You probably know that Apple is coming out with a new iPhone, the “iPhone 3G,” this Friday. It looks like the original iPhone. It’s actually a little thicker. It costs less to buy, but the service costs more. What’s a guy with an original iPhone to do?
Here’s what I’m going to do.
1. Download the FREE iPhone 2.0 software update on Friday July 10th. That will give my “old” iPhone new capabilities, and I’d tell you all about them here except that I don’t know what they are. Wait until Friday.
2. Fool around with the old iPhone and the new software. Maybe buy some stuff from Apple’s new “iPhone App” store, online, available via iTunes.
3. Wait for the lines to go away at the Apple store, then get the iPhone 3G.
4. Give “old” iPhone to nephew Spencer, assuming I can squeeze a few buckos out of his parents. The thing cost me $599, remember.
