Welcome to the Daily 5, our "Foolish" look at the business news you can use.
Today's topic? Five reasons why Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL ) new 3G iPhone could rock its stock and deliver a shock to shareholders of Palm (Nasdaq: PALM ) , Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM ) , and Nokia (NYSE: NOK ) . Drum roll, please:
5. More purse-friendly than Nintendo's Wii.
4. Because your cousin Bob just got the new BlackBerry Pearl. And, Lord knows, we can't let Bob win. Ever.
3. Three words: Nearest In-N-Out Burger.
2. New model makes it easy for prospective mates to identify who has a life, and who has p-l-e-n-t-y of time to kill camping out for the latest iThing.
And the No. 1 reason the new iPhone will rock Apple's stock ... Because everyone knows that 3G is the new satellite radio.
There's also the new App Store, where you'll buy digital doodads that spruce your iPhone experience just as iTunes lends purpose to empty iPods. OK, they're more than doodads. Serious business software developers who never really committed to the Mac -- Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL ) , for example -- think enough of the new iPhone to post downloadable tools (read: doodads) to the App Store. Eat that, Microsoft.
