iPhone 3G S

POSTED BY DANNY CHOO On Tue 2009/06/09 02:31 JST in Gadgets

Fresh from the WWDC 2009.
iPhone 3G S - instant get for me. Have been waiting for a 32GB version and now its here. Due out on either the 19th or 26th June in Japan - I hear conflicting news.
I'm working with a small team to bring you a few dannychoo.com apps too. If the first one is ready by this week then hopefully we can announce it at a press gathering at one of the Apple stores at the end of this month.
Low down on the 3G S below. looking forward to snapping daily life in Tokyo with instant uploading to the Internets.

As for Snow Leopard - probably not an instant get. Will likely break our development environments.

MacBook Pro? Nice to see that there is a 13" option now but am happy with my Dell Mini 9+Leopard as a light weight machine. My old MacBook Pro still does not sleep properly though which is annoying.

Safari 4? Been using Beta from time to time. Would like to switch from Firefox due to the increased speed but cant live without my Firefox developer extensions.

Any new acquisitions for you from this WWDC?
