  • NEW: iPhone 3GS - The S is for Speed

    WWDC is fun, huh? Today saw the official announcement of the iPhone 3GS.

    Available June 19th, the iPhone 3GS is billed as "the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet."

    Here's the key points:
    • 2 sizes. 16GB in black or white, $199 | 32GB in black or white for $299.
    • REQUIRES a new 2 year agreement for those prices. Upgrading AT&T users will pay $599 for the 16GB or $699 for the 32GB, even if you're replacing an iPhone 3G. (pf edit: check note below re:this price)
    • Video Recording in VGA up to 30fps, with built in editing features.
    • 3MP camera with auto-focus.
    • Compass.
    • Landscape Keyboard.
    • Battery life on 2G and WiFi increased. 3G battery life remains the same as on the iPhone 3G.
    • Audio playback increased from 24 hours per charge to 30. Video increased from 7 to 10.

    EDIT: There's some chatter in the thread about AT&T actually offering iPhone upgrades at a lower price than quoted in this article. Upon checking out the AT&T website, it looks like the $349 and $299 upgrade prices are for the CURRENT iPhone 3G, NOT the 3GS - AT&T does NOT have the iPhone 3GS listed on their site yet (June 8, 11:45PM EST). HOWEVER, if you log in through Apple's website, they ARE offering existing users a lower price (see below graphic) of $399.00 for the 16GB iPhone 3G S (black or white) and $499.00 for the 32GB iPhone 3G S (black or white) on renewals (plus an $18 upgrade price).

      the upgrading part is babyback bullsh*** I can't pay 600 dollars for a new phone I have school coming up not to mention bills I already have. I'm seriously disgusted with this crap apple and at&t is giving us.. This makes me sad and fed up... 

      I don't think its the rumors that have let people down it is what we expect from Apple as Apple has taught us in this manor... their the ones that want to sell their products and came out with all the cool stuff etc.... with what they have did these past couple of years people expect more from them than this...

      As far as if people want to buy it or not its their choice..... and many would upgrade and want to upgrade as well if Apple and Att were not so greedy.....

      This is all about what people see in other phones and also pricing.... and with a phone THIS popular everyone would like to upgrade every year.....

      I agree with thetoothfairy (not the jalapeño part) but the upgrade part on the iPhone 3Gs is so stupid I can't believe it. I have a 3G I want a new iPhone but I can't pay for that, it sucks. It's hard enough to keep up with my current phone bill. (sigh...) hope there is a win a iPhone 3Gs competition on modmyi this year again like last summer. maybe I'll get lucky.

      Apple really screwed iPhone customers that want to upgrade. I'm pretty depressed by it.... BTW its $399 for 16gig and $499 for 32gig. Check the apple site, you guys might want to correct that

      Honestly....how can ya'll be mad because you might have to pay $500 to upgrade your phone early???

      Hello....this is the ONLY phone that AT&T has ever allowed you to even do an early upgrade on....AND that price is still competitive with any other PDA type device.

      PS- I just wish it was ore "exciting", its gotta look different or I'll think I still have the same thing

      ^ You do have a good point though.... $500.00 yeah but not $700.00 way to much! And really I thought I would have to pay $400.00 to upgrade.....

      Apparently I upgraded May 3rd which means I missed out on being able to send this one back by 6 days. The rep I talked to mentioned that anyone who upgraded between may 9th and june 9th was eligible for the discounted price, I am assuming that meant by sending back their old phone but never inquired about that as I was not eligible for it anyway. I am only upset because if I waited 6 days I could have been able to get it at a discount. If I had my phone my like 7 months or something, I wouldnt care at all. Aside from a better camera and battery, and storage if you went the 32 route, there is nothing on this new phone jailbreaking cant fix, and then some

      I am more upset the 8gb went down to 99 because it completely cockblocked me being able to sell my current phone for enough to cover getting a new one and paying early termination.

      this is really saddening.
      wtf, laame prices for upgrading in regard to att.

      now thru apple i guess thats reasonable somehow.
      why? cause i try upgrading to 16gb white and att charged me 400

      i was ok that may be worth it. but knowing that i can pay the same price thru apple, and get 3gs i guess that sounds better...but idk that sucks the price and lack of thinking of customer satisfaction...

      however, question. if
      order thru apple...will i have to return my iphone 3g?

      or i get to keep it?

      my thing is...how come the voice control is not in the 3.0 software? What makes the 3gs hardware so special that it's on the 3gs and not 3g? I can see with the video, but as other people have posted, cycorder will fix that...
