As many of the rumors suggested, today Steve Jobs took the wraps off a brand new 3G iPhone with built-in GPS and Microsoft Exchange support. And the price? Just $199 for the 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB model. Launch date is July 11th.
Here’s the official 411 from Apple.com. Very, very cool.
As Monday rolls along, there are two storylines unfolding today. One, a gruesome situation in Weleetka, where two girls were found dead last night. Latest word is they were shot.
The Oklahoman has reporters, photographers and I have newly hired Tim Money at the scene to provide coverage.
The other storyline is the expected announcement of a new iPhone by Steve Jobs at the WWDC 2008 keynote.
You can find live blogging on numerous sites today:
From the Mobile Crunch site, here are a few rumors about the potential future of the Apple iPhone.
With seven days to go before WWDC, the 3G iPhone rumor mill is pretty much on fire. Some of the rumors are pretty bonkers, but most of the more popular ones are pretty darn reasonable.
Apple Inc.’s iPhone, a new model of which is widely expected this summer, took 19.2 percent of the U.S. market for “smart” phones in the first quarter of 2008, according to research firm IDC’s vendor survey.
Impressive, but that’s down.
I’m just looking forward to next month’s announcement from Apple and hoping there’s a new version that’s cool. Blogs are indicating new colors if nothing else, aside from the expected 3G.
For those of us who love our iPhones, here’s some news:
A new iPhone is coming, no surprise, but with rebates its price is reduced to $200 (8gb) or $300 (16gb).
When the 3G iPhone is introduced this summer, AT&T, the exclusive U.S. iPhone sales partner with Apple, will cut the price by as much as $200, according to a person familiar with the strategy.

Nope, both on their iPhones.
