Apple iPhone 3G

Buy the iPhone on O2: Apple | O2 store | Carphone Warehouse

OK, so you're wondering what all hype is about? Basically, the iPhone now has 3G support. It's exactly the same - but just has faster internet, oh and built in GPS!

In fact, the iPhone 3G is bigger, but lighter than it's 2G predecessor. The casing has changed, and how you can also buy it in white to show your fasionista superiority. There's probably no point in buying it though if you've already got the 2G, as there's sure to be a successor come 2009 (editor's note: yes, which is the iPhone 3GS).

It's not faster, nor is it much better - the sole change is added GPS and 3G support. Is it worth buying one? Probably not. Will you? Well, probably!
