im glad to hear that, i was afraid since it was so thin and packed with features the speaker phone would suck.I remember reading in a hands on review shortly after the keynote that the speaker phone was surprisingly good. I look forward to giving it a test drive. It would come in very handy for those times you need hands free operation and you don't have your bluetooth headset.
Could you please provide a reference? I haven't read anything official about A2DP, but I would be surprised if it wasn't present. It seems like a must have for a device that is supposed to be so multimedia driven.

Even if the iPhone doesn't ship with A2DP, it can be added down the road since it is not hardware based.
The specs don't list any of the bluetooth profiles. I don't think this gives any info on A2DP one way or the other.It's in the specs.

A2DP is the profile that allows high quality sound to be transmitted via bluetooth. AVRCP is the profile that allows remote control of your device via bluetooth. Check out this link for more info.So if this does not have A2DP, will bluetooth stereo headphones still work with the iPhone? Just no controlling the iPhone w the headset?
