New iPhone 3GS vs iPhone 3G of yesterday.

Posted by Minnaar Pieters 08 Jun 2009
Well, the iPhone 3G got replaced by the 3GS tonight. In short, better battery life, faster processing, more storage for the same price and a much better camera. Good news for the recession is that the older 3G model will keep on selling at a $100 subsidized price, which is actually very cheap. Soon iPhone will not be a elitist phone anymore...

With the new prices it is becoming a very tough sell for the likes of HTC/Google with their Android phones. Currently the HTC Magic / G2 is going for about R6500 prepaid, which is very similiar in price to the iPhone 3GS when it will be released. The 3G "non S" model will probably drop even more. On the other hand, if Core has anything to do with the import, we might not be so lucky.

iPhone OS 3.0 is coming on 17 June, and the iPhone 3GS is coming on 19 June in the US, 9 July in other markets such as South Africa. If you have iPhone OS 3.0 and want the South African settings for MMS and tethering, get it here.
