New iPhone 3G S

Today Apple Announced that the iPhone 3.0 software update will be out June 17th. They also announced the new iPhone 3G S which will be available on June 19th. I for one can't wait to get the new phone for development and personal use. Here's a short rundown on a few of the new iPhone features:

  • 3 Megapixel camera with Auto focus, auto white balance, better low light performance, and macro.

  • Support for Video recording, video trimming / minimal editing, and sharing with Youtube and other services.

  • Much faster processor

  • Voice control, voice dialing, and iPod control

  • improved Accessibility

  • Digital compass chip

  • Improved battery life

The new phone will be available in a 16gb version for $199 and in a 32gb version for $299.  They are also keeping the 2nd gen 3G around for $99 (not sure if that is the 8gb or the 16gb version).

Update: Check out the Apple Store for more info.
