iPhone 3G now Official!

iPhone 3G now Official!As most of you already know by now, the iPhone 3G has now been launched! The new version of the “Jesus phone” has several new additions, however; the 3G feature that everyone had been talking do, definitely steals the spotlight.

The Good Stuff:

Refurbished Design – slightly slimmer thicker than its previous model. The 16GB version has a white glossy finish, all other versions will have a black glossy finish. Recessed earphone socket is now gone! – you can now use any headphones. Slightly curved back to give it a smoother sexier look.

Performance – The new model is supposed to be faster, and should sport a longer battery life… 5HRS of talk time according to Apple. It’s also going to be equipped with an integrated GPS unit along with a few other location-based services to help enhance that feature especially with Google Maps live tracking and photo Geotagging.

Other Improvements – Ability to delete emails in bulk, contacts search function, ability to view Microsoft and iWork documents – (not sure on Excel and PPT files). It will also include several enterprise aimed features like Push email, Push contacts, Push calendar, Auto-discovery of Exchange servers, Global address lookup, and a Remote Wipe feature that i don’t have a clue what it is.

The iPhone 3G will also have TypePad, a native blogging application for the iPhone, so bloggers can easily upload images and content.

Price – Reduced (YAY!!) – iPhone 3G to retail at $200 for 8GB and $300 for 16GB.

The Bad Stuff:

– Considering its a3G model, it doesn’t seem to have a front camera!
– No update to the Bluetooth Radio, still has not been updated to support an A2DP profile.
– I didn’t hear anything about the 2mp camera at the back – sadly I don’t think this has been improved- and I didn’t hear anything on the ability to take video clips either.
