The first iPhone wasn’t perfect, but he became the prototype for the concept of future smart phones. As the first version of the operating system iPhone OS was used.
Less than a year, as the company unveils its next smartphone. iPhone 3G goes on the world market, are Russian residents had the opportunity to purchase the device on its territory from official suppliers. In the list of principal new features — updated case design, support GPS navigation, 3G networks.
