About Apple iPhone 3G 8GB Mobile Phone

As is the general rule with Apple, the iPhone 3G is the next step forward in evolution for the iPhone series, improving upon the previous model’s imperfections and building on its strengths. However, when you bring in new technologies there’s always the chance of encountering new errors. Microsoft Exchange and MobileMe support are welcome additions, but the iPhone 3G needs improvements on its GPS and battery life.

The iPhone 3G is Apple’s second generation mobile phone, sitting in the middle of the evolutionary cycle between the original iPhone and the third-generation iPhone 3GS. As far as smartphones go in general, the iPhone 3G has standard hardware you’d expect from a top-level device. You get Tri-band 3G HSDPA and Assisted GPS (A-GPS), but for some reason there’s only a basic 2-megapixel camera, which of course was updated to 3-megapixels in the newer iPhone 3GS.
