The author argues that Apple's next-generation iPhone stinks. He mentioned that the device stinks as he does not own one yet. He mentioned that the primary features of the device are hardware and software, coupled with the promise that its App Store will bring new features and customization to it. He also thinks that the arrival of the iPhone 3G is sort of a doomsday for BlackBerry maker RIM and Palm.
