Enter alternate domains in Mobile Safari on iPhone 2.0 iOS devices
When entering a web or e-mail address in Mobile Safari, you can now tap and hold on the .com button to get a pop-up with .net, .edu, and .org. Note that you must have firmware version 2.0 for iPhone or iPod touch to make this work.

Also hold the " . " when " .com " is not available.

I can't get that to work on my 3G iPhone. Just tried it in Google Maps, for instance, as well as a few others. I can get the .com button to show more TLDs, and also the apostrophe shows me smart single quotes and a 'dumb' apostrophe

This worked with 1.1.x too.

when using UK keyboard, hold on .com and it would offer .co.uk too.

2.0 extends it to just the . key and maybe a few other places.
