pocketgpsworld.comLast Friday saw the launch of the iPhone 3GS across the globe. We decided to take a plunge and go to London UK?s Apple Flagship store to get our shiny new iPhones, and also to document the day.

The queues in the Apple Store were mad. Hundreds of patient users waiting to part with hard earned cash for a new iPhone 3GS. In true Disney style Apple managed to snake the queues round to cram as many people into the store as possible. Then with military precession they were moved from staging point to staging point before finally getting to the sales guy, and getting the new iPhone.

We also took a trip to the Oxford Street Carphone Warehouse where things where a bit quieter, CPW were only selling the iPhones on 18 month O2 Contracts.

The video covers us tramping round London to find some iPhones, and also shows the quality of the new video camera in the phone. This video was taken in my car whilst in a HR iPhone mount.

First thing I have to say about the video is - I love the music! Who is it?

I have the I Phone 3G S 32gb and I love it. I upgraded from the normal 3G 16gb.

The new phone has a much better camera with a good video included. The biggest difference is the speed at which the new phone works.

Apple have made some great changes and web pages render much faster.

Also games play better and load faster. In a nutshell I can't find anything to criticize to date. I think my days with Nokia are well and truly over.

The soundtrack for the video comes from the Apple Soundtrack Pro library of royalty free loops. I have no idea who the artist or composer is.

The really big news of course is that Apple have had a change of heart and now the 3G S is called the 3GS!

Thank gawd for that, it was real PITA to type and confused the hell out of search engines.

Apple naming conventions are a little messed up with the iPhone. All other iProducts are 1G,2G etc with G standing for generation, but with 3G being the technology it gets confusing. There are even people revering to the original iPhone as the 2G...

It will be interesting to see what they call next year's product. Maybe the 4G to run on 4G wireless networks...
Shocked

Is that an iPhone related question or are you actually asking where I have been all this time? Wink

I've been quietly watching in the wings but recently have had other distractions taking up my time, mainly work! Nothing exciting I'm afraid. Groan Rolling Eyes
