  • 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.

Bad move apple, or is it? How many people will choose AT & T, 2 year contract just to have this Iphone. Someone tell me there is HOPE out there with all you hackers. I can just see the Apple stock going downnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.....

      some of you act like babies...are you getting the phone because YOU WANT IT...or because you want to be the only one with it? Seems a bit immature to me..."i only want the phone to surprize my friends when they see it"....the phone is a good phone regardless...and some of you are forgettin about updates and what not.....the 2nd gen phone will only improve...

      tho i do believe the 1st gen seems to be a classic

      AT&T and Apple retail stores will require in store activation when you buy the iPhone, which really sucks because i want to get mine unlocked for tmobile. And it wont be sold on apples online store

      actually the firmware has been jailbroken a while back, using some of the software from the SDK and 2.0 beta. But it's still best to wait a little before jumping on the bandwagon,especially since it'll take a while for developers to come up with apps via Installer.app

      So glad I sold my iPhone for 600CAD last week, lol!
      I'm going white 16gb!
      Worse to worse even if there is a contract, I'll get it and then cancel contract immediately!

      ROFL Glad to see I wasn't the only one. I was all excited, and then my friend says something about having to wait a month, and my heart sank.

      New iPhone really doesnt impress me all that much, but I currently have a 4gig, and was planning on getting a larger one anyways. Might as well get the new one

      The only real benefits would be the faster speed and the "GPS capability" - I use the term VERY lightly because it will likely require an Internet connection.

      Sit back and wait until June 11 for grampa Rogers to decide how best to hose his fellow citizens. If he could find a way to assign values to individual characters, I am sure he would. "Unlimited vowels for $5/month".

      :P

      $199/$299 is the new global retail cost for the iPhone, not the carrier subsidized cost.

      Mark my words.

      Not a chance.

      On another note, let's throw another log on the fire.....

      I sell my 1st gen (which won't happen) and buy a 2nd gen. I want a second phone for my GF and put it on my family plan line, this means two iphones on a single contract plan @ $199 each.

      Figure that one out, apple.

      Now what ya gonna do? one user, one contract, one price @ $199..... no, ATT has family plans and multiple family members (some families as big as 5 or 6 for two parents and three siblings) will want a "set" of iphones.

      All the new hype and everything, but still no copy and paste and/or flash support, no saving attachments eventhough we're getting Exchange support, oh STILL no video and how can I forget... NO MMS message either...
