News about it here:


Recording from iPhonealley's live stream of the Keynote:
Ok here is the link: http://adriels.com/iphonealleyWWDCkeynote2008.mp3
It is still uploading so you will only be able to listen to part of it, when it has finished uploading then you have to re-download it to hear the whole thing.

The quality is pretty bad for the first 2-3mins but gets allot better after that.

Very nice, are there any details out regarding the GPS? i.e does it have its own version like nokia maps or can you install a 3rd party app like MGMaps and used cached maps from google?
I'm wondering also what price we will see in NZ, looking at those amounts in USD I'm guessing around $500-600 here in NZ?

*eagerly awaits Vodafone's price release*

Apple NZ's iPhone page

Funnily enough the "where to buy" for NZ links you to Vodafone.com.au :P

YAY for NZ :) Going to get me one of these lol! Black or White.. hmm

Apple iPhone 3G Ad

Specs look nice, will be interesting to see if battery life lives up to what they say...

Liking the bands supported:
  • UMTS/HSDPA (850, 1900, 2100 MHz)
  • GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
No forward facing camera? no video calling? hmm

edit.. how come this is in the NZComms forum? :P

I am moving this to "Mac OS X Mobile" because "NZ Communications" is for discussion on the new mobile company called "NZ Communications" only.

If it's in line with a comparison between apple.com and apple.co.nz an ipod classic is US$249/NZ$369
If Vodafone can bring it in at NZ$350 or less, Telecom are in for a world of pain.

Does pose a question mark on the pricing of the rest of the ipod touch range though? Pay more and don't have phone capability?

Can't believe both Vodafone NZ and Aus haven't updated their sites!

Downsides:

  • no support for VFs 900MHz UMTS. Not a major problem as it supports 2100, but would be nice to get better building penetration
  • no video calling support (not built in anyway, maybe a 3rd party app could take care of that)
  • no forward facing camera
  • HSDPA only, not HSPA
Will be interesting to see if it is carrier locked. The supported frequecies means it could work on Telecom too when they switch on the GSM/UMTS network.

That is certainly a fantastic pricepoint.

While this product may not offer all of the features that people hoped for and can't be directly compared to a N95 in many aspects it certainly does show a huge pricing disparity between two devices that do have similair target markets.

"The price is a maximum of $199 all around the world -- we're really, really excited about the new iPhone 3G. And as you might expect, we have a new ad! I'd love to show it to you." Lights are down... spy theme.


"The big news, is $399 to $199 -- we think we can check off more affordable."

"We think the iPhone 3G will be affordable to almost everyone. 16GB model for $299 -- for that model we have a white one

"iPhone started off at $599 for an 8GB device, which now sells for $399 -- we want to make it even more affordable. I'm happy to tell you the 8GB model will sell for $199."
