iPhone Users Love the Device, but Hate Its Slowness

IPhone Users Love the Device, but Hate Its Slowness – NYTimes.com.

Here’s the reality after the hype – you may have the slickest phone but if the network is overloaded it is less useful than my 5 year old Nokia.

The iPhone is available in Thailand through True Move. They may well have a better service here than AT&T in the US because fewer people can afford one here in Thailand so their network does not get overloaded. It’s also possible to buy an unlocked iPhone (although maybe not a 3G model) here.

I’m feeling better about delaying my purchase of anything like a smart phone. The hardware is ahead of the network.

I recall at the time of the “dot com bust” how people said the industry had built too much fibre optic network capacity. Finally, nearly a decade later, it looks like we’ve found the client that needs all that bandwidth – and more.

    I bet Apple is seriously pissed off that AT&T’s network is limiting their sales, especially after this article. Maybe it will speed up their plans to partner with other network providers.
