Apple 3G iPhone



Almost one year after the original Apple iPhone went on sale, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has announced a 3G version of the device, finally putting to rest months of rumors and speculation. While some of the rumors panned out--the new handset will offer full GPS--other rumors, like the addition of a 32GB model, fizzled. But even with the long list of basic features that Apple still is denying us (hello multimedia messaging?), the addition of 3G support is a big win. If data speeds hold up as Jobs demonstrated (more on that later), the new iPhone really will put the Internet in your pocket. We also approve of the new price: $199 for the 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB version, a pleasing price for all but the poor souls who shelled out nearly $600 a year ago. The new iPhone will go on sale July 11.




Though the iPhone 3G is thinner at the edges than its predecessor, the phone measures a hair thicker (0.48 inches versus 0.46 inches) in the gut. The other measurements are the same except that it weighs just the slightest bit less (4.7 ounces versus 4.8 ounces).


What makes iPhone a great business phone? Simple. The same features that make it a revolutionary mobile device. With iPhone 2.0 software, iPhone does even more for your enterprise. It supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, delivering push email, calendar, and contacts. And it gives mobile users secure access to corporate resources with Cisco IPSec VPN and wireless network services with WPA2 Enterprise and 802.1X authentication.

3G Speed


With support for three 3G bands (850, 1900, 2100) and both UMTS and HSDPA networks, the iPhone 3G is well positioned for using high-speed networks all around the world. Considering that Apple is promising to bring the device to 70 countries, it had better be. During his WWDC keynote, Jobs compared Web download speeds between the two iPhones. On the original model, which runs on a 2.5G EDGE network, a photo-heavy Web site loaded in 59 seconds, while the same site loaded in 21 seconds on the new device--impressive, but we take it with a grain of salt for now.

iPhone in Enterprise


Email on iPhone offers a viewing experience unlike any other mobile device. Its rich HTML format means email looks and acts like email on your computer. With support for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, PDF, JPEG, and now iWork, attachments can be viewed exactly as they were designed to. Users can even zoom in on important information with the tap of a finger. And now that iPhone has built-in support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, users get all the benefits of push email.

Worker bees will be pleased to know that the iPhone 3G will offer support for Microsoft Exchange Server. That will bring push e-mail, contacts and calendar, remote wipe, global contacts access, and auto-discovery. That's another welcome change as it puts the iPhone in the hands of a whole new class of corporate users who now will be able to get their work e-mail on the iPhone.



iPhone has even more great features for business users. Find a customerís address and get directions with GPS-powered Maps. Send SMS messages to multiple recipients. Get a one-tap weather report before your next business trip. Check stocks at a glance. Write notes to save or email. Even perform complex calculations with the built-in scientific calculator.




Internet


iPhone features Safari ó the most advanced web browser ever on a portable device. And with 3G and Wi-Fi, you can browse the real Internet really fast. iPhone also syncs your bookmarks from your PC or Mac and has Google and Yahoo! search built in.Access the web with Safari whether youíre connecting via EDGE, faster 3G, or even faster Wi-Fi. iPhone automatically connects you to the fastest network available.
Get a closer look at any web page by zooming in and out with a tap or a pinch. View websites in portrait or landscape mode: Rotate iPhone 90 degrees and the website rotates, too.


Battery

Last year Jobs said that Apple had not included 3G in the first iPhone because it would have made too many compromises with the handset's battery life. But now it appears that Apple has solved that problem. The iPhone 3G promises a solid 5 hours of 3G talk time, 10 hours of 2G talk time, 5 hours of 3G Internet time, 6 hours of Wi-Fi Internet time, 7 hours of video playback, 24 hours of audio playback, and 12.5 days standby time. The audio and video times are unchanged from the original iPhone.

GPS

This is one feature that was on our original iPhone wish list. While the current iPhone location services find your position via nearby cell phone towers and satellites, the iPhone 3G uses Assisted GPS supplemented by satellites. It also offers live tacking so you can monitor your progress as you drive (or walk) along.

Camera


With a built-in camera and an advanced photo application, iPhone is the most photo-friendly phone ever. It takes snapshots, automatically syncs photos with your PC or Mac, displays albums with the flick of a finger, and posts pictures directly to a MobileMe Gallery.

The iPhone camera snaps shots with a tap. Photos you take appear in the Camera Roll, and they sync back to your computer the next time you connect. iPhone uses iTunes to sync the photos you have in iPhoto on a Mac or Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Photoshop Album on a PC. Show thousands of photos from the palm of your hand. Rotate iPhone to see a photo in landscape. Pinch to zoom in or out. If you run across a great image on the web ó or get one in an email ó save it to your photo library on iPhone.


iPod


With its beautiful 3.5-inch widescreen display and Multi-Touch controls, iPhone is also one amazing iPod. Browse your music in Cover Flow and watch widescreen video with the touch of a finger.Scroll through songs, artists, albums, and playlists with a flick. Browse your music library by album artwork using Cover Flow.iPhone brings you a video experience unlike any other portable device. Watch TV shows and movies from the iTunes Store on the 3.5-inch widescreen display. Audio and video from your iTunes library sync to your iPhone when you connect it to your computer. Choose what you want to sync and iTunes does the rest.

Pictures of the iPhone 3G being unboxed have appeared. The iPhone 3G that got out earlier is said to be really fast when it comes to Web browsing. But for the 3G iPhone lovers who have been impatiently waiting for Appleís new handset and seeing it unboxed, three days before it officially hits the stores, might almost be similar to getting it earlier for themselves. For others, it will only heighten their desire to own it. The countdown here in the US continues, with the iPhone 3G release just 3 days away. Well, thatís it for now on the early unveiling of iPhone 3G. Enjoy the available images till you can get the real thing.

Apple selling 3G iphone with particular operator, ( 3G iphone )tariff plan is available when you will purchase iphone. Suppose if you want to gift someone who lives in other country then you can't gift them because phone is locked for use in specific country.
