Word is Apple has ramped up iPhone production to over 800,000 a week. Wow, that’s a whole lot of iPhones. Now I haven’t heard anything but I sure hope invisibleSHIELD is ramping up production as well. Why? Because having used my iPhone 2.5G for a year and jumping into the iPhone 3G yesterday… there is no question in my mind that people are going to need them.
I like the device a whole lot. The fact that it narrows at the edges makes it feel smaller and lighter than the original, even though it isn’t. The call reception is definitely better. The 3G is good when I can get a 3G signal. The GPS is dynamite! The plastic case… not so much. Sure, the plastic may improve reception (and lower production costs) but boy oh boy will this thing get scratched up in nothing flat. The math is quite simple-
Shiny Plastic + Life = Totally Scratched Up Device
I had an invisibleSHIELD on my first iPhone but with its glass screen and metal case I don’t think I really needed it. All the same, having a shield on it made me feel more confident about using, and abusing, the device. The iPhone 3G is a different story. The new plastic body is begging to be covered and protected. In fact, I think the first thing anyone with the new iPhone should do is get a permanent skin on it.
When you are just half way through your 2 year contract and drop it you’ll be thankful you did.
