iPhone 3GS Launch – What Others Are Saying

18 06 2009

Well, the weather outside may be brutal, but so far me and the rest of the iLife crew have managed to hang in there.


While we’ve braved the elements, a few people have come up to ask us a few questions, including Engadget, CNN, Reuters, the New York Times, and Bloomberg. I’ll be posting links to their coverage of the iPhone 3GS launch, and well, us!

Why exactly are you waiting in line for something where:

Supply > Demand

Besides the CPU / Memory, its not even that great of an upgrade, the rest of the smartphone world had had more than 2MP cameras, video, copy + paste, tethering.

I hope you guys are staying dry up there. Here in Atlanta, it is just plain hot and I do not think anyone is waiting in line here. But I bet later on tonight, they just might! I vote that Apple give each of you a free iPhone for the good publicity!! Hope you guys are having a blast. I am sure you are 😉

Howdy from Austin, Texas! I was trying to get some sleep, but can’t. I have the original iPhone and remember how exciting it was standing in line, while this one I admit is not nearly as exciting, since I know more of what to expect, I still feel like a kid. Hope yall have fun out there and hope it stops raining!
