Will the New 3G iPhone Make Cell Phone Flicks Viable?
Posted 06.10.08 by reelz
When Apple's iPhone first debuted, lovable oddball filmmaker David Lynch decried cell phone movie-watching in a hilarious rant (check it out on YouTube), declaring, "It's such a sadness that you think you've seen a film on your (expletive) telephone. Get real."
For the most part, we've been inclined to agree. But Apple's recent unveiling of the iPhone3G, with its dramatically increased download rates, promises to make the prospect of downloading a feature-length movie and watching it on your iPhone much more viable than ever before. The experience may never be up to Mr. Lynch's standards, but for movie lovers looking to pass the time on a cross-country flight, it'll probably do just fine -- so long as you've got a few extra batteries on-hand.
