3G iPhone launch date

3G iPhone 2Apple today officially unveiled the new 3G iPhone which will be released on the 11th July 2008.

Steve Jobs, the Apple CEO, launched the phone with a much reduced price from the present 2G iPhone.  The 8Gb 3G iPhone will retail at $199 (expected to be £120 in the UK) and the 16Gb version will cost $299 (estimated to be £175 in the UK).

The Apple 3G iPhone was announced in San Francisco earlier today at the World-Wide Developers Conference.

The 8Gb version will only be available in black.  The 16Gb version will be available in either black or white.

Many tech-savvy users have been waiting for the 3G iPhone, a key feature that was missing from the first, more expensive, iPhone.

One potential fly in the ointment may be battery life.

The new iPhone will fully discharge its battery after around 6 hours of browsing.  If we add in to this watching movies such as via YouTube then battery life could fall further.

We will have a full review shortly.
