iPhone 2.0 Falls Short

iphone 2.0 falls short no video supportI’m not gonna say sorry Steve Jobs, but I”ve established long ago that I won’t play your games. All I wanted in the second generation iPhone was 3G and video support. Well today Jobs announced a slim, 8GB iPhone with GPS, 3G and a host of 2nd party applications at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

But I’ve had a phone for two years that works on AT&T’s 3G HSDPA network and shoots video that could be immediately uploaded to the internet. The iPhone tries to be a fully operational mini computer but does not even allow for simple cutting and pasting.

Sorry fanboys and girls, this is a joke. Jobs is just working his strategy and playing consumers for tools — I can only hope he adds video support this year, but chances are it will be longer than that, in an upgraded model that would inevitably carry on the sales model of buy-an-iPhone-every year, you fools.

Now to seriously research and purchase either the Nokia N95 or Blackberry Bold 9000. Is there something else I should be looking at? Should I just stick to my LG CU500-v?

For not-such-bitter coverage of Jobs’ keynote, see: VentureBeat, Engadget, TechCrunch, NYT Bits Blog, iPhone Alley, CNET.

the helio ocean is at an attractive price point, but still — it looks like a Sidekick, and it doesn’t support video. paris and britney ruined the possibility that phones of this design would ever beb popular or tasteful again, I’m afeared.
