Step 1: Place iPhone on table
Step 2: Grab digital camera
Step 3: Take picture using digital camera of said iPhone

Now you have your screenshot!

Seriously though, I don't think there is a way to do this on the iPhone.... yet.....

Yep, that's it.

And just to clarify because I've read some posts by people confused about this process... Hold down the home button, and SINGLE CLICK the on/off/lock button. Don't hold them both down, that's the reset sequence.

@tazinlwfl: wrong

To take a screen grab on your iPhone with Software 2.0, just hold down the home button, then tap the top button. Your screen will flash white signifying you have captured your screen.

The image will pop up in your camera roll in the Camera app or Photos app.

Wanna have fun with this new feature?

Grab a friends iPhone and take a screen grab of their home screen. Open the image and leave the iPhone on the victim's friend's desk. Next time they try to use their iPhone, they'll be perplexed that the buttons don't seem to work. Eventually, the menu for images will pop-up and you'll all have a good laugh. Hopefully.
