CNET News Video: iPhone gets 3G, GPS

2:32 /

At WWDC 2008, CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 3G, provided a peek at lots of third-party applications, and unveiled a new service called MobileMe. Did Apple fans get everything they wanted? CNET's Molly Wood offers an overview of Jobs' keynote address.

>> [ music ] ^m00:00:03 Hi I'm Molly Wood from CNET dot com here at Apple's worldwide developer conference 2008. Steve Jobs has just finished giving the key note address where we saw the introduction of a brand new iPhone. It will feature 3G and GPS, and of course since this is a developer's conference we also got a peak at some of the software that will be running on that iPhone in the future. Let's take a look. ^m00:00:24 [ music ] ^m00:00:30 >> And today we're introducing the iPhone 3G. [ cheering ] >> First the moment everyone was waiting for; the iPhone finally got 3G and with it faster data speed. >> The 3G version downloads in 5 seconds and the Edge version in 18 seconds; that is 3 point 6 times faster on the 3G version. >> A few moments later, it also got GPS. >> And here we are driving down Lumbar Street and we can actually track as we move using GPS. So it's kind of fun. >> Then the iPhone got a whole lot cheaper. >> For 199. ^m00:01:10 [ cheering ] ^m00:01:13 At just a 199 dollars, we think the iPhone 3G's gonna be affordable to almost everyone. And that's for the 8 gig model, the 16 gig model just 299. >> Early in the key note, Steve Jobs touted the enterprise support built into the iPhone 2 point 0 software and showed off some other improvements. >> Everything everybody's asked for built in and we've gotten tremendous feedback from Enterprise users that we are on exactly the right track and we know we can now check off Enterprise support. >> Apple exec Steve Forstall introduced a string of developers to show off some of the third party apps that will be available on the iPhone. Apparently it can even turn you into a brain surgeon. >> I learned 5 new brain terms this morning while I was waiting in line for my latte. >> And Jobs announced a replacement service for dot mac called mobile me. >> An email gets sent to me in my mobile me account, it immediately gets pushed to all my devices; my phone, my computers, all have the latest email. >> iPhone fans didn't get everything on their wish list. For example, Steve Jobs did not announce video capture, multimedia messaging, or a flash back camera but we'll see what they think of the price drop when the iPhone comes out on July 11. [ cheering ] Reporting for CNET dot com, I'm Molly Wood. [ music ]
