After this weekend, I’ll be relinquishing the new 3G iPhone to the rest of the Shiftworkers, for it’s actual purpose: development testing for mobile web sites and apps.

I was the first in line at Auckland’s Queen St Vodafone store on Friday morning. I know the hardcore were there for the 12:01 opening, but I was happier to queue in double-digit temperatures.

It’s about the complete user experience. And importantly, I’m actually not talking about the experience of the phone. Let […]
