iPhone Battery Falls Down on the Job

There is no better smartphone on the market for non-business use. Period.

There. I've said it. For everyone who thinks I have something against the iPhone, the iPhone 3G or Apple (AAPL) -- you are absolutely wrong. I think this is the ultimate smartphone design for nearly anybody and everybody on this planet.

The new iPhone is still simple to master, easy to use and puts every other smartphone to shame.

The new Apple "App Store," where you can download small new mini-programs for free (and sometimes for small fees), is wonderful. Web browsing on the iPhone is still the best portable Internet experience around. The new GPS/location-finding features are slick.

Overall, I think the iPhone 3G comes closest to the perfect non-enterprise smartphone than any other device today. And don't just take my word for it. You can read any number of excellent reviews and blogs telling you about all the neat things the 3G can do.

iPhone the Ultimate Smartphone

I tried to buy a 3G at five different stores in three different states this weekend. Forgetaboutit. The shortest line I could find was three to four hours to get into the store. At King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania, Saturday night, there was a two-hour-long line to get into the store -- and only one hour until the store was supposed to close. People leaving the stores told horror stories about long waits to get the phones up and running on AT&T (T). Hopefully, within a few days, all of that will all be history.
