So, what’s with the new iPhone 3G?
Well, it’s pretty much the same iPhone as before — except now it’s down to $200, and has way faster 3G data, A-GPS (which is even better than regular GPS), as well as a flush headphone jack (which is great for anyone who doesn’t want to use Apple’s bundled headphones). Oh, and it’s also a little thinner around the edges, and a little thicker at the center. If you want to know what it was like to try out, check out our iPhone 3G hands-on.
How’d they get the price so low? The iPhone used to be crazy expensive.
Actually, depending on how you do the math it’s not actually cheaper. Now, in some countries the iPhone is free when you sign up for service, and in the US you’ll pay $200 for the 8GB model — half what it was a month ago — so you’re definitely paying less up front. But the data plans cost more now, so you might wind up spending more money over the long run.
One of the big announcements to come out of WWDC 08′ was the introduction of Apple’s new MobileMe Internet service. MobileMe features push email, push contacts and push calendars from your “cloud” to native apps on your iPhone, iPod touch, Mac or PC. MobileMe will be available shortly and will replace Apple’s .mac service.
The MobileMe service will deliver a desktop-like experience on the web. Changes made on your MobileMe cloud will automatically update native applications on all of computers and or devices.
With the iPhone 2.0 Software Update, your iPhone will do even more. Extend its capabilities with innovative applications you download directly from the new App Store. Get push email, calendar, and contacts from your Microsoft Exchange server at work. And use great new features in Mail, Contacts, and other applications. Free
