Apple announces the release of the new 3GS iPhone at it annual conference…but what is this new iPhone all about?
The answer is speed!
…the ability to launch applications, view attachments, and load games 2 to 3 times faster…and a data speed that will see the new device will support AT&T’s upcoming 7.2 Mbps HSPDA network.
…also, it sports a new 3.0 megapixel camera with auto focus which will record videos that can be edited right on the device and sent by email or directly uploaded to YouTube.
…battery longevity is also improved. Users will see 9 hours of Wi-Fi Internet time, 10 hours of video, 30 hours of audio, and 5 hours of 3G talk time.
16-Gb and 32-Gb version will be available in black and white and will go for $199 and $299. respectively. In terms of looks, there are not changes. The phones will look just like the 3G model.
Even with AT&T maintaing it “stronghold” on selling rights, I got to admit it’s really tempting.
To get one, you will have to pre-order and pick it up at a local store on June 19.
If you want an iPhone, but is not willing to pay 3GS price, you are in luck! The “old” 8-gigabyte 3G model’s going for $99 effective immediately.
In the meantime, AT&T is in the process of upgrading its software to its towers so that it can support this higher speed data.
