iPhone 3G

My childhood dreams of a communicator/tricorder gizmo have finally been fulfilled ๐Ÿ™‚

Activation was a snap. I was lucky that one of the stores in town got a shipment of 20 black 16GB phones in this morning via FedEx. They had sold out completely over the weekend (maybe on Friday) and most people are paying in advance and waiting (possibly 7-10 days) to get theirs. Rumor is that Apple sold 500k over the weekend and that they are making 100k per day in their factories in China.

It’s actually not that much more functional than the HTC smartphone I’ve been using for 2 years, but it’s much more aesthetically pleasing. Once developers get cranking on new iPhone Apps I think we’ll see some amazing stuff — especially using the built-in GPS.

At foo camp people were really jazzed about Android (the new Google handset operating system), which is totally open. HTC, a gritty Taiwanese company, will be the first out with an Android phone. It’s gotta be better than Windows Mobile ๐Ÿ™‚
