Reported by Gizmodo according to Fortune, a $199 3G thinner and lighter iPhone is coming this summer. Apparently it’s been just around the corner, and according to Walt Mossberg, we’re no more than 5 weeks away.
Whatever the price, I’ve been planning to buy the 3G version since I’m now out of contract and stuck with a company that just isn’t innovating (Palm).
It’s easy enough to dismiss the iPhone based on its shortfalls, the worst of which is the lack of a tactile keyboard. I do wish they would fix it or make it easier to do workarounds. As I’ve said before, I’m on board with the Mac. But the godphone is a really great device, and hopefully I’ll be on board with the legions soon enough.
