There is a newer version of this phone available, the [[http://www.testfreaks.com/cellphones/apple-iphone-3g/|Apple iPhone 3GS]].

Definitely “The” most wanted device of this year, theres a lot to look forward to. The multi touch navigation is intuitive and makes the phone a great deal of fun.

The display is absolutely hypnotic with crystal clear resolution and good coloring.

The iPhone 3G does not have instant messaging or office apps, but what it does have it has the best of.

A great deal like the first iphone, this one combines a mobile phone, with an Ipod, internet capabilities and adds in a few other functions, such as the 3G support (UMTS/HSDPA - 850, 1900, 2100 MHz) along with its GPS functions.

The iPhone 3G display has the same 3.5 inch display that you're accustomed to, and offers you 320x480 resolution at 163 ppi, however it offers you a slightly higher quality, thicker case, which features one of either a black or awhite plastic back instead of the original aluminum that it sported.

Including either 8 GB or 16 GB of storage ( You can only buy the white model with 16 GB), it also offers support for Wi-Fi, for Bluetooth, and gives you 2.0 megapixel camera as well that supports what they term “geotagging”.

In original reports, Apple states that the iPhone 3G will give you up to 24 hours of play time when in audio, 10 hours of talking time when using the 2G, 5 hours of talking time when using 3G and 6 uninterrupted hours of WiFi internet use.

The Same iPhone 3G will permit you to have about 7 hours of video playback or else close to 300 hours of standby time.

The iPhone 3G offers the same interface as its original model, multi touch, ambient lighting and proximity sensoring although the proximity sensors are now two in number as opposed to the original one.
