That all said, there are new things on this phone. Here are the major items:
- Storage— The new iPhone 3GS comes in both 16GB or 32GB of storage. A nice bump.
- Guts — iPhone sports a faster processor and a 7.2Mbps HSDPA-compatible radio.
- Camera — The old 2 megapixel sensor has been bumped up to 3.2 megapixels and there’s still no flash. Apple also added auto-focus, better night vision and geotagging support. This is a very nice addition, though it ranks on the low end of telephone cameras.
- Video — This phone is all about video — 30fps video recording, video editing, video sharing… Yay.
- Compass — Yep, north be that way folks. Yay.
- Battery life — 5 hours of 3G talk time and up to 24 hours of music playback — according to Apple at least. YMMV
- OS — Tethering is now covered, though we still don’t know how AT&T will handle it, and the Find My iPhone feature is available to everyone, not just enteprises, yet is only available to MobileMe subscribers. Oh and turn-by-turn nav is game on… TomTom was on hand at the keynote to demonstrate its iPhone app/accessory combo.
