Apple posts extended Guided Tour for iPhone 3G

iPhone 3G Guided Tour

Apple has posted a new Guided Tour video, this time elaborating on the iPhone 3G. The extended version of the video runs approximately 38 minutes, and covers all expects of using an iPhone, from making calls and managing contacts through to taking photos and watching videos. Most of the information should be familiar to owners of 2.5G iPhones.

Viewers who want 3G-specific content can watch What's New, a version truncated to 10 minutes that only addresses the new hardware and software functions of the upgrade. Aside from 3G broadband, the clip highlights the use of GPS within Google Maps, Exchange support and options, and support for Asian languages. A major segment deals with the App Store, and the ability to download games and utilities directly from an iPhone. Visitors to the App Store will be able to check for software updates from their phone, or receive notifications automatically.

    "from" an iPhone

    And while we're on the subject of grammar: The article indicates one of the new features is "the ability to download games and utilities directly from an iPhone".

    "From" an iPhone? Really? The server pushing out the AppStore content isn't a computer at all, but is actually one little iPhone serving up such files to all these users?

    I don't think so. Instead, I think that "to an iPhone" was meant (as in: No computer needed; the content winds up directly on your device). You'd think that simple understanding of basic computer terminology should be a prerequisite for writing for an online site - shouldn't it?

    (Yes, perhaps I'm being a bit pedantic, but there have been enough mistakes that it seems the MacNN writers need to rethink who is able to post article)

    Well, the least you could do is use a spell checker.

    voice recognition?

    Anyone notice when he was looking for David Martinez on the Apple address book/directory that it showed up with "david" on the line below his full name on the address card. That looks curiously like a "nickname" for voice activation/calling.....

    That line underneath is already there. Company Name or Title show up there

    Who is the narrator?

    Is that a slight eastern European accent that I detect? Had a problem at first understanding what an EYE-phone was [emphasis totally on the first syllable only]. Until now I've heard it pronounced with equal emphasis on Eye and Phone...

    But for this nit, it was quite informative.

    It is different

    That line underneath is already there. Company Name or Title show up there

    No, I just checked a corporate entry in my iPhone. When it shows the Title on a corporate entry, it does not put " " marks like it does in the demo. That is something new and some type of nickname or reference to voice dialing.
