The Bolivian iPhone

I'll still take the cheap, transister pocket radio over the iPod for a travel companion on the grounds that leaving the iPod means leaving "home" at home. But here's another reason:

Going to La Paz, Bolivia? The radio will work just fine. The iPod? Nope. Not over 10,000 feet it wont. And neither will the iPhone.

According to the technical specs at Apple, the max operating altitude for both is 10,000ft. Bummer. Time to pay that guy running the sidewalk phone for a call.

Wonder if you can get Google maps on this thing?
