iPhone 3G revealed: "Improved Audio...flush headphone jack...$199 for 8GB" - Page 8

post #106 of 205
how come apple's video demonstrations always feature 40 -50 year old blokes, in glasses, in a black sweater with the sleeves pulled and not rolled up?

Talk about brave new world.

OMG, has anyone tried out the Star Wars light saber app? This application alone makes the iPhone worth it.

...Not from what I've heard:

iPhone 3G, Exclusively from AT&T and Apple - | Wireless from AT&T, formerly Cingular

- $69.99
- 450 anytime minutes
- Unlimited mobile to mobile
- Rollover
- Visual voicemail

Still not cheap by any means, but just wanted to make sure it was right.

If you're already a customer with the $29.99 plan, you can just purchase the $30 3G data plan, for a total of $59.99 per month. Right now, I have the $29.99 plus the $20 EDGE plan.

I'm still trying to decide whether to go with the 3G iPhone or give this one another year and get the 2009 model.

If your concerns are about the amp sounding good enough, the only portable amp I have to compare it with right now is the PA2V2, and it's better than that, IMO. Never tried a SuperMini, so I can't say about that. Frankly though, you sound more discriminating in your taste of amps than I, so I can't make any promises.

For portable it is all a question of compromise. I used to carry an iMod+Xin Reference but ended up selling it for 2 reasons : It was way too big to be practical (looked absolutely silly in the pocket or on the belt together with a three piece business suit) and a lot of the finer nuances that the rig could produce where simply lost due to general comute background noise even with the isolation of the Ety's. At the moment the Nano+SuperMini is extremely compact but still takes up room in the pocket when I also carry a HTC TyTN smartphone so the ideal would be if the iPhone was good enough on it's own to make me not feel I'm loosing too much in sq. Alternatively be able to use the iPhone with the SuperMini although I'm worried that radio interference will kill the SuperMini as it does not isolate well for this kind of disturbance.

Have no stock in Australia for 2-3 months as quoted by the local distributors
post #116 of 205
BTW, did anyone in Australia manage to get one? I know of some people who waited for a while and stock ran out in 20mins. They only did carry a few pre-paid models anyway

Got mine this morning and is just playing round with it now. Initial impression is that used as an iPod with my ER4-S it is not bad at all, probably at least on par with the headphone out from my 3rd gen Nano but not as good as the Nano feeding the SuperMini but probably still good enough that I can live with it for every day use. I can't test it properly with the amp since none of my docks are iPhone ready but it does not matter as radio interference gets so loud in the SuperMini as to make it useless

didn't alo made iphone line out, thats what I'm looking for to use with amp.

Yes they make a version of their docks that work with the iPhone (at least with 1st gen iPhones). Something about more pins in the dock needing to be connected. Also to switch between using the dock or not the phone needs to turned completely of and the dock attached/detached before the phone is turned on again.

The problem for me however is that since I stick the SuperMini onto the back of the player/phone the rf interference is so loud that using the amp is impossible. Ken also noted this and said that to do this you need to put the iPhone in flight mode to avoid the rf noise.

for times that phone not in use (plane, etc.) amp. could work very well this way...
