Apple Rocks! iPhone 2.0 a welcome upgrade

I didn’t quite realize until now how great the 2.0 upgrade will be for Original iPhones. It’s like getting a new device… for free. (Of course, you could always jailbreak your iPhone and get lots of Apps that way… but still, it’s pretty nice.)

In short, the iPhone is about to become much more than a phone. And here’s the best part: the App Store is also available to the original iPhones and the iPod Touch.

So the iPhone 3G is a nice upgrade. It more than keeps pace with advancing technology, and new buyers will generally be delighted.

But it’s not so much better that it turns all those original iPhones into has-beens. Indeed, the really big deal is the iPhone 2.0 software and the App Store, neither of which requires buying a new iPhone. That twist may come as a refreshing surprise to planned-obsolescence conspiracy theorists — and everyone who stood in line last year.

Thanks, Apple!
