iPhone 4 Launched In More Places… And I Tried One

Yesterday brought the arrival of the iPhone 4  to more places including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. In many places such as Canada, people lined up for hours for one. I’m going to assume that “antennagate” clearly hasn’t had an effect on demand. My “best friends at Rogers” let me know about a post on Redboard that describes their plans for the iPhone including the return of the 6GB/$30 plan that appeared after the “circus” that was part of their original iPhone launch.

On another note, I tried a 16GB iPhone 4 this week while I was in the United States and my impressions are as follows:

  • The feel and the construction is top notch.
  • The display is amazing
  • The quality of the pictures from the camera is stunning
  • The speed of the iOS on the phone makes it more than usable.

Now here’s the downside, I could replicate the antenna issues rather easily. In fact, the Blackberry Bold 9000 that I currently own as well as a Droid X that I had borrowed to compare didn’t do this nearly as easily as the iPhone 4 did. So the antenna issue with this phone do exist. It would be in Apple’s best interests to sort that out rather than point fingers at others.

Have you just got an iPhone? Post a comment and let us know what you think?
