Apple announces new iPhone 3GS

Apple today unveiled the iPhone 3GS, its third iteration of the popular smartphone, which will include a video camera and an improved still camera, as well as a digital compass and faster Web browsing and launching of programs.

Pricing will be $199 for a 16-gigabyte version, and $299 for a 32-gigabyte model. It will be available June 19.

The current iPhone is known as the iPhone 3G, for the third-generation cellular network it runs on; the addition of the "S" is for "speed," said Phil Schiller, Apple senior vice president. "This is the most powerful, fastest iPhone ever made," he told attendees at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.

The phone will also feature an improved 3-megapixel camera with auto focus, an upgrade from the iPhone 3G and original iPhone, which have 2.0 megapixel cameras. The current iPhone 3G will stay on the market, and cost $99 for the 8-gigabyte model. Until now, pricing on that phone was $199.

It is the lower-cost iPhone that had been rumored in recent months. "We want to reach even more customers," said Schiller. The $99 iPhone is available immediately.

CEO Steve Jobs, on leave since January for health reasons, did not make an appearance at the conference, as some had hoped. He is expected to return to the company later this month, officials said.

Also unveiled Monday were new features of what is called iPhone 3.0 Operating System, which will be available June 17. The software will be a free upgrade for existing iPhone owners, and $9.95 for those who own the iPod touch, which does not have a phone, and uses wireless networks to connect to the Internet.

The ability to cut, copy and paste text will be available for e-mails, Web pages and other programs on the device, as will another key feature: being able to send photos — but not videos — using text messaging.

Photos can now be sent by e-mail using the iPhone, but not text messaging, or MMS, as it is called.

Multimedia messaging for the iPhone, part of the new software for Apple's device, will be added, but not available until the end of the summer, the company said.

Apple vice president Scott Forstall said AT&T, the exclusive carrier of the iPhone in the United States, will not be ready for multimedia messaging, or MMS, for a few months yet.

The new software will also include three types of "push" notifications — alerts, numerical badges and sound alerts, Forstall said.

In addition, voice-based, turn-by-turn GPS navigation software will be available this summer as an add-on program provided by TomTom, a leading maker of GPS devices.

Apple has sold more than 40 million iPhones and iPod touches since the devices were first released nearly two years ago, the company said yesterday.

There are now more than 50,000 applications, or programs, in Apple's App Store, said Forstall. The store was launched last July, and response from software developers has been "staggering," he said.

The iPhone 3G, which went on sale last July, is facing an increased number of competitors in the past year, from the Palm Pre, which went on sale Saturday, to several models of BlackBerrys from Research In Motion, as well as other phones from HTC (including the Google phone, the G1) and Samsung.

Smartphones, which totaled 17 percent of mobile phone sales in the first quarter of 2008 now account for 23 percent of sales, according to a recent report from The NPD Group.

The iPhone has been the best-selling smartphone in the United States, but in the first quarter of this year was eclipsed by Research In Motion's BlackBerry Curve models, something The NPD Group attributed to "an aggressive buy-one-get-one' promotion" from Verizon Wireless.

The iPhone had 19 percent of the smartphone market in the United States as of the first quarter of this year, according to IDC research. RIM, with many different BlackBerrys, led with 55 percent, Samsung with 5 percent, and HTC, T-Mobile's G1 "Google" phone and Palm each had 4 percent, according to IDC Research.

New laptops introduced
Apple also today introduced a lineup of laptops that feature its unibody build, faster processors, and longer battery life, and lowered the prices on its portable computers.

Also, the company's lightest-weight laptop, the MacBook Air, at 3 pounds, now will sell for $1,499 with a hard drive instead of $1,800. A model with a solid-state drive, which is less fragile than a hard drive, starts $1,799. The hard drive will be 120 gigabytes; the solid-state drive, 128 GB.

Apple vice president Schiller also unveiled a 13-inch model MacBook Pro that is billed as having seven hours of battery life using its non-removable lithium polymer battery. A "typical user," he said, will get about five years of use from the battery. Pricing on the 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,119. .

Schiller said that Apple's unibody build, tried first in its 17-inch MacBook pro, has been a great success. "Customers couldn't be happier with them," he said.

The unibody build will be used for the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros.

The laptop with the 13-inch screen starts at $1,200, and the 15-inch model sells for $1,700 and up — both $300 less than existing similar models.

faster 3G on the AT&T network? lol. don't lie to yourself.
or maybe that really is appealing because your iPhone 3G runs on the EDGE network most of the time, instead of real 3G speeds?

and MMS support and tethering IS now available on the iPhone.
however, AT&T doesn't support it.

either way, Apple wins with this because they price dropped the 8gb, and put a new phone out thats basically the same for 300. and idiots will STILL buy it because it's an iPhone.
go apple.

consumers and iPhone owners lose.

Palm Pre k!ller?
pretty sure WebOS v.1.0 does everything iPhone OS does at v.3.0.

why would you support and push the sales on something you dont get paid for though.....especially when they're repackaging the same s**t you already have and reselling it to you?

which means you're being forced to spend more money on the same thing......

it took apple THREE f**kIN YEARS TO GET VIDEO RECORDING.


that s**t comes standard on a f**kin MOTOROLA RAZR!

and Pre is in VERSION ONE of its OS.
its OS is not even a MONTH old and it does 99.97% of what iPhone does at Stage 3 of its OS
Palm already said they're planning to include it in an update.

why in the f**k is that so hard to comprehend?

did you dudes ever graduate from middle school?

granted that the iphone updates are not a knock out of the park... ITS A REFRESH people... its not gonna be a home run... its inciting enough to splurge TO HAVE IF YOU'RE COOL WITH THAT...

the bottom line is that the iphone 3Gs is way better than the PALM Pre(tender)...

and the iphone 3G (w/ or w/o iphone 3.0 software) is better than the PALM Pre(tender)

i know people want the iphone out of the picture, and are tired of iphone getting a LION SHARE of all the props and rave respect in the tech game... but yall have to respect apple and the iphone... its going to be a long time (if not forever) before the iphone becomes second rate...

the bottom line is regardless if you upgrade the iphone software or buy the iphone 3Gs or get the 4G iphone next year... you're gonna have the best phone on the market... point blank period..

Grisly can keep hating all he wants... NOBODY cares about sprint(i left them 4-5 months ago..was there for 8 years) and noone cares about the palm pre... it hasnt lived up to the hype..

Grisley is a fanboy and most importantly a GEEK if he thinks that the pre is better... i've had tech savvi people return that phone saying "it didnt have enough, it wasnt for me" and they were the same people talking trash about the pre supposed to be the best phone on the market... i dont know one person who returned the iphone or has complaints... END OF STORY
smh @ "it didnt have enough, it wasnt for me, so i returned it"
lol. yeaaaaaaa. right.

far from a geek too homey, just very self educated. big difference.
pick up a book some time.


anyway, if the iPhone is SUCH A GREAT PHONE, and SOOOOOO MUCH better than the Pre, then somebody just answer my question.

What does it do that makes it so great, that the Pre can't?


answer that with factual information, or close thread.
simple as that.

f**k outta here wit arguing and fanboy s**t
i talk STRAIGHT f**kIN FACTS.

we know this, no need to try your apple bashing.
yes it took 3 years, we will see how long it will take for the Pre, considering its the same guy who made the iPhone, he made the Pre, blame his a.ss for not adding a Video camera to the phone.

you are taking your fanboyism to a whole new level, you are in every iphone thread trying to bash it but no one is buying your bulls**t sales pitch for the phone.
just shut the f**k up already and move into the Palm Pre thread and stay out of the iPhone thread.
