Sid's Lists: iPhone 3GS
After having owned the first-gen iPhone for almost 2 years now, I decided it was time for an upgrade and purchased a iPhone 3GS (white) from Apple’s online store. Having owned and tested it for the last two hours, a few thoughts: Definitely worth the upgrade. It feels like Apple’s learnt some things from the first-gen and used that to make a more solid, finished product. As a...
