The second iPhone 3.0 Beta is now available, and developers can go download it immediately from Apple's iPhone dev page. Updated.

No idea what bugs it fixes or if it improves speed and stability at all, but it's new, and you like new things. [iPhone via Gear Live]

Update: A developer reader tells us that it does feel much snappier, especially in the scrolling area.

He also says that there's a new Store area in the Settings, which is kinda mysterious because there's nothing there.

Update 2: Push notifications now work, and developers can start making apps with it. AND, Skype still works over 3G.

It would take the confusion out of why it takes it 5 software updates and is replaced by new hardware by the time a firmware comes out that works... :-)
