WWDC Announcements: Smule’s Ge Wang and Twitterers Respond

We had a chance to talk to Dr. Ge Wang of Smule, makers of iPhone apps Ocarina and Leaf Trombone: World Stage. He, and some of our Twitter followers, share their thoughts about the new hardware and software announcements.

With our Twitter followers, we asked for their reaction and it was definitely a mixed bag.

Our question: What are your reactions to the new hardware announcements? What are the game changers?

mattbdunn: ipod touch still $400 for 32Gb when u can pay $300 for a 32Gb 3GS iphone! Where’s the 64Gb touch? No one will b buying those
odaynasser: they flopped big time
KevYocha: as an ATT customer lack of tethering and MMS is unforgivable. The update seems great for anyone else. My 3G is new too :(
vicener: Frankly I was a bit disappointed with the iPhone 3Gs, but I am looking forward to OSX Snow Leopard and iPhone OS 3.0
bonxtivalis: Zzzzz…
ryan_doughty: New hardware is fine, For me it will be the prices and tariffs on O2 UK that could make or break this as my next phone.
freddytaul: new iphone and MB pros def stole the show. great new options and prices on the MBP’s. my ibook might be headed out.
mmccl267: pretty lame that AT&T doesn’t support tethering. Any hope that they will change that?
andreaguiar: machine hardware = excellent news + $. new iphone is nice but I think it could have used a bit more new features (3mp only?)
askbal: I am surprised no Video in the firmware upgrade for 3G. Probably just for a feature differentiation with new 3GS?
mike20: apathy and none, in that order, lol! #wwdc
cmdotkom: I am really liking the sound of the new MacBook Pro line. I need a computer for work and will look into it as an option.
decti: still no 13″ mb with 1440 resolution == sucks

And my favorite:
aaroncflores: @theappleblog will the Dev Team have jail break ready by the 17th?

What do you think about today’s announcements?
