Has the original price of the iPhone caused people to reconsider buying this product? Has it’s sales not met the quota that Apple wanted to achieve when they released the original iPhone? We may never know. What we do know is; Apple has just unveiled a new version that is claimed to be faster, cheaper and have a slightly different design to the original.

The new iPhone will run on the 3G network. This means services will be more advanced than before and offer more features. Some of the services include; video calls, long distance telephone connectivity and high speed wireless broadband which will offer an incredible 14.4Mbit/s in download speeds. It also comes with a 2MP camera like the original iPhone, this is not up to par with recent cameras on the market but can still take a decent photo.

The rechargeable battery included with the phone allows an impressive 5 hours of internet use on 3G and 6 hours on Wi-Fi. Video playback is up to 7 hours and audio playback reaches over 24 hours.

The iPhone launches next month (July 11, 2008) in 20 countries, and eventually expects to reach over 70 countries worldwide. The price for the new 3G iPhone is set in the US at $199 for the 8GB version and $299 for the 16GB version.

The 3G iPhone will be the same wordwide and will use the same network. This has been confirmed by Steve Jobs when he mentioned the 3G iPhone will be tri-band. People will be able to buy it from the US and bring it back to their country. The only downside to this is power input is different in different countries and there may be language issues.


Here is the new commercial in which it is claimed the new iPhone will “surf the web and download data twice as fast for half the price.”
