That's right people, the iPhone 2.0 is here. What's more, it seems this time they might really have a winner ! The new is not only believed to be a slick 2x faster but also far cheaper. Because for all the features it packs the cost is a measly 199$ - and that's with the 8GB of storage ! Throw in another 100 bucks and you'll be the proud owner of a 16GB iPhone - in white - i'm lovin' it !
The iPhone 3G -- for third-generation mobile networks -- is designed for faster Internet download and longer talk times, and takes advantage of the high-speed network to provide GPS mapping built in with map data loadable over the wifi as well, according to Jobs. That's sure to take on the likes of the N95ers.
Attacks on the BlackBerry include, but are not limited to, the 2nd generation software allowing business users to send and receive Microsoft Exchange email.
Moreover the 16GB iPhone also has a color selection of Apple's favorite White theme with a price tag of 299$.
Another note on the form factor is that Apple has made a subtle change to the design that has allowed it to much more elegantly hide it's slightly higher thickness over the old iPhone. They've done this by thinning out the edges a bit ore than usual. Personally, I think it'll make the phone feel bulkier when you're holding it although it'll seem thinner at sight. But who cares when it's the iPhone you're holding !!!!!!!!!

Update from Engadget: Just bought an iPhone? Listen up: "Customers who purchased a 2.5G iPhone on or after May 27 and want to swap it out for a new iPhone will be able to do so without incurring an additional handset charge for the new device. They will of course need to turn in their 2.5G iPhone." And for the rest of you, AT&T says there's no way to buy it without agreeing to a contract. So sorry. More details here.
