About iPhone 3G
Regarding internal hardware, the next iPhone was almost identical to the original iPhone when it came to processing power, battery life, and its camera. However, like its name suggests, iPhone 3G was the first iPhone to support 3G cellular networking. It was also the first iPhone with GPS. But, that’s not all. Apple decided to listen to its customers and give the people what they wanted most: An App Store.
Apple marketed it as “the first phone to beat the iPhone.” The iPhone 3G came in two colors (black and white) and was priced at $199/$299 (half the price of the original iPhone $399/$499).
