iPhone 3.0 Update Now Available for Download

For those of you not Hugh, HERE is the rundown on what’s new. Let the cut & pasting finally begin!

As for the iPhone 3Gs, who’s upgrading? For Eros & Matthor, this should be a no-brainer. As for me, it’s a tough call. I’d have to spend about $200 more to do it. And while the speed jump, increased battery life and video are gonna destroy me to have to wait a year…I might just have to. It’ll kill me but I know in June 2010 I’ll be glad I did when that front facing lends allows iChat.

For those like me stuck with the 3G until they qualify for the 199/299 pricing, here’s a few good ideas on getting your hands on a 3Gs this friday from WIRED.

More from AT&T about the topics of MMS and tethering after the jump!

    I may just hold on the scratch for a bit, and then revisit the iPhone 3GS.  I mean, next summer, won’t there be an iPhone 3GX that’s even better?

    Yeah, but I can’t imagine you two even realize what having an iPhone is being reduced to the EDGE network for web browsing.  Seriously, If I were you I would be on line at the The Grove right now.  Your both eligible, and $199 is a bargain for what you’ll be getting!!!!

    Like Cybergoshy says, I’ve had the 3.0 software for a while now, and I’ve thought long and hard about my 3GS options. When it gets down to it, I’m very satisfied with the speed of my 3G, and just about everything else either comes with 3.0 or is waiting on AT&T.

    The only thing I really, really want in the 3GS is the video camera. Especially for the new kid. Had they allowed me to upgrade this year for $199, I think I would’ve pulled the trigger, but since they won’t, I really think I’m okay to wait.

    The second lens for the iChat and a physical keyboard are both things that Apple has to be working on– the former is already deep into development, if you read Engadget, and the latter is just going to make sense if they’re going to really try to destroy Blackberry.

    Plus– I’m still waiting to see if Verizon really does strike a deal with Apple to get iPhones next year. If that’s a case, it’s a no-brainer to switch over, since AT&T service in LA is atrocious.

    All that said, I’m going to wait with my 3G. But if you guys are still going on the original iPhone, I highly, highly recommend the upgrade. The price is great and even if these new features don’t grab you, you’ll really enjoy all the fun stuff that clever apps do with the GPS.

    Huzzah!
