The iPhone 3G is Apple’s second iPhone model. It builds on the success of the first-generation iPhone and adds a number of new features to the device. One key addition is 3G wireless connectivity, an improved data standard that makes downloads nearly twice as fast as on the original iPhone.
The iPhone 3G is also significantly less expensive than the original model, debuting at $199 for the 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB model, where the 16GB model of the original version cost $399.
Like the first-generation iPhone, the iPhone 3G sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen and runs Mac OS X, Apple’s desktop operating system.
