iPhone 3G

There's been so much talk about the possibility of the "3G" iPhone, it can be hard to keep up with all the rumors. First of all, "3G" technology promises broadband-like speeds over wireless cellular networks. At present, the iPhone only offers 2.5G (EDGE) speeds, which means your web pages and email download at relatively slower speeds.

Recently Steve Jobs just finished the keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference(WWDC 08) in San Francisco and the iPhone 3G details are now available! It will be available in July 11th with a starting price of only $199. New features include the well-known 3G wireless technology, GPS mapping, support for enterprise features like Microsoft Exchange, the new App Store and for its worldwide release it now support more languages. You can choose from 8GB ($199) and 16GB ($299) capacity and the 8GB will only available in black while the 16GB you can have it in black or white. It measures 115.5mm (H) x 62.1mm (W) x 12.3 (Depth) which is slightly slimmer than the previous iPhone and weighs 133 grams. Other features of the iPhone 3G include 3.5 inch touch-screen, HSDPA, Wifi, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, new Apple App Store, Maps, up to 5 hours talktime on 3G, up to 10 hours on 2G, 300 hours stand-by up to six hours of Web browsing, seven hours of video playback, and 24 hours of audio playback. Interesting! The only thing I want to say is go buy the phone, decide for yourself if it's not the greatest device ever made, and then you can say whatever you want because it will then be your opinion.
