2nd Generation iPhone – 3G iPhone
It’s official! Apple has announced the 2nd generation iPhone and plans on starting distribution as early as June in Spain. Unfortunately, those of us in the U.S. are going to have to wait until July 11th to get our hands on one. The major feature enhancements for the 3G iPhone are:
- 3G capability (which equates to faster network connectivity over EDGE)
- GPS functionality built in
If you are happy with the current speed an functionality of your 1st generation iPhone, I’d recommend keeping it, though the new $199 price point for the 8GB 3G iPhone is going to be hard for many of us techies to resist.
iPhone 2.0 Firmware Release Date
Still an unofficial guesstimate, the iPhone 2.0 firmware update will supposedly be released on June 11, 2008. We all knew that it was referred to as the “June Update” for quite some time, however, the exact date is still up for debate. If anyone has any information, please do share!
