Confession: aside from typing in "are you Skynet" and "do my taxes" I'm not quite sure how to use this new beastie, but if you're smart enough to query up an answer to "what's the second coolest smartphone, BlackBerry or Palm Pre?", let us know your results!
Yeah. Ouch. But that's what BGR's Canadian ninja are reporting. These are Best Buy inventory prices, but it's hard to imagine Rogers/Fido stores charging less what with the exchange rate and typically Canadian shipping overages added.
Any Canadians (besides me) lining up for an off-contract iPhone 3G S this Friday? Does the price change things? How about those of you getting the full subsidy? Happier now?
PCalc developer James Thomson is one of our favorites because he not only makes great apps, but he seems to love doing it, and always figures out new, positive, and productive ways to get our attention.
I woke up this morning to an email from Apple -- my iPhone 3G S has shipped! A quick look at the tracking information via the UPS website shows that it has been shipped from Shenzhen China to arrive at my home by the 19th at the latest.
Something important to remember, if you did order from Apple and will not be home at the time of the delivery - you must fill out a form via Apple's web site for them to leave it at your door if you'd like you device left for you. If not you will be waiting until Monday and that would make for a long weekend.
So far we have had no confirmation regarding phones shipping from AT&T. Any other AT&T customers receive a shipping notification yet?
No, downloading and installing it on your iPhone 2G won't magically give it a better camera, video recording, or unicorn tear-powered 2x speed. (It will most likely give you heartache -- never mix and match firmware!) but MacRumors forum has already found iPhone OS 3.0 for iPhone hardware 2,1 lingering about Apple.com.
(We're betting it's waiting in line for the hardware -- curse those pre-order limits!)
