New Apple iPhone 3G S with 3MP Autofocus, Video Recording

Apple has released the new iPhone 3G S which claims to be the fastest and most feature rich iPhone yet. The new iPhone 3G S is twice as fast as iPhone 3G, has got a longer battery life, a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, easy video recording and hands free voice control. Compare the iPhone 3G S and iPhone 3G and see what has changed.

iphone-3gsiPhone 3G S is powered by iPhone OS 3.0 mobile operating system and has now built in over 100 most requested features like Cut, Copy and Paste, MMS, Spotlight Search, landscape keyboard etc. iPhone 3G S uses OpenGL ES 2.0 standard for high-quality 3D graphics, while supporting 7.2 Mbps HSDPA for faster networking speeds.

Simply “tap to focus” and the new autofocus 3MP camera adjusts focus, exposure, color and contrast for the best possible image and also includes an automatic macro focus for extra close up shots. Now record high-quality video clips and edit them right on your iPhone 3G S by simply trimming the start and stop points.

The voice control feature allows hands free operation – speak the appropriate commands into the built-in microphone or headset microphone to dial by name or number, and control your favorite music by artist, album or playlist.

iPhone 3G S also features a new built-in digital compass for instant navigation, which integrates well with the iPhone’s built-in GPS that automatically displays the coordinates of your current location.

iPhone 3G S will be available in the US on June 19 for $199 (16GB) and $299 (32GB). Remember now iPhone 3G S requires a new two year contract with AT&T. iPhone OS 3.0 software will be available on June 17 as a free software update via iTunes 8.2 for all iPhone customers. So that means the previous iPhone 3G just got cheaper at $99 only for the 8GB model!

I hope Apple reduces the expensive iPhone prices and data plans in India for mobile users, and makes it more affordable for one of the largest mobile markets in the world.
