Apple iPhone 3GS (the ‘S’ stands for speedy)


A new iPhone was spotted last night, and while the body has stayed very much the same, its guts received a much needed overhaul. Apple has thrown a faster processor and twice the RAM into the 3GS, with a 3MP autofocus camera, better battery life and voice controls. iPhone OS 3.0 will come pre-installed, giving you a digital compass, copy and paste functions and a neat Find My iPhone application. It will come in 16GB and 32GB capacities, in the familiar black and white, and be priced US$200 and US$300 respectively. Out in the UAE  this August.

  1. I believe the 3 MP autofocus camera is excellent.
    Apple Inc. is all set to capture the higher end market of mobile phones. Nokia and RIM needs to do something soon to counteract.

  2. Is the August launch date for UAE is authentic? I cant wait to get my hands on to this one. Wonder if the etisalat adopt the drop in iPhone 3G here or not?

    Apple posted the release dates during its WWDC keynote. It says August 9th is the release date over here.

  4. Can you put the new software on the old iPhone?

  5. Thomas Shambler

    Yup. In fact you can get it right now, albeit through the unofficial means of bittorrent. Watch out for an iPhone 3.0 update next week from Apple.

  6. Any news when is iPhone 3GS realeasing officially in UAE? I can find it at various stores here but they are charging exuberant amounts.

    I’ve heard that Etisalat still got lot of stock of iPhone 3G left. I must say, it didn’t sell as much as they might have anticipated.

    Hey Ali,we just gave Etisalat a call – and they’re tight-lipped as ever. When the iPhone 3GS was introduced at Apple’s keynote in June, they said it would hit the UAE on August 9th. That obviously hasn’t happened. Thanks again, Etisalat.
