Developers get iPhone 2.1 beta, GPS enhancments hinted
A new iPhone 2.1 software has been seeded to iPhone developers and beta testers, and it looks like Apple is beefing up it's GPS capabilities (maybe they saw our comparison review?)  The core location services are getting many enhancements, such as the ability to tell your direction and speed, which would seem to pave the way for turn-by-turn directions.  We know Telenav is planning on bringing their software to the iPhone, so hopefully this signals that it will arive sooner rather than later.  Rumors also indicate that Apple's new background push service will debut soon, making apps like AIM much more useful.
