iPhone 3G

Announced at the 2008 World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), the iPhone 3G is the successor to Apple’s wildly popular iPhone.

It’s faster, and much cheaper than its predecessor. Starting at $199 (with a two-year contract), you get an 8 gigabyte device with GPS that works on AT&T’s high-speed 3G network (as opposed to the slower EDGE network the original iPhone used). A 16 gigabyte version sells for $299. Apple claims the battery is supposed to support 300 hours of standby time, 5 to 6 hours of Web browsing, 7 hours of video, and 24 hours of audio. However, talk time is cut in half from 10 hours to 5 hours, when using the 3G network.

The iPhone 3G launched on July 11, 2008.
