iPhone 3G Review and Photo Roundup
Tuesday, July 8, 2008 - 11:39 PM EST
Posted by: Brian

Some early reviews are starting to come in for the new iPhone 3G. They are from Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal, Edward Baig of USA Today, and David Pogue of the New York Times. You know, the guys that always get the cool new Apple gear before anyone else. Overall, they were impressed with the sound quality, connection speeds and new design. They also point out negatives like a decrease in battery life with 3G and GPS, and higher service costs. I also posted some links to the best iPhone 3G photos around. You can find those at the bottom of the page.

Reviews:

Wall Street Journal - Walt Mossberg writes, "If you've been waiting to buy an iPhone until it dropped in price, or ran on faster cell networks, you might want to take the plunge, if you can live with the higher service costs and the weaker battery life. The same goes for those with existing iPhones who love the device but crave faster cellular data speeds. But if you already own an iPhone, and can usually use Wi-Fi for data, you probably should hold off and get the free software upgrade before deciding whether it's worth getting the new hardware."



USA Today - Edward Baig writes, "It's cheaper, faster and a lot friendlier for business. Apple's blockbuster smartphone already had nifty features such as visual voicemail, a splendid built-in video iPod and the best mobile Web browser I've ever used. With GPS newly added to the mix, this handheld marvel has no equal among consumer-oriented smartphones."

New York Times - David Pogue writes, "So the iPhone 3G is a nice upgrade. It more than keeps pace with advancing technology, and new buyers will generally be delighted."
