There’s something special about having new technology the day it comes out…
I spent a big chunk of last Friday waiting on a couple of lines to get my hands on the newly launched iPhone 3G.
Based on my previous unsuccessful experience of trying to get the original iPhone from an AT&T store when it launched a year ago, I decided the Apple Store was the only way to go. Being in New York, I had the luxury of three choices, and decided to head to the newest (and least known) Apple Store over on 14th Street and Ninth Avenue – in the heart of the old meat packing district.
I wanted to document the experience for this blog, so I took a video camera along to record what it’s like being part of a line at an Apple launch event. This short video captures the highlights:
The new iPhone is great, but does have a few quirks and shortcomings that I’ll tell you about in a follow-up review. (Overall, it’s still the best “Smartphone” you can buy.)
