The iPhone is here, and it makes me crazy, literally.

If you are at all interested in technology, you can’t have missed hearing about pretty much everything there is to know about it for the last week or so. I’ll leave you with some unboxing pictures, and please do tell me if there is anything you want to know or something you want me to write about. I’ll hopefully do a post with apps and accessories at some point. Tu-de-lu!

    Any book-apps for it yet? I mean, I love the big screen, it’s one of few reasons I’m interested in it at all, but the seriously closed environment sounds buggersome to me as I like to dig into a plethora of serious apps – chief among them the book-apps like Microsoft Reader and it’s alternatives.

    And I wonder about the battery-time if 3g is off. It’s not like I need it.

    … and they need some form of Opera Mini on it, seriously, because Opera Mini is win 😛

    Oh there are definitely some goodies for a book lover. First off there is a dedicated “Books” section on the app store, mind you this is for buying books, not book reading apps. A great collection from Charles Dickens and more though, priced at $1 or 6 NOK.
    From what I can find, there appears to be a whopping 2 eBooks readers available as well, and they are both free (and so are many books).

    I have not tried turning off 3G, but I don’t really see the need to. Battery life is great on this thing. Great if you consider the huge screen and all the drains like wifi, 3g, bluetooth and gps. With “normal” use it doesn’t seem to run dry any sooner than my old SonyEricsson K610 – but then you might use an iPhone a bit more than with most phones 😉

    I don’t see the point of having Opera mini on this thing, there is just no reason to scale down on a phone like this. The regular Opera Mobile would be nice though, competition is good!

    Mind taking a peek at the ebook-readers out there, if they don’t cost anything, or use your *-fu to find info about it? Google failed me right now.

    Personally I’m fond of Opera Mini because it compresses websites, down to 30%, and as such it’s alot less to download, faster to download, and you don’t need the faster connection. I’ve got a pocket pc myself, so I’ve tried a number of browsers out there. My favourite ’till today is still Opera Mini because I don’t miss 3G at all, and with the amount of net-browsing I do it saves me loads of cash, and saves battery. A lot of battery.

    I’m not much a book lover, but here are the two apps i mentioned: and

    I can understand the use of Opera Mini if you pay per the megabyte, you know, my life used to be just like that… 😛

    It’s not just the pay per megabyte, though that definately helps! 😀

    We’ll see about an iphone sometime when Netcom hits Modalen then – the final obstacle. No point having a phone you can’t call with 😛

    Hehe, ah you’re one of them 😉 I guess you got a big point there. After five days though, I’m still as excited as I was the day I got it. A rare thing indeed.
