iPhone 3G 16GB

The iPhone 3G is a stylish looking piece of hi tech gadget, the touch screen interface has just been a breeze to use. Dragging and pinching to zoom in and two finger taps to zoom out its about time someone developed this thing. The keyboard that shows up was a bit annoying because when your on the move and you have fat fingers you will get pretty annoyed and can make calling someone a hazardous task. Google maps incorporated with gps(sdk)came in handy this thing can find you wherever you are providing that your 3G coverage is good. Its not really meant for turn by turn directions so what will that mean for the rumored Tom Tom GPS application thats meant to be coming out soon? Like the iPod touch you can only transfer movies photos application and games to it by using iTunes which can annoy but I'm sure we are all used to it by now unless you decide to mess around with hacking the thing. The photo application it uses to take pictures with its 2 megapixel camera doesnt allow me to zoom in...wierd but it takes not bad pictures if you have proper lighting. I downloaded AirMe which allowed me to take a picture of something and upload it directly to Facebook which was cool, there are many applications but not many good ones so far. Now the Exchange server push side of things was not bad as opposed to some complaints I've heard about. I had no problems accessing the company emails, calendar and contacts. Battery life was average which is what you'd expect when you keep playing with it, I heard somewhere that the 8GB has a better battery life but I don't know if thats true or not. So anyway who cares if it's not the best performing device out there but it sure looks good so Just Buy One anyway
