Faster iPhone With New Features Due Next Week - washingtonpost.com

The computer in your pocket wil be on the market next week. What should we be expecting?

Faster iPhone With New Features Due Next Week - washingtonpost.com: "Apple unveiled the latest version of its popular iPhone, called 3G S, at a trade show for Mac users yesterday in San Francisco. The company, known for using the conference to launch new, often game-changing devices, touted its next-generation iPhone as its fastest-running smartphone yet. The 'S' stands for 'speed,' after all.

Speaking from the stage at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple vice president of worldwide marketing Philip W. Schiller showed how the new iPhone's camera lets users decide what the lens should focus on with the touch of a finger. With a set of voice controls, users can upload an iPhone video to YouTube with a spoken command.

The new device, priced at $199 and $299, will be available at the end of next week, the company said. The more expensive version comes with 32 gigabytes of storage space, a new capacity for the device. The less expensive iPhone has 16 gigabytes.

And the price of last week's cutting-edge model, the iPhone 3G? It's been reduced from $199 to $99.

Tech pundit Tim Bajarin, with Silicon Valley think tank Creative Strategies, said the cheaper, older iPhone should allow Apple to speed up the adoption of the smartphone."
