iPhone 3G

June 9th, 2008 No comments

On the whole, I’m pretty disappointed with it. Hardware wise, it’s finally caught up to the Blackjack II. Same crappy camera, and no added screen resolution. No mention of video recording capability either. At least they finally added a GPS. I would’ve liked to see a front facing camera and a sooner release date. And I’m not sure how much I believe the battery life claims.

To meet that price point around the world, surely the phone must be subsidized. That means theres an unlock to come.

So who can get me one before July 11? I’ll make good use of it…
