The next iPhone, the iPhone 3GS, will be available June 19, 2009. It will have twice the speed for browsing, a video camera, 32 Gigabytes of storage and voice control.
Techcrunch notes that upgrading from an existing iPhone to the iPhone 3GS would be suckers bet.
IPhone 3GS details at the Apple site.
* Voice Control recognizes the names in your Contacts and knows the music on your iPod. So if you want to place a call or play a song, all you have to do is ask.
* The first thing you’ll notice about iPhone 3G S is how quickly you can launch applications. Web pages render in a fraction of the time, and you can view email attachments faster. Improved performance and updated 3D graphics deliver an incredible gaming experience, too. In fact, everything you do on iPhone 3G S is up to 2x faster and more responsive than iPhone 3G.
*Now you can shoot video, edit it, and share it — all on your iPhone 3G S. Shoot high-quality VGA video in portrait or landscape
*Cut, copy, and paste words and photos, even between applications. Copy and paste images and content from the web, too. [so perhaps blogging from the iPhone will be practical?]
* With a built-in digital compass, iPhone 3G S can point the way. Use the new Compass app, or watch as it automatically reorients maps to match the direction you’re facing
* The new 3-megapixel camera takes great still photos, too, thanks to built-in autofocus and a handy new feature that lets you tap the display to focus on anything (or anyone) you want.
