But did you know that actually there are some “hidden” functions that weren’t announced?

In my view this long awaited update contains everything that Apple needed to put the iPhone back on top of all the rivalry thats been going on with other mobiles such as RIM’s Storm or the Palm Pre.

We received some pretty cool LED flashlights from Spotlight last week. For those who have not heard of them before, Spotlights are 12V rechargeable led flashlights / torches, which charge using car’s cigarette lighter. It may be the solution when you need that bit of extra light in your car. For example, if you have dropped something under your seat and you are desperate to find where they were, on the other hand for emergencies, its good to have a torch handy and full of battery when its required.
