The famous American multinational corporation with a focus on designing and manufacturing consumer electronics, Apple has officially announced its highly-anticipated new 3G iPhone, which puts even more features at your fingertips, including fast 3G wireless technology, GPS mapping, and new App Store, allowing users to find applications in every category, from games to business, education to entertainment, finance to health and fitness, productivity to social networking.
“Just one year after launching the iPhone, we’re launching the new iPhone 3G that is twice as fast at half the price,” said Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple. “iPhone 3G supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync right out of the box, runs the incredible third party apps created with the iPhone SDK, and will be available in more than 70 countries around the world this year.”
With new iPhone 2.0 software, iPhone does even more for your enterprise such as support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to provide push email, calendar, and contacts syncing. In addition, it also gives mobile users secure access to corporate resources with Cisco IPSec VPN and wireless network services with WPA2 Enterprise and 802.1X authentication.
“iPhone 3G delivers an amazing 10 hours of talk time on 2G networks and 5 hours using 3G, with up to 5 to 6 hours of web browsing, up to 7 hours for video playback and up to 24 hours for audio playback,” according to the company. “iPhone 3G takes advantage of MobileMe, a new Internet service that pushes email, contacts, and calendars from an online “cloud” to native applications on iPhone, iPod touch, Macs and PCs. With MobileMe email, messages are pushed instantly to iPhone, removing the need to manually check email and wait for downloads, and push keeps contacts and calendars continuously up-to-date so changes made on one device are automatically updated on other devices. With iPhone, you can even snap a photo and post it directly to a MobileMe Gallery to share with friends and family.”
