Fans drool over iPhone, but ask for moreBy Sinead Carew
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Enthusiastic new iPhone owners are starting to sound like the cast of long-running stage musical: “I Love you, You’re Perfect, Now Change.”
Only days after snapping up the latest iPhone, they still glow over their purchase — but already are brainstorming ideas Steve Jobs could use for Apple Inc’s next iPhone.
In comparison to last year’s model, the latest iPhone’s snappier Web speeds, better sound quality, location-aware navigation, and third-party application store left new owners with no doubts that waiting in line for hours was worth it.
