I was holding out to see how the original silverback iPhone would be with the new geolocation services. Turns out it’s really very good! On the drive from home I was using Loopt (a new app from the AppStore) to check for accuracy and was VERY impressed with how well it tracked me on the drive in to work.
So, the iPhone 2.0 firmware upgrade is SO good it cut the legs out from under my reasons to upgrade to the 3G. I’m not such a bandwidth consumer that I need the marginally more expensive ‘fast’ connect speed or the additional storage.
Now, one of these days, when Apple gets with the program and does a video upgrade to the phone… sure. I see absolutely no need or justification to pony up from the 8Gb original iPhone I’m toting to the new gear.
That said, tell me why YOU upgrade from your silverback iPhone to the 3G? Newest and coolest? Connect speed? Storage? The flush headphone connection? Better power management/battery life?
