I don't know them all by face, but by name, or their association to me.

    And I don't have a single friggin' picture of any of them.

    And I don't search by visual characteristics, but - again - by last name, company, or school. So what freaking difference does it make if I can "View By Photo"?

    Are you sure this isn't a new Windows Mobile feature? It's a lame enough idea. :cool:

    I am not going to be quick and to think this claim is fake, because like someone said before, it's not a big deal. I mean I guess it would be nice and make the interface a little bit cooler, but it's not really necessary. The one feature I would love is when SMSing, you can turn your iPhone into landscape mode and the keyboard would follow with it. Now that would be nice.
