iPhone 3G S outsells iPhone 3G on launch day, according to O2

image O2 are claiming that the iPhone 3G S is outselling the iPhone 3G on launch day which we find a little hard to believe due to the high price and lack of a decent upgrade option from O2 for current iPhone 3G subscribers. The lines and interest do not seem to match the frenzy that we saw last year but that could be down to more stock being available or a lot more buyers deciding to do their business online this year, who knows, but the Carphone Warehouse are totally out of stock online.

The full press release from O2 is after the break giving all the spin facts.

Stephen Fry reviews the iPhone 3G S

image Stephen Fry has penned a very interesting review of the iPhone 3G S Stephen is very much a smartphone fan and he sums up the iPhone 3G S as the M Series BMW of smartphones:-

In short, the iPhone 3GS is triumphantly the product of a company at the absolute top of their game. If it were a BMW it would badged as the ‘M’ version – the same but with added poke and better spec. Power and performance can be considered a luxury until you try them and realise how much more functionality, ease of use and productivity they can deliver. Cost is a whole other issue: if you already have an iPhone 3G you may find an upgrade expensive. Could be worth waiting to see what deals emerge over the next month or so. The more people who do wait, the more pressure there will be on O2 to lower prices.

iPhone 3GS my story and first impressions

IMG_0172 Yes I know I said I wasn’t going to get one after the debacle of O2 upgrades and the high pricing, but look I am a geek ok, it knawed away at me day and night until I could resist no more. I ebayed my iPhone 3G and posted it off with a tearful fairwell yesterday morning.

I put the SIM card in a Windows Mobile device and have used it for the last 24 hours, it was hard work, believe me.

Carphone Warehouse told me on Thursday that they would be selling the iPhone 3GS on Pay as you go, ie no contract commitment from 9.02am on Friday morning so that was my plan.

This morning I set off for the Carphone Warehouse Kingston Park near Newcastle and arrived at 8.32am and there was no one standing in line, last year I was there at 6.30am and was no4 so all was looking good. At 9.00am they opened the doors and Emma informed me that Carphone Warehouse would not be offering a Pay as you go iPhone 3GS for a few weeks. I was sick, and boy did she know it :), I hot footed it down to Team Valley O2 store and found a huge queue, mission aborted.
