Well, It's Finally Here!
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past two days, you've heard by now that the second generation iPhone has been officially introduced to the public. "iPhone 3G" or "iPhone 2.0."
Improvements to the phone are as follows:
1.) 3G radio for faster data downloads and uploads when not connected to a WiFi network.
2.) GPS-A for location tracking wherever you are through Google Maps and other mapping software.
3.) Redesigned case back. Now glossy plastic rather than aluminum, available in either black or white.
4.) Two capacities available, 8Gb and 16Gb.
5.) Price drops to $199 and $299 with a 2-year contract or extension with AT&T.
6.) Addition of the App Store which will allow users to download both Apple Certified and third party applications.
