Apple iPhone 3G


Finally the iPhone 3G is officially released.

The main features are 3G, thinner edges, full plastic back, flush headphone jack, and the iPhone 2.0 firmware .They’re also making sure it’s available all over internationally, works with enterprises, runs 3rd party apps… and does it all for cheaper. Apple claims its 3G speeds trounce the competition, with pageloads 36% faster than the N95 and Treo 750 — and of course it completely trounces the old EDGE data. Battery life isn’t getting put out to pasture though, with 300 hours of standby, 8-10 hours of 2G talk, 5 hours of 3G talk, 7 hours of video and 24 hours of audio. GPS is also a go. Apple is using A-GPS, which supplements regular satellite GPS data with info from cellular towers. WiFi data is also worked into the mix, which should give users a pretty solid lock on where the heck they are on this planet.
Apple hopes to launch in 70 countries this year. 8GB is available for $199, 16GB for $299 — and the 16GB comes in white. Both pricepoints require a contract.

iPhone is relasing in 25 countries in this July 11. It will be available in India through Vodafone. But the releasing date not not yet fixed. Here is the iPhone India Site http://www.apple.co.in/iphone/

  • guys..
    the price of iphone in india is not officially announced. but hope that it will b less than 10k. But you need to sign a 2year subscription contract with the providers(airtel/vodafone).
    For example the AT&T sells iphone @ $199 with a 2 year servce agrmt, which cost around 40$($39 for voice, 30$ for data, $5 for sms) month for subscription. so after 2year the total charge will be not less than $1975. :-) . So wait and c how much it will cost in India

  • sorry.. not 40$ per month.. $74 per month

  • u mean we should pay 75$ per month or 1975$ after 2 years???

    what abt after 2 years?

    shall i use USA ‘iphone’ in india…if yes..how 2 use????no why??

    please reply….
