As expected, Apple's third incarnation of their revolutionary iPhone was announced today at the 2009 WWDC. Though the iPhone announcement followed big, exciting news about new Macbook models and a whirling overview of Snow Leopard, like you, it was the iPhone 3GS grit we were waiting for. After a short session of back-patting about the success of the iPhone AppStore and in-depth overview of the new iPhone OS 3.0, Apple dished out the goods on the new iPhone model.
Phil Schiller announced the new iPhone 3GS as a "really fast iPhone", and then offered up supporting benchmarks that show the new iPhone 3GS as roughly 2x faster than the iPhone 3G model, across most applications.
Schiller also confirmed the presence of 7.2Mbps HSDPA support and gave an in-depth overview of the new 3 megapixel camera in the iPhone 3GS. The new camera offers exciting features such as macro photo taking as close as 10cm from your subject, tap-to-focus
