iPhone 3G: the full review

07/13, 10:15pm

iPhone 3G Review

As tremendous as the original iPhone's impact was, the iPhone 3G is arguably Apple's most important iPhone ever: it not only has to fix as many of the first-run problems as possible but also represent Apple in new but notoriously unforgiving markets such as Japan. With that kind of burden on its shoulders, the company is in the unenviable position of trying to please everyone on just its second try. Our full review of the iPhone 3G shows that Apple has come a long way in just a year and has one of its best products yet, but also that it still has a ways to go -- and has made a few sacrifices to overcome its earlier hurdles.

BBerry Thunder Real Photos

Research in Motion's BlackBerry Thunder touchscreen phone has at last been shown in real-world photography, courtesy of a leak by Crackberry. The device is identical to user guide drawings and other escaped images and is dominated by its touch display; four buttons underneath let RIM hide many extra software functions in menus rather than having to expose them with always-on visible buttons, as with the iPhone. The design should allow the Canadian company to implement its first touch interface without alienating most existing users.

Xbox 360 Pro 60GB

Microsoft today preceded E3 by announcing its anticipated 60GB Xbox 360 Pro, tripling the storage of the game console. The extra space is said to be necessary for the extra amount of content owners have been likely to store since the system's launch, which includes not just larger game demos and Xbox Live Arcade games but also the ability to hold more TV shows and to rent HD movies without having to clear space. The Pro is otherwise unchanged and includes a wireless gamepad and a wired headset along with the HDMI video output that was added to the normal video port last year.

Yahoo turns down Microsoft/Icahn search bid

Yahoo Declines MS Icahn

Yahoo late Saturday revealed that it has rejected a purportedly aggressive joint bid proposed by Microsoft and investor Carl Icahn. The deal would have seen both the Windows developer and Icahn buy Yahoo's search business and significantly restructure Yahoo to potentially improve its remaining businesses, including the replacement of the board of directors with Icahn's own slate and remove the "top management team" at the company, which most observers believe would include Yahoo chief Jerry Yang as well as others known to have opposed any of Microsoft's earlier offers for takeovers and partial buyouts.
