the iPhone 3g eagle is circling and ready to land in NZ on July 7th

Vodafone , and Apple today announced that the iPhone 3G will be available in Australia, Italy, New Zealand and Portugal on July 11. Later in the year the Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, India, South Africa and Turkey follow suite.

iPhone 3G is reported to be twice fast as the first generation iPhone. It has inbuilt GPS and iPhone 2.0 software. Among other new features it fills an existing gap by connecting to Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync as well as running the hundreds of third party applications in production by third parity developers using the Phone SDK. [software development kit]

How to get one in NZ
You cant pre- order in New Zealand. It will sell out in days - depend on it. However, you can pre-register. I'm told the address to keep checking is here

What's the fuss?
Speaking as someone how has only used the iTouch I can safely say I will be first in line to pre-register.
This is a genuine inflection point. Plain and simple, it puts the Internet in your pocket Cruising web sites is a dream - and you read text documents with ease. I've tried both. It's true.

It also plays your music - seamlessly syncs pod casts - screens movies, offers online mapping, and checks your email. With the Microsoft Exchange trick now on board, it can also give BlackBerry a serious run for its money. Oh and yes, it makes phone calls.

None of this sounds all that revolutionary - but believe me , the touch navigation makes all the difference - You really are in charge of this little puppy.

End of rave - I need to start saving - because believe me, there will be no freebies on this launch. Hard cash all the way.

If you are also displeased, feel free to add your voice to the lot. Hopefully everyone piping up will get Vodafone to see the light.

but it is not by the biggest UK Replica watches and baddest product that a brand is defined.Consider some of the most well-recognised watches in Replica Rolex Watches the world: the Rolex Submariner (£5,000), the Cartier Tank (£3,300), and the Designer handbags?Speedmaster (£3,000). These have come to represent entire categories and drive the whole business; yet none of Replica Rolex watches these timepieces broaches £10,000.It is my hope that we will soon start to Watches Replica.
