3G iPhone finally here
Boy Toys by Ding

One of the worst kept secrets of our times, the 3G iPhone from Apple is finally here. It's more human looking with thinner edges, full plastic back, flush headphone jack, and the iPhone 2.0 firmware. Apple's taking a lot of the criticisms to heart from the first time around. Obviously 3G is at the forefront, but they're also making sure it's available all over internationally, works with enterprises, runs 3rd party apps, and does it all for cheaper.

Apple claims its 3G speeds trounce the competition, with pageloads 36% faster than the N95 and Treo 750 - and of course it completely trounces the old EDGE data speeds. Battery life isn't getting put out to pasture though, with 300 hours of standby, 8-10 hours of 2G talk, 5 hours of 3G talk, 7 hours of video and 24 hours of audio. GPS is also a go. Apple is using A-GPS, which supplements regular satellite GPS data with info from cellular towers for faster location. WiFi data is also worked into the mix, which should give users a pretty solid lock on where exactly they are on this planet.

There is no front facing camera for video calls. And despite the phone being thin on the sides, it's actually thicker in the middle. Come out just in time to face the competition in the form of the Sony Xperia X1 and the HTC Touch Pro that we looked at last week. Fight, you say?
