IPv6.... the future or the past...?

RIPE (The europen internet registry) says:
With approximately 85% of all available IPv4 Internet addresses already in use by May 2008, experts predict that the remaining stock of unallocated IPv4 addresses will be consumed by around 2011. This may have an impact on new Internet users and users of Internet devices that are not IPv6 enabled. In contrast, the pool of available IPv6 numbers will exceed 340 billion billion billion.

ITU invites to a workshop on IPv6:
The main purpose of this workshop is to raise awareness of the importance and opportunities of the deployment of IPv6...

Apple has support for IPv6 in MacOS X since a long time.

BUT: iPhone has no IPv6 anymore.

Am I missing something?

App Store starts

AppStore has started. Tons of US-Apps. Of course they had 3 months more to prepare compared to folks on this side of the ocean. But there's more to it.

More information about Enterprise Distribution will be available soon.

So we can continue to go fishing...

But hey it ain't so bad. Almost no one gets iPhone 3G anyway as the supply is so short :-)

SIM Lock confirmed.

Dear Mr. Abonde
Thank you for your email. We are happy to reply to your query.
The new iPhone mobiles (prepaid-Easy & postpaid) will be SIM-locked for 24 months. Swisscom is not allowed to sell unlocked iPhones. The SIM-lock is a component of the agreement of Swisscom & Apple. So it will be not possible to use it with SIM Cards from other providers.

So if you travel often, don't buy an iPhone DONT BUY.
(or at least not in Switzerland).
