3G iPhone announced with GPS


image As expected the 3G iPhone was announced today at WWDC by Steve Jobs, it will be available in 22 countries from July 11th and will have the following features.

3G but no further details as of yet.

AGPS in built and can be used in combination with cell tower triangulation and Wi-Fi to help locate an iPhone. Finally real-time positioning in Google Maps.


image The device is thinner at the edges, has a full plastic back for reception, solid metal buttons, and a flush headphone jack.

The iPhone can last for 5 hours of 3G talk time and 10 hours of 2G — up from 8 hours on 2G. Browsing is the same at between 5-6 hours, while video and audio playback have been upgraded to 7 and 24 hours respectively.
The device will be available in 70 countries and will sell at $199 for an 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB model. The 16GB model will also be available in white!

There was no mention during the presentation of an improved camera, a front facing camera, copy paste or multi media messaging which is a bit disappointing.
