Poll Result: 52% Like or Love iPhone 2.0

Earlier this week we ran a poll about the latest version of the iPhone announced at Apple’s WWDC event in San Francisco. The results were a little surprising, in that only half (52%) of respondents thought iPhone 2.0 was a solid release — just over 1 in 5 of those thought it was revolutionary. But overall, 20% thought it was ‘meh’ and about 25% were unimpressed.

At time of writing, after 900 votes, the results were:

Q: What do you think of iPhone 2.0?

It’s revolutionary! 12% (105 votes)

It’s a very solid version 2 product, nicely done 40% (359 votes)

Meh, it’s ok 20% (182 votes)

Bah, those features are already in [insert your fave phone here] 16% (140 votes)

Yawn! 9% (77 votes)

Wait, Apple has a phone? 4% (37 votes)

In case you didn’t see the iPhone 2.0 announcement, our network blog last100 posted an excellent overview. The new version iPhone supports 3G and faster data networks, has GPS, has a few cosmetic changes and is thinner, carries a (dramatically) lower price ($199 for the 8 GB iPhone, $299 for the 16 GB model) and will be available in 22 countries starting July 11. It also features Microsoft Exchange and full enterprise support out of the box.

These are all great features, but some people questioned: is the iPhone really that revolutionary compared to products available internationally? For example 3G has been available in many mobile devices for 2-3 years now in places like Japan. Check out the robust discussion in the comments to our post this week, as well as the results of the poll we ran and which you can still vote in:
