Apple updates iPhone to 3G S model on June 19

Just a quickie sandwiched in-between the Palm Pre chatter. As predicted by many, Apple today announced the iPhone 3G S, a new model which adds a faster processor, faster 3G data transfer speeds, an upgraded, 3 megapixel camera with video recording & editing, voice control and digital compass, available Friday, June 19 for $199 (16 GB) or $299 (32 GB). And hey, from the outside it’s exactly the same as the current model, which means all of your cases, screen protectors and accessories will get another year’s worth of value for a change.

Also announced was the availability of iPhone OS 3.0 next Wednesday, June 17… which will certainly mark an unbearable 48 hours of waiting for me, since my current iPhone 3G is happily jailbroken & unlocked, and I want to keep it as such so I can sell it on eBay, or possibly to one of my wife’s friends in Ukraine, and subsidize some of the $499 I’ll have to pay for upgrading to the new model, since I’m only halfway through the 2-year contract from last year. (Bah!)

Kudos to Apple for the new model, and for not making us wait until July to get our hands on OS 3.0… that would have killed me. LOL
