Apple has released iPhone / iPod Touch firmware 2.2 beta 1 to developers, seeding a new SDK build (9M2611). Apparently, this new version purports to be “a bug fix release to begin testing for compatibility,” with no mention of new features or functionality (push notifications anyone?).
MacRumors notes that Mobile Safari receives a slight interface tweak in 2.2, moving the Google Search Bar adjacent to (instead of beneath) the URL field.
