3G iPhone coming 11 July

Apple has recently announced that the 3G iPhone is coming to Australia and New Zealand in July 2008.

In business you can’t afford to be inefficient or not have up to the date information, and the iPhone is not only an ideal alternative to Blackberry or Palm based solutions, but it is much better. With the advent of “3G”, or essentially broadband capabilities, this phone will be a very attractive choice for both individuals and businesses in the second half of 2008.
