Apple announced the 3G iPhone today. It's a pretty small feature enhancement, only three new things:
- 3g Network
- GPS built in
- $200 for 8gb, $300 for 16gb
I think the best upgrade is the price. I was hoping for a lot more I guess, because that just doesn't seem all that exciting. There are still a bunch of holes:
- No MMS support
- No stereo Bluetooth
- No video recording support
They basically just changed the chipset inside and called it a day. Whoopie.
UPDATE: The price is not cheaper in the long run, it's a lot more expensive. The new iPhone 3G plan will cost me $75/mo, compared to $60/mo for the original. That means I would end up spending $160 more for the new iPhone over 2 years, versus the original.
