Let's have a look at Iphone 3GS's selling points, according to the article:
- It can send and receive MMS.
- It's got bluetooth.
- It's fitted with a 3 megapixel camera, without flash.
- It's got a compass.
- You can copy and paste text from for example an e-mail.
- It's got support for the Swedish special characters ÅÄÖ (although the keyboard is "still hard to use").
All these new "features" are really the bare minimum you would expect from even the cheapest cell phone sold in the last 2-3 years, possibly with the exception of a compass. On the other hand, when have you ever been in a situation where you thought "damn, I really wish my phone had a compass"?
Why on earth should I literally pay through my nose for yesterday's news, when I could get a state of the art phone for almost half the price, and at the same time avoid the infamous Apple lock-in effect and the AppStore censorship madness?
