Ever the iPhone denouncer, good ole’ John Dvorak is at it again. Dvorak already made it known that he thinks Apple should trash the iPhone. This time, it’s not so much that he’s talkin smack about Steve Jobs’ baby as much as he is reporting on a scoop from a Cingular insider. The scoop came to Dvorak from “a guy at Cingular whoâ€™s testing the product,” in confidentiality. But – in his podcast – John decided to give up that information anyway, confidentiality be damned.
Apparently, “the amateur mistake that they made is not having a removable battery. You run 20 minutes and youâ€™re using up half the battery power. You get 40 minutes total talk time. And the interface fouls up constantly.” If this turns out to be true, Jobs has mere months – very little time – to get the iPhone and it’s non-removable battery into shape for its June 11 launch.
Thanks for the sleuthing, John. I’m sure your source (if he’s actually legit) is grateful for your job-jeopardizing podcast.
