The world’s most-talked-about mobile phone supplier, Apple, is said to produce 800.000 iPhones each week. According to TechCrunch “This is “above current full capacity” and there may be some concerns with quality control.”
While I personally like the phone overall, there are just too many things missing (stereo bluetooth profiles, a decent bluetooth keyboard, wireless sync, a decent tethering app) for me to actually buy one. I’m also a bit worried about the amount of control Apple has over their app store; see the reports about Box Office and NetShare for some examples. Since the first reports about cracks in the plastic shell are starting to come out, I’ll wait a bit longer before actually getting one.
Another interesting issue is what will happen to applications that depend on Apple’s brand-new push notification system are banned. Will anyone that bought the app get a refund?
