The recent introduction of a new Apple iPhone, version 4 has only further heightened the consumers desire for anything related to this handset. Its previous incarnation, which is the iPhone 3GS has become one of the bestselling handsets available. It is a unit which offers impressive levels of technology with the added bonus of being able to add numerous additional applications covering a wide variety of subjects from the Apple iStore.
The handset comes with a 3.5 inch TFT touch screen that displays 16 million colours within a 320 x 480 pixel screen size, offering outstanding quality imagery. The unit utilises the multi-touch input method as its means of navigation, whilst the inclusion of both proximity and accelerometer sensors automates a variety of tasks. As a touch screen can be prone to scratches and marks, the inclusion of a scratch resistant surface is a welcome addition.
A multitude of functionality is included within this handset such as the ability to utilise MP3 ringtones as well as downloadable polyphonic tones in addition to vibration alert options. A speakerphone and a 3.5mm headset jack are also included whilst the phone book provides the means to retain practically unlimited numbers of entries.
This particular version of the handset is available in a variety of memory sizes including 8, 16 and 32 GB variations. The unit comes with GPRS and EDGE connections in addition to providing effective web access through the Wi Fi and HSDPA connection. Bluetooth is provided, which is in essence for headset support only.
A 3.15 mega pixel camera is included, with the added bonus of auto focus as well as touch focus provided as standard. Geo-tagging is also an additional extra which is included within the package as well as the alternative of utilising the camera for video capture, with the ability to record at VGA quality and at 30 frames per second.
The handset utilises the iPhone operating system version 3 as well as the ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz processor, to provide a stable and reliable unit. GPS is provided with A-GPS support offering effective satellite navigation.
The Apple iPhone 3G S 8GB, in reality needs no introduction, since its initial inception in June of 2009 it has become a firm favourite with the consumer and justifiably so. The unit encompasses the ethos of Apple, which is to provide a stylish and eminently efficient handset which can be moulded to the users requirements.
