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: Hands-Free Voice Control
Apple's iPhone 3G S adds built-in support for hands-free voice control. Using voice commands, you can dial by name or number; play music by artist, album, or playlist; activate the iPod Genius feature; pause or skip tracks on the iPod; and receive information about the track that's currently playing.
The 3G S also has an integrated Voice Memo application that allows you to record voice memos onto the device.
Apple iPhone 3G S: Digital Compass
Apple matches Google Android's navigational power with a newly added digital compass for the iPhone 3G S.
The compass, activated via a dedicated app, functions just like a regular compass would - except with the added benefit of also being able to see your current location by using the iPhone GPS system.
The compass is integrated within Maps as well.
