«Just one year after launching the iPhone, we're launching the new iPhone 3G that is twice as fast at half the price. iPhone 3G supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync right out of the box, runs the incredible third party apps created with the iPhone SDK, and will be available in more than 70 countries around the world this year».
The iPhone 3G is a smartphone that was designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It is the second generation of iPhone (iPhone 3G), and was introduced on June 9, 2008, at the WWDC 2008 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, United States.
On July 11, 2008, Apple released the iPhone 2 across twenty-two countries in two storage options, apple iPhone 3G 8GB and 16GB. The apple iphone 3g 16GB model was produced in either black or white.
iPhone 3G is a model with support for third-generation networks and integrated GPS-navigation. The phone's design has changed, although only slightly. The back panel is plastic instead of metal. Phone angles became more rounded. The display size, resolution and dimensions remain the same, but the mobile phone has become 2 grams lighter. The stand-by is up to 300 hours, talk time is up to 10 hours. Built-in satellite navigation supports Assisted GPS technology, which allows to calculate the exact location of the phone when there is no or weak signal from the satellite. The device was originally loaded with the concurrently launched iPhone OS 2.0. In addition to other features (including push email and turn-by- turn navigation), this new operating system introduced the App Store—Apple's new distribution platform for third-party.
