iPhone 3G: Apple Moves More Into Cellphones

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

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.
