Apple Compares its 3G Speed to Really Old Windows Mobile and Symbian Devices
In the WWDC 2008 conference keynote today, Steve Jobs compared the iPhone 3G’s 3G internet speed to the Nokia N95 and Palm Treo 750; two devices that are about 6 months older than the original 1 year old iPhone. Apple is notorious for distorting statistics and such in order to make their products seem better than they really are and this might be another good example.
I wonder if newer HSDPA devices can get the same speeds as the iPhone 3G. Engadget says they’ve got 215Kbps on the iPhone 3G, which isn’t much more than the 201Kbps I have seen on T-Mobile’s EDGE network.
What does comparing the iPhone 3G to devices that have been around for 1.5 years say about Apple?
