So what about ‘Version 2’ of the iPhone? Apple-Insider recently reported that a mobile carrier in Sweden will introduce the first 3G driven iPhone, as soon as January, 2008. But there is no guarantee that the 3G version of the iPhone will be available in the United States anytime soon. So keep tuned as it is only a matter of time. The idea of a broadband, high-speed internet or iTunes screaming through your iPhone is an tantalizing thought. So be patient.
Recently, Randall Stephenson, an AT&T CEO stated that the 3G iPhone will be available sometime in 2008. No details were given on the exact date, but he did say that Apple is in the development phase. The primary reason why the iPhone did not originally have 3G was because of the poor battery life of the iPhone. Other manufacturers, such as Sony Ericsson has this battery issue solved and offers 3G, so its just a matter of time.
