I received my iphone 3G a week ago now. Having been an iphone 2G user I had great expectations. It was a mistake to set my iphone 3G expectations too high as it isn't much different. Its only marginally quicker (when 3G is available) and you do get the added benefit of GPRS. The GPRS could have been so much better if they added some basic sat nav functionality.
I used the iphone GPRS the other day whilst on foot in Manchester. It got really confused when the street density became high. The flashing blue blob was going in all sorts of directions other than the one I was actually going in!
Don't get me wrong I love my iPhone but if you were to ask me if the 3G was a massive step onwards from the original iphone I'd have to say no.
Oh I forgot to mention...You still can't send picture messages. Come on Apple this is as basic as it can get!
