How can you beta test an iPhone app? I can get it on my own device, and anyone that gives me a device, I can run it on theirs, but is there a way to do a limited release via the app store for beta testing?
Answer: iOS 4.0 and later: Instructions on wirelessly distributing your application to beta testers.

There's a new service out called "Test Flight", and it addresses this issue directly.
Apple has since bought TestFlight and has integrated it into iTunes Connect
