Summer's almost here and you know what that means -- time for new iPhones! For the third straight year, Apple's release of a new iPhone model has caused otherwise sane people to wait in long lines, often overnight, just to get their hands on the latest and greatest.
Today's iPhone release is the iPhone 3G S, and I got mine this morning at the Apple Store on Stockton Street near San Francisco's Union Square. Now I've put together this report chronicling my first hour or two with the device.
In this video you'll see sample video shot with the iPhone 3G S. You'll see a mysterious brown bag that may or may not have contained my lunch. You'll see demonstrations of the iPhone 3G S's speed, its compass, its Voice Control functionality, what makes it different from the iPhone 3G, and much more.
You will also witness, for the first time, the sight of what it's like for an iPhone 3G S to be unboxed -- from its perspective. And you will marvel at what happens when you peel the plastic coating off of the iPhone 3G S for the first time. (Hint: It makes things a lot clearer.)
There will be more Macworld coverage of the iPhone 3G S, including a full review, in the coming days. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this video -- as well as the many other videos we've posted about this product (see below for a list).
