iPhone 3G: Apple Moves More Into Cellphones

But radio is still not part of the cheaper, newer model.

The big news in the consumer electronics world this week was the iPhone 3G.

Sales start next month, and prices are as low as $199 for an 8 GB model; that’s seen as an important change in affordability that will bring the Apple device to a wider audience.

The New York Times has the story.

Unfortunately the new model does not have radio features.

Radio industry leaders, including David Rehr of NAB, have said in high-profile forums that their goal is to get radio receivers into the design of new gadgets, especially handheld mobile products.
