iPhone 3G

Well, it sure was an interesting day for those following the unveiling of Apple’s newest smartphone. 3G. AGPS. USD $200 on a two-year contract (8G model). 300 hours of standby time, 8-10 hours of 2G talk time, 5 hours of 3G talk time, 7 hours of video time and 24 hours of audio time. Our sister sites, QuicklyBored and SmartPhoneCool have been all over the coverage today; here are the links to some interesting posts:

    If only it wasn’t on ATT.

    You left out the info on “exchange for the rest of us.”

    Mobile me is the way to go for iphone users to sync calendars, email, and contacts on the iphone without depending on RIM or MS exchange.

    This is what disappoints me. Apple has been in the smartphone industry for a year and they are quickly surpassing RIM’s technology. I love my Blackberry Pearl, but for cheaper I could have a faster, more capable phone. If it wasn’t for AT&T.

    I think the aggressive price point is great, but as far as I’m concerned, it still has no tactile keyboard, and so Bold will be my next phone..
    That and all the “features” developed for the iphone can be seen in some form on the bb, and iphone still has no video recording, mms, or even cutting and pasting?

    Not to mention the pricing isn’t all that agressive. $200 for the base model on a 2 year contract isn’t so special.

    Also they will not be selling them without a contract.

    I shudder to think of the ridiculous contract stipulations Rogers probably has up it’s sleeve.

    I’ve been using a BB since the RIM 850. But if Rogers offers this thing with anything approaching an AT&T style unlimited plan, I’m switching to an iPhone.

    The iPhone does look like a sweet machine, but I’m just not convinced of it’s ‘business pedigree’. I don’t think Jobs is aiming at business either.
