Take screenshots with iPhone 2.0 software iOS devices
Running the new iPhone 2.0 software? Want to grab a screenshot of something? Turns out it's amazingly easy. Hold the Home button down, then tap the power button on the top of the phone. The screen will flash white, and that's it -- the screenshot has been taken.

Open your iPhone's Photos app, and you'll see the just-taken photo in your image library. This works amazingly well, and it's nice to see a factory-bundled solution for those of us who write about the iPhone!

Power corrupts. PowerPoint corrupts absolutely.

Seems this existed in previous version by holding home and toggling the silence switch.

Didn't work for me with any combination of holding the home button and toggling or pressing buttons w/ 1.1.4.

Does this only work on the iPhone because of the camera? Or would it work on an iPod Touch also?

On the Touch the screenshot facility puts them straight into a photo gallery called Saved Photo's.
