Landfall for 3G iPhone?

May 30, 2008

Intense rumours are sweeping the Net concerning news of the next version of Apple’s iPhone which will feature 3G mobile telephony. This has brought to light one of the odder websites of the world: Import Genius. This is a software service that tracks various real-time registers of the movement of shipping containers into the US and allows (paying) customers to keep an eye on their competitors’ supply movements. According to a CNN news story the Import Genius site has registered a large number of shipments for Apple labelled simply as ‘electric computers’ since mid-March. This appears to be on top of their regular shipments of desktop computers.

Looks like Christmas has come early for some lucky people.
