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.

  1. Over 23,000 signatures have been collected for Mexico’s very own iPhone petition. Telcel’s 3 plans include a mere 100-200 MB of Data, and if you go over they charge you around $4 dollars per megabyte. The so called Unlimited Plan switches to the slower 128Kbps network when you reach 3 GB; not such a great deal at $140 dollars per month.

    We need to get the international media’s attention. See for yourself at

    Wow. These prices are insanely high. Even if you are eligible for the 199/299 prices, you are going to be paying unbelievable amounts per month. The old iPhone is/was $20/month for unlimited data and 200 texts, and this one is $35/month for the same thing. That’s $360 difference over two years. At every price level, AT&T has raised the prices (for 1500 texts, you are paying an additional $5 than what it was before)…. and thats just data and texts. Well, I found this one from the clash,Jobs unveiling the new iPhone. You can see it in Steve Jobs & Apple’s iPhone 3G.

  3. 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…
