We Wants It
Maybe not as much as this guy wanted his precious, but I want it pretty bad. With so much of my life happening online, it just makes sense to get one. Some of the cool new features/specs on the iPhone 3G:
- 2.8x faster than the first generation, thanks to the switch to 3G over EDGE.
- 3rd Party Apps are getting easier to find/install. A WordPress blog one can’t be far off.
- Increased battery life.
- GPS. I’ll probably be able to Geocache with it. It also can do directions while driving, tracking your progress on Google Maps. Seth Godin theorizes what this could mean for us. Lifehacker too. Slate thinks this could be the demise of GPS-only device manufacturers.
The kicker? The phone costs $199. $199. My Verizon contract ends on Easter Sunday, 2009. Monday morning, it’s off to AT&T to get an iPhone 3G.
