It’s old news that the iPhone is a huge worldwide hit, and the darling of the smartphone market. So, why does Tom Kaneshige think Apple is mute? Because Apple doesn’t respond publicly to his list of problems. After all, if they did, what would Tom write about?
The iPhone 3GS has been an undeniable marketplace hit since its release on June 19, and will likely continue to soar in sales despite three customer complaints that have surfaced recently. The big three gripes: the iPhone 3GS battery life is dismal, the 3GS overheats, and there’s a serious SMS vulnerability.
All 3G smartphones have battery problems because there’s only so much battery that can be packed into a small space, and users insist on using the features; cellphone, games, music, movies, applications, utilities. All those suck up a battery very quickly. It’s not just an Apple problem. All have the same problem. It’s math.
The iPhone overheats? Yes. As do all 3G smartphones which run a cellphone, games, music, movies, applications, and utilities. All at once. Again, it’s math. How about that SMS vulnerability? Someone with malicious code could attack your iPhone if they have your number.
