Today at WWDC ’08, Apple announced the iPhone 3G.

Available on July 11th at a price of $199 for an 8G model and $299 for the 16G, the new iPhone features 3G data (twice as fast as EDGE), built-in true GPS, and enterprise support. Battery life is improved, with 300 hours of standby time, 10 hours of 2G talk time, 5 hours of 3G talk time, 5-6 hours of 3G browsing, 7 hours of video, or 24 hours of audio.

The new iPhone has a black plastic back and solid metal buttons (for the 8G model) or an available white back on the 16G model. The display and camera are the same, with the headphone jack now being flush with the top of the phone, and audio is improved.

Update: The WWDC Keynote Speech is now online.
