Compare iPhone 3G 16GB Deals

As the name suggests, the iPhone 3G with 16GB memory in dramatic black, offers access to the faster 3G wireless network (than EDGE’s 2.5G), Microsoft Exchange server e-mail and support for an array (around 35,000) of third-party software from the iPhone App Store. In most respects, it is identical to the original iPhone, although the silver rim is thinner and there is silver mesh behind the speaker.

At 3.5 inches and 480x320 pixels, the display is the same size as its predecessor, but displays slightly more dots per inch (163 vs.160). It still delivers brilliant colours, sharp graphics and fluid movements.

The Safari Web browser consistently delivers speeds of about 300 Kbps to 500 Kbps (dependent on network performance) - Google and Yahoo are even built into it - and can be viewed widescreen. You can make calls simply by tapping the touch- sensitive interface and syncs your contacts from your laptop. Visual voicemail allows you listen to messages in whichever order you like - just like your emails.

Naturally, the iPhone 3G/16 GB supports all major music formats, playing music, videos, podcasts and audio books with alacrity, enabling file transfers directly from a PC via iTunes. The camera, however, remains a disappointing 2 megapixel affair and there is no video recording.

Battery life is rated at up to eight hours’ talk time and 250 hours on standby from a full charge.
