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.
