iPhone 3G S: Apple Announces New Mobile Phone

08 06 2009 - Apple has just announced a new version of the iPhone: the iPhone 3G S. The “S” apparently stands for “Speed,” with Apple indicating that the new device is “the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet.”

There will be two versions of the iPhone 3G S available: 16GB for $199, and 32GB for $299, and they’ll both be available on June 19th. Meanwhile, Apple also announced that it would be dropping the price on the current generation iPhone - iPhone 3G - to $99.

Other features of the iPhone 3G S include “longer battery life, a high-quality 3 megapixel autofocus camera, easy to use video recording and hands free voice control.” The device will include version 3.0 of iPhone’s OS software, which adds “more than 100 new features,” most notably copy/paste, MMS, and a new “find my iPhone” feature that helps you track down a missing device.

The iPhone 3.0 software will be available a couple days before the new device (on June 17th) as a free upgrade to existing iPhone users, and $9.95 for those with an iPod Touch. Now that the WWDC keynote has concluded, Apple has also updated its site with all of the details and specs.
