iPhone 3GS Announced at 2009 WWDC With Video Camera

Introducing the iPhone 3G S!

And the news we've all been waiting for, ladies and gents! The brand-spankin' new, third-generation iPhone: the iPhone 3GS.

The iPhone 3G S looks externally exactly like the iPhone 3G — same dimensions, same availability on black and white — but inside, it's a whole different story.

The first thing you want to know: yes, the iPhone 3GS can take video. The camera supports still and video capture — you just have a record button now. You can also scrub through and edit video directly from the camera!

The still camera itself is beefed up too — it's now working with 3 megapixels, autofocus, auto white balance, and auto macro. They've added low-light sensitivity, and a biggie: tap-to-focus, which lets you tap on a subject in your lens that you want to focus on, and it'll blur the background.

Besides the awesome new camera features, the new iPhone is also coming with better battery life, Nike+ support, and Voice Control. Voice control is amazing — it not only lets you say the name of your contacts to call them, but it also works with your iTunes so you can listen to specific songs, start your favorite playlists, and even tell it to "hear more songs like this" when combined with the iTunes Genius Playlist.

The new iPhone 3GS will come in white or black, in 16GB and 32GB flavors, and will cost you $199 and $299, respectively. But for all you late adopters, Apple is making it easier for you to enter their world by offering the current 8GB iPhone 3G model for only $99. When is all this happening? The $99 pricing for the 3G begins today, and the iPhone 3GS comes out June 19.
