Apple CEO Steve Jobs on Monday celebrated the iPhone's one-year birthday a few weeks early by unveiling a cheaper and faster version of the device that is part phone and part mini-computer.

The widely anticipated announcement of a 3G iPhone - dubbed 3G for AT&T's "third generation" network - at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco was greeted with the kind of enthusiasm found at rock concerts. The new iPhone will be available July 11 in the United States and 21 other countries for as low as $199, down from $399. When the original model was released June 29 last year, it cost $599.

In announcing the cheaper 8 gigabyte iPhone, Jobs acknowledged that its biggest hurdle in becoming a mainstream product has been the high price. A 16GB iPhone will sell for $100 more. Analysts expect the device could one day become as popular as Apple's iPod digital music player. Jobs also drew wild cheers when he announced the new version will come with a global positioning system.

By year's end, the iPhone will be will be sold in 70 countries, Jobs said.

"It's not just for the alpha geeks. It's not just for the truly committed. It's for normal people," company Vice President Greg Joswiak said in an interview.

With the price cut and Apple's dramatic global market expansion, the company should have little problem meeting its goal of selling 10 million iPhones, some analysts said.

While the faster version and new applications being written for the iPhone are important, 'they are all evolutionary," said Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. "The big game changer is the price. This will make their estimates for calendar '08 look like a lay-up."

The iPhone price slash is part of a new deal between Apple and AT&T, the iPhone's exclusive carrier in the United States. AT&T has agreed to subsidize the cost of the phone. Under the agreement, though, AT&T will no longer give Apple a share of its revenue from data-usage plans. The phone company said it expects the gadget's reduced price to fuel sales that require a two-year service contract and generate increased revenue from data-usage plans, resulting in increased earnings per share by 2010.

In an apparent effort to prevent users from "unlocking" the device so they can use it with other carriers, AT&T said the iPhone can now only be purchased with an activated service plan. Previously, consumers could buy it in stores or online and activate it online later.

The new iPhone is aimed at alleviating another complaint users have made about the device: its data transmission is too slow in accessing the Web. Jobs said the 3G iPhone will be twice as fast as the current version.

"It's amazingly zippy," Jobs said.

He also said the upgraded device, which he said described as 'thinner at the edges," will have a battery that is maximized for the 3G network. Jobs revealed a number of comparisons showing how Apple will be able to maximize battery power despite the strain from the faster network. Whereas 2G talk time was 10 hours, Jobs said 3G talk time will be an industry leading standard of five hours. He also said the 3G phone would get five to six hours of Web browsing, seven hours of video and 24 hours for audio usage.

The conference kicked off with a glimpse of the emerging iPhone ecosystem of applications being created by independent developers. Some 250,000 software writers have downloaded the tools Apple offered up in March that will allow them to create new features for the device. A range of new applications, from sophisticated games to social mapping services and even almost real-time updates of major league baseball games have been created for the iPhone.

The applications will be available on Apple's soon-to-launch App Store, which is expected to be ready on or around July 11 and will resemble the Cupertino company's iTunes online music and video store. The store will be included on every new iPhone and on older iPhone models once users download the soon-to-be-released iPhone 2.0 software update, which will also include the ability to sync the device with Microsoft Exchange.

Apple expects there will be "hundreds" of applications initially offered through its App Store, and that will only grow, Joswiak said.

Tim Bajarin, president of technology research firm Creative Strategies, said the iPhone is increasingly defying a simple category.

"They are redefining the concept of a handset," he said. "The iPhone is a personal mobile computer. That is really what it is."

It's so nice, but it's...I don't know, it's like the iPod, everyone wants one, it becomes the symbol of hipness and 'individualness' but then it suddenly becomes too common, and everyone tries to act as if they have one.

Does the 'white earphones on mobile phones' come to mind? While the iPhone may be the in-thing, it really really really is nice to look at. It might also become a high profile target of abuse and 'kidnapping.'

Tell that to my brother. I got him a nice handphone as a birthday present. That was stolen. I got him an iPod nano since he kept pestering and that was stolen.

It's not about too much exposure. True, the more you expose, the more likely it is going to be stolen, but even then, showing it once would give it unwanted attention. Considering anything 'i' is in, some people would be desperate enough to grab your bag just for the iStuff.

Back on to the iPhone topic, I'd say they'd only sell it in the authorized Apple stores. Something also tells me Celcom might be vying for the exclusive rights. I could be wrong, but Vodafone has the exclusive rights, among other carriers, and Celcome is quite closely linked to Vodafone, i.e. BlackBerry service.

Huh? maybe your brother should earn the money & buy it with his own money. then he will feel the "pinch" & the sting in the heart when it's stolen. otherwise, there's no way people gonna cherish the thing they got so easily... this is call responsiblility, have him take out the trash for 1 dollar each time, then if he got enough "bloody hard earned money", buy the ipod for him. i think he will be pissed off the next time his ipoot get stolen. if he give up half way, then need more character building lo. . .
