We know, we know, it's just a week away. But this round of rumored specs for the 3G iPhone comes via Leander Kahney who has deep tentacles in Apple, and should have a solid source BS detector. The two most salient points are that it's 22 percent thinner (mighty specific, but goes against "it'll be thicker" tide) and will be subsidized to hit $200 (backing oft-wrong Kevin Rose's latest blurb). Otherwise mostly standard checklist: 3G, GPS, more storage (16GB and 32GB), better battery life (though prolly not w/ 3G or GPS on). One more week. [Cult of Mac]
I've become interested in tethering, and it would be nice if the 3G iPhone could become an extension of someone's laptop and create a mobile hot-spot for those not sporting EVDO cards and the like.
On second thought, I should probably stay away from that technology, since we humans are evolving into silent, key-stroking lurkers. Oh Giz, what hath thou done...eth to me?
