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).

    what is voice control?

  • The precise specifications for many iPhone chips are murky. Should Apple be more open about its secret ingredients? http://cite-technologian.blogspot.com/2009/05/iphones-secret-silicon-need-to-know.html

  • Globe should start sending promos on this… I am thinking if buying an unlock phone or from Globe.

    Hi Ethan, Voice Control for iPhone 3GS is like a voice command to other phones. For example, you can make a call on an iPhone 3GS by saying it to the microphone of the headset, not by tapping the phone.

    The title of this article should read “iPhone 3G gets an upgrade” since the 3GS IS the upgrade to the iPhone 3G The way it’s phrased now sounds like the 3GS was just upgraded (which would be a year from now I am sure)
