    Via Engadget's WWDC coverage:

    It's been a long, leak-filled wait, but Apple finally took the wraps off its 3G iPhone. Thinner edges, full plastic back, flush headphone jack, and the iPhone 2.0 firmware -- Apple's taking a lot of the criticisms to heart from the first time around. Obviously 3G is at the forefront, but they're also making sure it's available all over internationally, works with enterprises, runs 3rd party apps... and does it all for cheaper. Apple claims its 3G speeds trounce the competition, with pageloads 36% faster than the N95 and Treo 750 -- and of course it completely trounces the old EDGE data. Battery life isn't getting put out to pasture though, with 300 hours of standby, 8-10 hours of 2G talk, 5 hours of 3G talk, 7 hours of video and 24 hours of audio. GPS is also a go. Apple is using A-GPS, which supplements regular satellite GPS data with info from cellular towers. WiFi data is also worked into the mix, which should give users a pretty solid lock on where the heck they are on this planet. Unfortunately, there's no front-facing cam, which syncs with what we were hearing, but is still a little disappointing. Apple hopes to launch in 70 countries this year. 8GB is available for $199, 16GB for $299 -- and the 16GB comes in white. Apple will be hitting the 22 biggest markets, including the US, on July 11th.

    Consider me buying one!

    Not surprisingly, the release of the iPhone in Canada will still not occur until some time in the fall (Sept or Oct...).

    I've given up on the thing and will probably go by way of the Nokia N95 or the 96.

    THe 3G is going to be a lot faster then the previous model. 3G is suppose to be almost 3 times faster then EDGE, but then, of course the plans are going to be expensive.

    Here are the cost of the plans (per month):
    -$40 data plan (Internet)
    -$30 Phone service (Make calls)
    -$20 Unlimited Text

    This pretty much equals up to 90 dollars a month. Apple was just being smart, I don't think the price has changed at all, they just reduced the phone price, and jacked up the service cost.
