Apple has announced the release of the newest iPhone, the iPhone 3GS.   Visually the iPhone looks the same as the previous 3G version but the 3GS comes loaded with new futures!  For starters, the  new iPhone shoots video and has zoom capabilities.  If battery life was a problem for you apparently the new iPhone 3GS will give you up to 9 hours of Wifi surfing compared to the 3G’s six.

Here’s a break down of the notable features:
–  3 Megapixel sensor
– Video Capture Support 30fps (share via MMS, email, MobileMe and Youtube)
– Support for the faster 7.2 Mbps 3G Standard
– Screen now has ingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
– Built-in compass application which also works with map (shows orientation)
– Voice Control
– Inline Remote for Music Control (you can use iPhone headphones with volume control now)
– Nike + Support
– Improved Battery life (12 hours talk time, 9 hours WiFi, 5 hours on 3G, up to 300 hours standby)
– $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB and $99 for 3G model.

The bad part: “Requires new two-year AT&T wireless service contract, sold separately to qualified customers; credit check required; must be 18 or older. For non-qualified customers, including existing AT&T customers who want to upgrade from another phone or replace an iPhone 3G, the price with a new two-year agreement is $499 (8GB), $599 (16GB), or $699 (32GB).”
