3G iPhone

Well Me Jobs what have you pulled out from your bottomless sleeve this year? Well we have a 3G iPhone complete with GPS so instead of going out and buying an inferior Tom Tom just get one of these. So there really isn't much to say but it is going to be about £100 which is much cheaper than the slower and much inferior first generation iPhone.

Furthermore this time round companies providing mobile phone plans will be allowed to subsidise the costs of the phone but this will be accompanied by expensive plans (in the US they are £15 - $30) while here the costs of the plans will probably be double. I have not seen the new iPhone yet but will do soon.

New iPhone...

Well it looks like the time will be upon us soon when the new iPhone will be unveiled and as usual the boss of the Apple Corporation, Steve Jobs, will give one of his enthusiastic demonstrations and show his red hot passion for his new money making device.

In a side note Apple will allow companies selling iPhones to subsidise the cost so that people on a contract for £35 a month will be able to pick up an iPhone from o2 for the small sum of £100. Which in comparison to the first gen iPhone is much cheaper and a step forward.

Continuing on the iPhone vein Apple is going to open up and allow third party applications run on the iPhone. I say it took then long enough but then again it is just a headline grabbing exercise to build up hype for the new iPhone.

Finally the one feature which had been predicted on the day the first gen iPhone was released is (drum roll please): a 3G enabled iPhone.
