New features of Apple's next-gen smartphone
At first glance, the Apple iPhone 3G S may not appear to be much different to its predecessor the Apple iPhone 3G and the original Apple iPhone, but Apple's newly unveiled smartphone offers a slew of new features plus speed. Here's a gallery of the new arrivals.
Apple iPhone 3G S: The Need For Speed
Apple's billing the iPhone 3G S as the "fastest, most powerful iPhone yet". The 3GS is said to double the speed of the 3G phone, providing faster web-page rendering as well as zippier application launching and switching. The iPhone 3G S also has support for 7.2Mbps HSDPA.
Apple iPhone 3G S: Video Recording and Multimedia Messaging
The iPhone 3G S boasts a 3Mp camera that lets you capture and edit both still images and video. The new camera offers a "tap to focus" feature that can automatically adjust an image for focus, exposure, colour, and contrast.
A "trim" option allows you to set in and out points to manipulate video. You'll also be able to upload videos to YouTube or MobileMe or send them via email. Multimedia messaging (MMS) is also available.
