Quick highlights of New iPhone 3G(S)

Faster Phone (Yes ‘S’ in 3GS stands for much improved ‘SPEED’):
– 50% bump in CPU speed; it now runs at 600MHz
– The system memory has doubled to 256MB

Key Features:
– 3MP Camera with auto-focus
– Video enabled camera can shoot video @ 30FPS
– 16GB & 32 GB variant ($199 & $299)
– 15-20% improvement in Battery life
– Voice Controls
– Compass
– Supports tethering (via USB or bluetooth) – depends on service provider (Sadly, AT&T doesn’t supports it)
– MMS (AT&T isn’t ready yet, probably by end of summer)

Bottom Line: Decent upgrades for iPhone. Previously announced new iPhone OS 3.0 available on June 17.  But AT&T needs to keep up with other service providers in the world! Really, why does the telecom industry in America sucks so much? Anyone for that?
