The competition in the mobile phone world will never stop. On June 6th Palm have published its new competitive phone Palm Pre. Then on June 8, Apple has unveiled new iPhone at WWDC - the iPhone 3G S. It announced that new iPhone 3G S will sell on June 19th. The price of iPhone 3G 3.0 has slow down to 99 dollars and the rumor said that new iPhone will sell at 199 dollars of 16GB and 299 dollars of 32GB. Besides the price strategy, the new iPhone will largely improve its function as well as bring many new features to compete with Palm Pre. Then let’s have a close look at the new iPhone 3G S: How does the new iPhone improved compare with the original iPhone 3G 3.0?


Appearance: unchanged

From the picture we can found that there is not much change on iPhone’s appearance.



Battery life: longer

The new iPhone battery life last longer than the original iPhone 3G: for talk time, iPhone 3G can last up to 10 hours on 2G and iPhone 3G S is 2 hours longer; On Internet use, iPhone 3G can last up to 6 hours on Wi-Fi, and iPhone 3G S can last 9 hours on Wi-Fi; For audio playback iPhone 3G S can last up to 30 hours while iPhone 3.0 24 hours, and for video playback, iPhone 3G S can last up to 10 hours, 3 hours longer than iPhone 3G.


Storage capacity: bigger

The rumors said the capacity of new iPhone would be bumped to 16GB and 32GB. Much bigger than the 8GB of iPhone 3G,


The Speed: Faster

Apple is promising faster performance — the "S" in 3G S signifies "speed." Apple claims it'll render Web pages and launch applications twice as fast on average as the iPhone 3G. So the new iPhone would be faster to use.


New features of the new iPhone:

iPhone 3G S Camera

With 3 Megapixel, auto-focus camera the new iPhone will allow you to tap on the part of the photo you want to focus, and it will automatically do so. It will also be adding the ability to automatically handle exposure, white balance and better low-light sensitivity. If you want to get close to a photo subject, say up to 10cm away, the new camera will also have an auto-macro.

iPhone 3G S Compass

With the new iPhone you may always be able to find north, and if you double-tap the screen, it will show you your current orientation, even in the Maps app.

iPhone 3G S Voice Control

Why bother with touching your phone when you can just voice command it? Hold down the home button for a second and you will be prompted to start issuing voice commands which can include making calls, asking your device what song is playing, telling it to find similar songs and so on.


More multimedia functions:

Record video

The new iPhone camera is going to be able to shoot video! The new feature will allow you to record at 30 frames per second (fps) at VGA resolution with audio, auto-focus, auto-white balance and auto-exposure.


Edit video on the go

With the new iPhone you needn’t to wait until you’re at your computer to start editing your mobile movies. You may trim your footage right on iPhone. Just drag to select start and end points on a filmstrip.


Audio playback

iPhone 3G S supports audio formats: AAC, Protected AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, and 4), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV

Video playback

As video files, the iPhone 3G S supported: H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;

H.264 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;

MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.

If you haven’t H.264 or MPEG-4 videos on your computer, you may use Nidesoft DVD to iPhone Converter to convert DVD files into iPhone 3G S compatible formats or use Nidesoft iPhone video converter to convert all other video files into iPhone 3G S, just follow the step by step guide.


Share video anywhere

With the new iPhone 3G S, you may send your video via MMS, or select video from the Camera Roll and let iPhone add it to a new email message. You may also publish videos to YouTube to share your videos.


So, after the comparison, the new iPhone 3G S seems more promising than the iPhone 3.0 to hit the new Palm Pre. Of course, nobody knows the result before it is published, let’s just wait for its official release date of June 19th.

I agree however I won't even be considering it for another year since I'm locked into the existing contract for another year. At least apple released the iphone 3.0 software upgrade. playing with that now actually.


Perhaps you can sell your iPhone and make up the difference?
