Should iPhone 3G owners spring for iPhone 3G S?

“Craving the new iPhone 3G S? Apple’s newest baby will be faster than ever and offer yet more functionality.,” Erika Morphy writes for MacNewsWorld. “If you are already an iPhone 3G devotee, the upgrade will likely cost you US$399. If you’ve been cannily waiting in the wings for the last few years — expecting that Apple would continue to upgrade its mobile device while dropping the price — it will cost you a mere $199 or $299, depending on the version you choose. That is, of course, if you opt for a two-year service contract with AT&T. Without it, get ready to plunk down an additional $400.”

“iPhone owners can, of course, pay the contract cancellation fee of $175 and start up again with a new contract and subsidized phone. A little simple math, though, shows savings would be minimal,” Morphy writes.

“So, what extras will the iPhone 3G S provide to take some of the sting out of the price tag? It will boast extra speed, and it will have a built-in compass, as well as video recording and voice control software,” Morphy writes. “It will also come with the next operating system upgrade preloaded. However, that upgrade will be available to all iPhone models, not just the iPhone 3G S.”
