Ultimate Ubermensch Apple Weblog on the iPhone 3G: "A lot of money for a design bump."
Considering the source, The
Ultimate Ur-Quan Apple Weblog
has posted a remarkably level-headed post on why, for some of us, there's little reason to pick up an iPhone 3G on Friday:
Other than 3G speeds and GPS, the new iPhone does not bring a lot to the table. It still has the same crappy 2 MegaPixel camera. It appears to have the same sized screen, the same speakers, the same microphone with a few cosmetic re-designs. If the speed issue isn't do-or-die for you, this is the upgrade to skip. You'll pay a lot of money for little more than a design bump.
Frankly, Apple would be foolish if they didn't have a better iPhone already in the works--one with a decent camera and other upgraded features. The 3G iPhone that goes on sale Friday, represents nothing more than last year's iPhone--that finally got delivered a year late.
Naturally, the author's being pilloried in the comments for not following TUAW's
usual policy of blind, breathless sycophantism.
