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: Landscape Keyboard
Another often-requested feature popping up in the new iPhone operating system is the wider availability of the landscape keyboard mode.
The landscape keyboard can now be activated in any instance of Mail, Messages, Notes, or Safari. The function will also be available to iPhone 3G and iPod Touch owners who install the new 3.0 OS update.
Apple iPhone 3G S: Spotlight Search
Also missing from past iPhone incarnations and available in the 3.0 update is a phone-wide search feature. The iPhone 3G S comes with Spotlight Search, which allows you to perform a query across all of the phone's data. You can also opt to limit your search to Mail, Contacts, Calendar, or iPod.
