The iPhone 3G is out. Apple sells it as twice as fast half the price. Indeed, it looks pretty cool.
Some interesting related news:
- The NYT writes that New iPhone Pricing Model Is a Step Backward for Consumers since by subsidizing the cost of the new iPhone and locking customers into a two-year contract, AT&T is returning to a more traditional U.S. pricing model for cellphones.
- Apple has replaced .Mac with MobileMe. There is also an open source implementation, Funanbol that does many of the same things.
- From the NYT, Take That, Google: No Ads From Apple. Apple is showing new ways for the iPhone to check news, sports and e-mail. But it appears to be willing to ask users to pay fees to do so rather than subsidizing content and services with advertising.
