In what came as a surprise to almost no one, Steve Jobs announced the new iPhone 3G today (06/09) during his keynote speech at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Here’s a concise list of what new features the 3G iPhone offers:
Available in white/black
No more recessed headphone jack
All metal buttons
3G / GPS
Comes in 8/16 GB models
5 hour talk time
New USB wall charger
The iPhone doesn’t support “true 3G” speeds, rather it is running on the AT&T HSDPA network which qualifies as “3.5G.” In addition, the tech specs say that you’ll need iTunes version “7.7,” which has not been released as of yet. The camera is the same 2.0 mp that we see on the “old” iPhones.
Assuming you can actually get your hands on one, here’s what you will find in the box:
Stereo headset with mic
USB power adapter
Dock Connector to USB cable
SIM ejector tool (also known as a ‘paperclip’)
