Here it comes: iPhone 3G

July 5, 2008

I am sure you have all read about the new iPhone 3G and what it brings (or not) to the world of mobile phones.

Frankly I am a bit disappointed from the enhancements of the new iPhone (but it is better to have a 3G capability then not). I am still scratching my head understanding why can’t Apple make the iPhone be used as a modem? Oh well.

In my opinion the biggest addition is the app store. This is the new cash cow for Apple. Write your application and split the cash with us. Very creative move by Apple. I anticipate that GPS applications and Games will be the number 1 hit for the App store (or at least this is what I will be looking for).

The other part relates to how you get your hands on the phone and how much is this going to cost you. As a loyal citizen of Apple I had bought the first generation iPhone when it cost 600 USD (Steve, where is my other 100USD?). Now I need to put 300 USD more just to get committed to AT&T again for 2-years.

Go figure.

This time I might wait a bit to hear whether the new iPhone is really that much of a change or whether it is just a nice enhancement.
