For once, the FedEx guy showed up right on time. Here it is — the unboxed pics of the new iPhone 3G. More thoughts to follow later. I guess I am lucky in a way because I didn’t have to deal with lines or deal with the activation process. The activation servers are down, thanks to an incredible rush to buy this phone. Apparently it is getting sold out across the world. If you are at an Apple store and want to send us photos or stream a Qik video, let me know and we can plug you in. My thoughts on the phone will appear over the weekend after I have actually had some time to play around with it. In the meantime, NewTeeVee has a look at the video-related iPhone apps and Earth2Tech has a round-up of apps that can help to save gas.

  2. Om, thanks for the unboxing… looking forward to some real world reviews – especially about the GPS accuracy and overall performance.

    It’s amazing how similar the HTC Touch is – right down to the anthracite colored box…
