This is my Father’s Day gift from my wonderful wife and two lovely daughters.
Gillian upgraded her first generation iPhone to the 3GS, wrapped it up and the girls gave it to me this morning, along with a brilliant home-made card. She now has my one-year-old iPhone 3G along with my wonder and gratitude.
The new phone is very fast and the touch-to-focus camera is fantastic. When I read the specs on the 3GS I was a little bit underwhelmed but having it in my hand really made me appreciate what Apple have achieved: an extremely responsive device which can take great photos and videos, render web pages a lot faster than anything else in the mobile space, track your run with the built-in Nike+ capability, be controlled with voice commands, and a lot more. The innovations also extend to the charger design. Here’s the new charger on the left and the old one on the right:
And yes, I am incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful family.
