Apple rumor: Launch e-mail from an iPhone note?

It seems that the Mobile Notes application in iPhone OS 3.0 is capable of detecting phone numbers, URLs, and e-mail addresses when viewing a note. Get that story and other rumors of what's cooking in Cupertino here.

According to developers poking through the latest version of the iPhone OS 3.0 beta, it seems that the Mobile Notes application in iPhone OS 3.0 is capable of detecting phone numbers, URLs, and e-mail addresses when viewing a note. Once detected, which the operating system shows by underlining the data, simply touching that item launches the corresponding Phone, Mobile Safari, or Mobile Mail application. (Source: AppleInsider)

When Apple unveiled the iPhone 3.0 OS in March , it only showed off a few of the new features that are going to arrive with the next release. Developers are being given over 1,000 new APIs to play with--allowing to them to tie their applications to parts of the iPhone's hardware in ways that were previously forbidden--and details have been trickling out ever since.
