The iPhone 3GS comes with a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera with 30fps VGA video recording capabilities and on-device editing functionality, 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity, built-in compass, hands-free voice control, and best of all, runs on the new iPhone OS 3.0. It also comes with a faster processor and an improved battery which can provide up to 12 hours talk/data time on a 2G connection (up from 10 hours), 9 hours data on Wifi (up from 6 hours), 30 hours audio (up from 24 hours), and 10 hours of video (up from 7 hours). It’ll be available in 16GB and 32GB variants, and will go on sale in the US beginning June 19. Here in the Philippines, it’ll hit the market sometime in July via Globe.
However, Apple will still continue the current iPhone 3G line though limiting it to the 8GB version and available in black only. As a result of the new model, the iPhone 3G is now being offered at a more affordable price of just $99 on-contract in the US. If this trend is carried over here, then the 8GB iPhone 3G can be had for as little as P8K++ on the high-end post-paid plans. This is, of course, pure speculation at the moment, but wouldn’t it be nice if it were true?
