Apple’s Early Days of the iPhone
Ah 2008! When Katy Perry kissed a girl and liked it, when Lady Gaga showed everyone her Poker Face, and when Flo Rida seemed very keen on getting Low. In the world of tech, this was the time when Apple made everyone sit up and take notice of its lovely new gadget: the smartphone. Okay, so the original iPhone was released in 2007. But, it wasn’t until the company’s second run at the smartphone that the idea was really taken in by the masses.
All behold the iPhone 3G. No, there was no iPhone 2. This was the second generation of iPhone, but it connected to 3G – which was a pretty big deal back then – hence, it was called the iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3G, while it certainly had its faults, was a game-changer in the industry. It showed phone users what they could really have with a phone. Sure, there were some issues sustaining battery life, there were some shaky 3G connections, and its camera didn’t capture video – but, this little beauty had a lot of things going for it.
Buying an iPhone 3G
While it may be one of the earliest models to call itself a smartphone, the iPhone 3G is still a smartphone. For users interested in buying a smartphone, the iPhone 3G could indeed be for them. It allows users to communicate, as a smartphone should. It allows users to connect to the internet, as a smartphone should. It provides a wide range of apps and features, as a smartphone should. It is worth noting that some of those apps may not be updateable to the latest versions, however.
For anyone interested in buying an iPhone 3G, there is eBay. The phone itself has been discontinued by Apple, but models are still available through eBay. Check out eBay’s options on the iPhone 3G, and compare it to the many other mobile phones available. Be sure to look into other essentials too, such as mobile phone accessories and prepaid mobile phone recharge cards.
