The iphone 3g hardware is pants - but the platform (iphone 2.0) looks
interesting. I think this hardware is a "placeholder" to get the
platform up and running. The really nice stuff will use PA produced
chips. (Likely future use of the PA chips is indicated by a throwaway
line from Jobs quoted at second hand on the Register.)
This is quite interesting.
Apple uses software to drive hardware - always had done. In the short
term it may tank, but in the medium to long term it will do well.
