  • iPhone 3G is OFFICIAL and $199 - flush headphones, black, metal buttons, same screen
    Apple announced today the 3G iPhone.

    Photos from Engadget, Mac Rumors, and Gizmodo:








    Some features:
    built in GPS
    black back, new design
    5 hours 3G talk time
    7 hours video playback
    10 hours 2G talk time
    300 hours standby


    I'll be updating as we go.

    $199 for the 8GB model, $299 for the 16GB model - launch date is July 11

    edit: Apple and AT&T stores are confirming that the 3G iPhone will be sold for $299 and $399 without contract (for 8 and 16GB, respectively), and $199 and $299 with a contract.

    edit again: source proved to be completely false, sorry.


    The 16 GB model will also come in white.

    The Apple store, which was down earlier, is now showing pictures and has the page up for the 3G iPhone.







    Apple has posted more pictures in their gallery for the 3G iPhone.

      I totally agree man, huge disappointment, im not one to complain but they could have at least put mms on there, and updated the camera to 3mp at least. i probably wont be buying one of these at all

      Best feature for me is the ability to receive a call while sufing the web at 3g, that and the better battery.

      This is a great move for apple and will definitely put them over their make of 10MM iphones.

      the iphone has proved that the whole camera route that every single mobile phone was going down prior to the launch of the iphone was the wrong road.

      yeah.. if it would be $100 more, we might get a 5mp camera and an extra video camera at the front for video conferencing. now by lowering the price Apple seems to have put the iphone down to "in pair" with other phones. I guess I will wait for the next next generation iphone.

      Not sure how to break this to you, but they've already sold 6 MILLION iPhones. You're nothing special and thinking a phone makes you special just makes you look like an idiot.

      LoL yea I kind of feel you on that one. No one's gonna be excited to see an iPhone anymore.

      I was just wondering how they will compensate for the low price. I mean, is that why it's plastic now? Cheap regular plastic?

      First people complain because the iPhone is too expensive; now people are complaining because it is too cheap. I don't really get the exclusivity thing; when I go out on weekends, seriously a third of the crowd seems to have an iPhone. I think people stopped being excited about seeing an iPhone about 9 months ago.

      So far I've only met one other person with an iPhone and no I do not lead a sheltered life. I have over 200 friends on facebook. (Smell the sarcasm)
