iPhone 2.0 is a nice release, but it could be better

For every new benefit or addition with the iPhone 2.0, there is potential pitfall or room for improvement. 

Below are the top 5 “So What Benefits” of the iPhone 2.0:

  1. New GPS system.  Yes, but it doesn’t show you where you’re starting from which defeats the purpose if you’re aimlessly lost.
  2. 3G speed.  This is supposed to be an upgrade in Internet speed from the old EDGE network of att; however, this speed is undocumented and may be spotty in certain areas.
  3. Third-party software will offer chat ability.  It is insane that the iPhone cannot offer a chat system directly via its interface.  To have to go through a third-party site or software begs that a flaw is in the technology.
  4. Push technology for e-mails.  This means 2.0 will have e-mails automatically arrive upon receipt instead of needing to check auto-send/receive in settings on a certain timer.  Here’s the catch: this only applies to Yahoo!
  5. The keyboard.  It’s still the screen touchpad approach which, well, it’s not as easy as the Blackberry’s keyboard.
