What is with the new contacts button? Am I missing something having 2.0 on my V1 iPhone? I like the new contacts search function, but how hard was it to tap "phone" then "contacts"? OMG, now it is one less touch of the screen to get to my contacts. So tell me, is there anything different about the two contacts or is this simply just a shortcut?

yeah, I was confused by that as well...moved to last page. I guess maybe it is gearing up for businesss users who may have 100 contacts (email, office, mobile, etc). They may want to pull up the email address or home address and not actually make a call.

The thing is, the Contacts app has been there for a while, at least in 1.1.4 (maybe before that). However, we just couldn't see it, without the use of JB apps like poof. I think this was a way for Apple to point to a new "feature" that really isn't new at all. More like, we decided not to cripple a function that has been present for a while.
