iPhone Features I’d Like to See – Part 2

March 24th, 2008 · No Comments · Phones

Continuing on with the features I’d like to see on the iPhone.

3G network.

Let’s face it, using AT&T’s Edge network to surf the web just sucks. Not unlike going to the bad old days of the modem (vs. today’s broadband). AT&T already offers 3G access, so availability is not an issue.

This gets a little tricky, though. Current 3G chips suck a lot of power – the iPhone’s battery life is already a weak point. Burdening it with 3G would make battery life completely unacceptable.

The good news is that new 3G chips are much less power hungry – in addition, one can assume that battery technology and battery life will improve over time.

Rumors also seem to indicate that a 3G-ready iPhone will come sometime this year.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
