On Day 2 of tests with the Apple iPhone 3.0 update, eWEEK Labs is finding more and more to like. In this update, Spotlight search is finally in the base operating system, and the effect has been transformational. In addition, refinements made to everyday apps—including the ability to use e-mail in landscape mode—keep the iPhone at the top of the list of mobile devices that deserve attention from enterprise users. There are trade-offs for some of the new features, however, including significant battery drain to enable MobileMe to locate and—if directed—remotely wipe a lost iPhone. By Cameron Sturdevant
