Waiting game is over for Iphone enthusiasts as the Iphone 3G has been unveiled today at 12:00 midnight in 22 countries. What makes this phone worth the wait is the 3G technology that replaces 2G EDGE in the first release. This Iphone 3G downloads 2.4x faster than Iphone over 2G EDGE networks, and it meets worldwide standards for cellular communications. This makes surfing the web, emailing or watching video easier while on the go. Cool, eh?
Personally, I’ve been using a mobile phone with 3G compatibility and I can attest to it’s fast internet uploads. I can check my emails while on the bus and lately, I’ve found out that I can read blogs and save the site’s url in the built-in rss feed, too. But I’m not in queue to grab this Iphone though I want to see and touch how sleek it is. I’ve enlisted hubby’s name in the queue list in case he wants to have one, lol! And Telia, our favorite tele-operator has the lone right to launch and sell Iphone 3G here.
The features include rich HTML email, Safari web browser, Ipod for music and music video, chat-style view SMS, Maps with GPS, YouTube application, camera, and a lot more. The list is endless so better check it in your local area and you’re lucky if you’re in one of the 22 countries.
