So this morning I waited in line to get the brand new iPhone 3G. For those of you who just have to know, I opted for the black 16 gig version.
One reason why I wanted to upgrade was that 3G unlocks a lot of options for you that you don’t get with EDGE. You’re naturally going to be able to download more data to your phone A LOT faster.
I had downloaded the Pandora Radio iPhone App to my older phone but there were constant delays in playing songs as the phone had to catch up with the song it was downloading.
Now on the iPhone 3G, I can listen to music on Pandora seamlessly just as if I was listening to Pandora from my computer. This is GAME CHANGING.
I already hardly ever listened to the radio. I think this seals the deal.
The thing I want next is for my friends at ODEO to create an iPhone app so that I can stream audio podcasts write to my iPhone. I travel a lot and I’d love to be able to download the TWiT podcasts write to my iPhone without having to sync up with my computer.
Then… I’d be able to have the equivalent of both new radio music and talk programming right at the command of my finger tips in my iPhone. WAY cool!!!!
So… what do you think of the Pandora Radio App? Do you more so prefer the Last FM or AOL Radio iPhone Apps? Do you prefer listening to the radio? If so, why?
