Yesterday was release day for the new iPhone GS, and our family now owns two iPhones. We upgraded my wife’s “normal” cell phone to the iPhone GS, and are going to the AT&T store later today to swap SIM cards and register that swap with AT&T so our numbers will remain the same. She is getting my 1st generation iPhone, and I’m getting the iPhone GS. I was surprised that the new iPhone 3.0 software downloaded free to the 1st Gen iPhone, I was expecting we’d have to pay for the update. We would have to pay for the update ($10) to put it on our son’s iPod Touch, but the feature set doesn’t seem to justify it yet.
The first thing I was eager to do on the new iPhone GS was shoot a video and directly upload it to YouTube. Here is our first iPhone recorded/YouTube published video, taken by my 8 year old daughter. She was a little shaky holding the iPhone still, but overall I think the quality is really good for both audio and video. The key is, this video was DIRECTLY uploaded to YouTube! The title of this one minute commentary is, “Irrelevant Paper.”
iPhone GS owners: Welcome to the world of “publish at will” mobility to YouTube.
