iPhone good and bad
I think these things are going to fly off the shelves. Both AT&T and Apple stores are bracing themselves, but “appleinsider”:http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/07/06/18/iphone_battery_life_virtual_keyboard_concern_early_testers.html does give a list of the issues. The two main ones are short battery life. More like 5 hours of talk time. Not clear if that is in addition to video battery life (that is can you watch the Matrix and still make a call). Also the big one IMHO is what it will really be like without a keyboard for Blackberry like typing.
Personally, I’m going to get both. Just got a Blackberry Curve. They are $350 without subsidy from AT&T or $200 with a 2 year contract. For me, the $350 is quite reasonable price to not get locked in. Of course they have to actually honor the rebate of $100, so we’ll see 🙂
Now I need a good stereo bluetooth headset and a 1GB miniSD card.
On a related note, some analysts think that Apple’s home market share is up to 7.6%. Remarkable if true. Certainly, my three recent visits to the Apple stores show them just flying off the shelves. Particularly now that everyone has a Core Duo 2 processor set.
