iPhone 3GS: still the best?

The third coming of the Jesus phone has come at last, with the masses in their millions saying hallelujah for the much faster and smoother iPhone experience, but while trouble in paradise has ensued with reports of overheating and bugs in iPhone OS 3.0, no-one has yet properly copied the iPhone, let alone surpassed it.

As predicted, iPhone 3G S pricing from Vodafone is virtually identical to the pricing it unveiled for the HTC Magic Google Android phone earlier this month, at $0 upfront on a range of plans including unlimited voice and the happy surprise of fee-free tethering in contrast to Optus. What are the details?

Although the iPhone 3G S launched with US dollar pricing known before the keynote was over, Australian telcos are making us wait on finding out exactly what an iPhone 3G S will cost to buy outright, upgrade to or have to pay per month on a 24 month contract - should we expect any surprises?

Not bad, for Palm… but is it enough?

The new iPhone 3G S is due on the 26th of June, but we’re already wanting more, so here’s our list of feature demands for the future 2010 iPhone 4.0!

We’re yet to see whether iPhone OS 3.0 launches for download in a few hours time, along with a new iPhone itself, or if both will be delayed, but the iPhone Dev Team has warned against rogue downloads promising yellowsnow updates, fake 3.0 unlocks and even upgrading to iTunes 8.2 itself.

Months after the “Blackberry-esque” Nokia E71 launched for 2100MHz 3.5G networks, Telstra has finally brought an 850MHz “Next G” capable model to market for its customers – but where’s a Next G capable Nokia E75?
