It’s clear that Apple told the major media today was the day that it was OK to talk about the iPhone 3G: Walt Mossberg, Edward Baig, and David Pogue are all out with major hands-on reviews. The general consensus seems to be that it’s a nice piece of equipment, and an improvement over the original, but still with some compromises – and hardly a “must have” bit of hardware.
To be honest, we haven’t seen a groundswell of iPhone interest from you readers either, even though mobile technology is one of the key interests of web workers. Is it the cost (check out BillShrink for a plan comparison)? The design compromises? The fact that you’re perfectly satisfied with your existing communications devices? Or are you really interested, and we’ve just not been listening hard enough?
Here’s your change to weigh in on the iPhone 3G, just before the launch. If you’re planning to rush right out on Friday and buy one, we’d love to hear about it. If you’d like us to start covering iPhone software, that would be great to know too. But on the other hand, if there have already been too many iPhone stories on Web Worker Daily, and you want us to let it be, tell us that too!
And while you’re making your opinions known, take a moment to click over to our parent site GigaOM and take their quick one-question iPhone 3G survey as well. Thanks!
