TechRepublic Editor in Chief Jason Hiner has put the Apple iPhone 3GS to the test and written a detailed Product Spotlight review over on the Tech Sanity Check Blog. In addition to the traditional Product Spotlight review, Jason has also made a video where he further expounds on what is good and what is not so good about the iPhone 3GS.
Who is it for?
According to Jason, the Apple iPhone 3GS is great for users who've had trouble using other smartphones, because the iPhone has the easiest UI to navigate - in fact, many toddlers can even figure out how to make it work. The iPhone is also a great fit for users who do a lot of reading on their smartphones, including email, documents, and ebooks, because it has a large high-resolution LCD screen and it's easy to zoom in or make the text larger, if needed, in most programs. It's not as good for users who do a ton of typing, texting, or data entry because it is limited to an onscreen keyboard.
