The "3G" in iPhone 3G does not stand for "3rd Generation".
It simply means that the phone can be used on a high speed network connection, referred to as HSDPA or 3G. The first iPhone model can only be used on a GSM network (2G).
ITs not out yet and some surprises will happen,,vga video straight off it pretty good its flattened s/e in one swoop..It is expensive but still a quality device..
eric87, 11 Jun 2009just like the old one. just have 3mp camera and auto focus.. and no flash??? are you serios?? ... moreI was answering a question about conference calls.
A good thing about using the same case is that all the accessories for the iPhone 3G should fit the iPhone 3Gs.
just like the old one. just have 3mp camera and auto focus.. and no flash??? are you serios?? omnia rocks!!
franklyn, 10 Jun 2009can it host group conferrence callsYes, just like the old one, you keep adding people to your call until you reach the limit imposed by your network.
Zlad, 10 Jun 2009The previous iPhone had a 624Mhz processor which was UNDERCLOCKED to 400Mhz, iPhone 3Gs has 60... moreThe iPhone 3G has an ARM 11, the iPhone 3Gs has an ARM 8 it's a fairly major difference.
The N97 has an ARM 11 and half the RAM it will not be able to do demanding tasks like video editing as well as the iPhone.
The VGA video resolution matches Nokia's best, if you want more you need a Samsung or LG.
this is the best cameraphone ever, other manufacturers couldnt even come close to the quality of this camera, autofocus, and revolutionary tap to focus
Apple revolutionizes handphone imaging, others just copy and follow
Hi, Every one
I would request all iphone lovers in UK, not to rush into getting new model. Dont't let greedy supplier get big bonuses on your cost. Remember, it cost less transportation from Factory in China to UK, then USA.
Then why supplier prices are 3 times higher than USA prices. Also please complain Apple US to take note of UK rip off prices.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 20093G does not mean 3rd generation. Thats not right. It is the 3G network that the iPhone runs on... moreIt does mean 3rd Generation, and Iphone 3G S is just an UPDATE to the last one... Also, it should have a second camera as it is called 3G, but is one of the things that are missing, just for marketing reasons...
The previous iPhone had a 624Mhz processor which was UNDERCLOCKED to 400Mhz, iPhone 3Gs has 600Mhz: same processor, only more expensive.
No Radio, no second camera, it sucks...same design...they should've re-designed iphone 3gs
OK , im not a fan of the iphone and never have been ok. So dont hate on me, im telling u now, however the iPhone 3Gs ( s for speed ) i think the specs on it seem alot better and have much improved from the old iPhone. However, Im not planning on buying this haha trust me, my heart is set on the HTC Touch Pro 2 but, does anyone know wot the price for the iPhone 3GS will be in the UK
What Apple has managed to do is that they have gotten people excited about features that came out 7 years ago, like video recording, and Bluetooth. Not everyone can do that.
Its sells cos of the BRAND APPLE. if this phone was made by any other maker. it would sell peanuts. there are phones that have better features, quality and cost lesser(unlocked)... and then there is iphone.
i guess the GS also cannot transfer files through blue-tooth.
some people telling that they are disappointed because its almost the same like the previous, but you guys are just telling it because you are blinded by it having same looks as the 3G, apple should have changed the design, like they did with the 3G and the original. but if you really technically compare the changes, the 3G to 3Gs has bigger changes than the original to 3G.
before ... the iphone3G only has 3G, 3rd party application support, and a better headset jack over the original iphone but with a different exterior design looks, then nobody complained about it being similar.
now the 3Gs, 3G is twice the speed, has 256mb ram over 128mb of the old 3G, new and better 3D graphics support, camera has changed to 3mp with touch focus, has video recording and geotagging, has voice control, built in digital compass, now with data encryption and a better battery life. but same exterior looks as the old 3G, now everybody complains of it being almost same as the 3G... how ridiculous!
