Some of you already know the sad story of my first generation iPhone. Fortunately, there is a bright spot on the horizon — the newer, faster, cheaper iPhone 3G! Announced by Steve Jobs at Apple’s developer conference, this thing rocks. It supports AT&T’s 3G data network, which means faster wireless internet connectivity. It’s got true GPS. And best of all — it now officially supports third-party applications.
The intro at the conference took about 90 minutes, but the good folks over at Mahalo Daily have created a wonderful highlight reel that actually covers all of the salient facts in a mere 60 seconds.
Current iPhone owners such as myself can upgrade, but I’ll have to turn in my old (broken) iPhone and restart my two-year contract. It’s worth it.
When can you get the new iPhone? It hits Apple and AT&T stores on Friday, July 11th. Now you know where you can find me.
