Apple unveils new iPhone
So there it is. The new iPhone. So what’s different?
If you were expecting anything earth shattering, you’ll probably be disappointed. The new iPhone 3GS is more of a tweak of the iPhone 3G than a completely new device.
According to Apple:
It’s faster: twice as fast as the iphone 3G, apparently, and performs better with applications.
Longer battery life: essential for all the music/video/still images etc. One of my pet peeves about smart phones and mobiles in general is crappy battery life. No one wants to have to charge their phone every day.
Bigger Capacity: A new 32GB version has been introduced, with the 8GB version down for a cut in price (in the US at least).
Better multimedia capability: improved camera with autofocus, video recording functions and the ability to send images and video via MMS.
Voice control: Like a true gadget geek, this is what actually got my attention.You can control the iPhone and iPod functions through voice commands,
dial by name or number, play music by artist, album or playlist,tell it to skip tracks, pause music… It could be the one thing that tempts me to buy one. Although the one that would stop me is the fear that people would think I was talking to myself.
