Steve Jobs unveiled the 3G iPhone (or iPhone 3G as it’s officially called) at this year’s WWDC event last night, citing the technology as the product’s next challenge.
Apple’s top 22 markets (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US) will get the iPhone 3G on July 11th, with 48 more countries to follow before year-end.
An 8GB iPhone 3G will cost $199 and the 16GB version $299. That compares very favourably to $399 for the original 2.5G 8GB device and $599 for the 16GB 2.5G version.
