In Australia nobody wants the white iPhone

Apple iPhone 3G’s with new white boxes being stocked in AT&T store
In Australia at least, nobody seems to want the white iPhone? It looks like all of the late arrivals in Sydney were being told earlier that they might have to take a white 16GB version because they were running out of the black model.

Now, if the same thing happens here I imagine some of you are going to be not too happy about it and you’d rather have no iPhone at all. I wouldn’t want white. White is for Wiis. I’m not sure what the ratio of white to black iPhones being shipped to stores is, but judging by this video we showed you here, it looks to be about 50/50. If that’s the case, we have a problem.

iPhone 3G taken apart, battery kinda replaceable

iPhone 3G taken apart
The folks over at iFixit didn’t waste any time taking apart their new iPhone 3G after the launch in New Zealand. They found some interesting things.

Most notably that the battery wasn’t soldered in place. They also discovered that the LCD and glass covering weren’t glued together as they were previously. Hit the link for more details. Though people are calling the battery “somewhat” replaceable, I’d say that the fact that it’s not soldered makes it pretty damn replaceable in my book.

3G iPhone will be available at Best Buy & Radio Shack
Apparently, the new iPhone won’t just be available in Apple and AT&T stores, but the 3G iPhone will also be available at other places like Best Buy and Radio Shack. Obviously it makes sense and makes it easier for consumers to spend their money. Many would say that it’s about time too.

The iPhone is scheduled to come out by the 11th of this month, but there are some details we just don’t have yet. These stores may not have the iPhone on the first day if Apple wants to be all “Apple stores first”. Either way, it just doesn’t pay to wait in line. Just relax. Take a deep breath. You’ll get one.

Crazy iPhone 3G line forms in NYC

Crazy iPhone 3G line forms in NYC
The supply is expected to be plentiful, nevertheless a line has already begun outside of Apple’s Fifth Avenue retail store to buy iPhone 3G a week before its release. These people are serious and have their supplies for camping. Wouldn’t it be nicer to stay at home with your families?

Part of the line is occupied by some activists known as “Waiting for Apples” who are hoping to set a Guinness World Record and spread the word about sustainable agriculture. They brought their own solar-power generator, yoga mats, a compost bin full of worms, and probably other hippie essentials. Personally, I can’t think of a better way to spend a week then sitting on my ass next to these guys. Yeah, that would just be awesome…

In case you haven’t noticed, Apple has a new phone. Something about an iPhone 3G something or other. The question is, will you be getting one? We want to hear from you. Yay or nay? Or could you care less? And is Steve Jobs alright? He was looking a little thinner then usual.

Apple iPhone 3G in black or whiteSteve Jobs and Apple officially announced the new iPhone 3G today set to ship July 11, Shortly after the 2nd version of the popular mobile handset appeared on the Apple Store giving some long-awaited answers and putting many rumors to bed about the changes to the iPhone.

Lots of applications and lots of games were highlights of the presentation today for the iPhone, showing off what can be done and what has been done with the iPhone SDK. Also included in this model is GPS mapping, support for more business-centric applications like Microsoft Exchange and of course the faster 3G wireless connection. Based on these features it’s very apparent that Apple was listening to requests and complaints after the launch of the original iPhone. Major issues like a maps with no GPS and an internet browser with too slow of a connection to use are no longer, or at least much less of an issue.
