iPhone 3GS gets an upgrade
Apple unveiled an upgraded version of their iPhone, the iPhone 3G S (the S in 3G S seemed to indicate speed).
Aside from bigger storage capacity (16GB and 32GB models), the iPhone 3G S also has a better built-in camera with autofocus and can record video at 30fps.
Apple also claimed to have improved the battery life to last 50% longer — up to 5 hours 3G talk time, 9 hours of WiFi, and 10 hours on video playback. Then, there’s Voice Control, a Digital Compass and faster HSDPA performance of up to 7.2Mbps.
The new iPhone 3GS will be available on June 19, 2009 in the US. I asked Globe executives today to comment on the iPhone 3G S but they could not give any nor provide an estimate time when the new iPhone will be available in the Philippines (although according to Apple, it will be on July 2009).
