Goodbye iPhone 3G!

Hello iPhone 4!


My new assistant

This one is considerably faster and thanks to the Retina display, the images are crisper and sharper compared to its predecessors. It takes also decent pictures and records video in HD. The only thing is, I wish had the white one but since Apple is having problems with production, black iPhones were the only ones available. So far I haven’t encountered the problems with the antenna performance but I ordered the free bumper just in case. Again, the only available colour was black. Geez! Oh well, as Henry Ford said “Any customer can have a car painted any colour he wants so long as it is black.”

In fairness to my iPhone 3G, it served me well and I would have kept it probably for another year had I not upgraded the operating system to iOS4. Right after installing the new system, the phone was rendered useless. Well, pretty much. It became so slow and sluggish that answering a call or sending a text message was an ordeal.

Here’s a comical video clip that shows what I’m talking about. It’s poking fun at the iPhone commercial but it’s really how it is after installing the new OS.

There’s definitely a lot more features I have to play with and explore in this new iPhone. For now I’m just gonna pay respect to my old iPhone 3G one last time.

    Congratulations! I want to get one too but the waitlist here in Norway is long. Ulk.

      Thanks M! Oh, it was a mayhem here during the launch. We were lucky enough to get them directly from the Apple store but the line-up was still long. I’m sure it won’t be long for the new stock to arrive.
