NY Times’ Pogue reviews Apple iPhone 3G S: Speed boost hits you between the eyes

Buy a Mac, Get a FREE Olympus 10MP CameraApple’s brand new iPhone 3G S hits stores Friday and The New York Times’ David Pogue has his review out in anticipation.

With “the iPhone 3G S, you get twice the storage — 16 gigabytes — for the same $200 price as before. For $300, you can even buy a 32-gigabyte model, enough to hold the entire “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, the DVD extras and 75 gazillion songs,” Pogue explains.

“You can still buy last year’s model, the iPhone 3G, for $100. But find a way to afford the new one. It looks identical to last year’s iPhone, but its faster circuitry makes a huge difference. (The S stands for speed, says Apple.) If you’re used to the old iPhone, the speed boost hits you between the eyes, especially when you’re opening programs, playing games and loading Web pages,” Pogue reports.

Pogue reports, “The new iPhone doesn’t just catch up to its rivals — it vaults a year ahead of them.”

MacDailyNews Take: There’s no need for vaulting when you’re already years ahead.
