UPDATE: Release date confirmed by Maxis. iPhone 3GS will be officially released here on the 31st July 2009. Pre orders yours now!
While not Microsoft related, I had to write this article as it would please any tech enthusiast in the country. Yesterday during the Apple WorldWide Developers Conference at San Francisco, Apple unveiled the next iPhone which will be released in the States in another 10 days (19th June). Touted as a new iPhone which will run 2x faster than the previous gen device, iPhone 3GS is set to make waves worldwide where it will be released in about 80 countries by August 2009.
The best part of the news is that Malaysia will be part of it. Together with Maxis (should most probably be them as they are the telco provider for the current iPhone 3G), the phone should be released on 19th July 2009 (Mark your calendars!), one month after the US release. So far, the only concrete details unveiled is that there will be an in-built compass, better camera (3.0MP), higher speed HSDPA, better battery life as well as voice control and video recording which was not available in the previous gen iPhone. Processor speed is still unknown as Apple is coy about it.
Update (9/7/09): iPhone 3GS Page added by Maxis. Details here.
