A Better iPhone

I don’t think I’ll be buying a new iPhone in July, largely due to what we know of AT&T’s rate plans (the reasonable monthly fee for the original iPhone factored heavily into my decision to buy one on launch day).

But, I will still have a better iPhone. That’s the cool — and so far as I know, unique* — thing about it. It actually gets better over time, as Apple improves the software.

* I did once have a phone that ran Palm OS; it’s possible that I upgraded that at one point but I can’t recall. Certainly it wasn’t as significant an upgrade as iPhone OS 2.0.

How Can iSuppli Know?

Kind of amazing to see cost estimates for the 3G iPhone when it’s still 2 1/2 weeks away from release… Wouldn’t it make more sense to actually look inside a shipping unit before spouting off about what it’s made from?
