Howler Tech on iPhone 2.0

I asked Ed Hodges of Howler Tech to give us his immediate viewpoint on the new iPhone.

Here we go:

Well, from a hardware standpoint its the iphone that should have existed the first time round, GPS, 3G etc were available a year ago so I’m relieved rather than excited to see them there.

However, I think the new MobileMe suite is amazing. It’ll be the first time I have all my calendars, computers and handhelds synced seamlessly — a joy I’ve been looking forward to for years.

I’m also impressed with the push notification and their use of it for Instant Messaging – smart technology and a clever way to force traffic (and therefore information) through their proprietary systems.

Finally, as a business, we can’t wait to get hold of Apple’s SDK, I believe it will make designing next generation applications a joy and considerably faster.

Perhaps Symbian might take note.

You should always remember though, Mr Jobs wants to sell 10 million handsets whereas Nokia sells 700m a year, so while they are a design leader, commercially you still have to work with the big handset manufacturers and other platforms.

Whew. No need to send my CV to Cupertino just yet then…..if anything, the OEM's should be hiring flat out to try & reach the once-again shifted goalposts.
