>> Alright hey, Jeff Bakalar here at the Apple Store at 5th Avenue, New York City here with Joz. He's gonna tell us about some of the new features of the iPhone 3G.
>> Well the iPhone 3G is first of all, it's got 3G. And that's one of things I think has got a lot of people have been anticipating that. It gives you the ability to browse the net faster, get your email faster. They've also added GPS, so you can find your location with a satellite. We're inside here, so actually GPS isn't much of an indoor technology. It's an outdoor technology. But we've got other ways to find you with the iPhone as well. So it's able to pick up our Wi-Fi connection here and knew exactly where the store was. And if it couldn't find GPS or Wi-Fi, it can use the cell towers. It gives you a lot of ways to find yourself. You know, 'cause we have a new enclosure here. This is made out of plastic and the reason for that is because of adding things like 3G and GPS. We all have 10 radios in here, and the plastic allows the reception to be just fantastic. And we're given here the ability to hook up to your work email, you know now, so we can connect to exchange. So you can get direct push email, contacts, calendars, as soon as something changes at work, instantly reflected on to the iPhone. And then of course what's got people really excited is a new App Store. So, we have a new application store launch with over 500 applications that allow you to really take the capabilities of the iPhone and take it to places we could never ever dream of that our application developers can take it with their imagination. So, all kinds of great new applications, and of course the more affordable price at 199 dollars.
>> Is there anything else, big features?
>> There's lots of other little features that we add that you know--kind of things that kinda surprise and delight our customers. You know we've given contact search. They could search for a name or company. You can even take a screenshot now. You just press the home button. In the top button you see I got that little flash. That actually takes the screenshot. And if I go over to my photos application, well you see as I have in my camera roll now, I was able to take a screenshot of the image at the time. So, that's kinda one of those little features that's kinda nice. We do it--Again, lots of little things that quick customers gonna find and really love about the iPhone. You know GPS as I mentioned, also do GPS tracking, so walking down the street or so, where you're going and you can follow the directions to where you need to be.
>> Excellent. Well thank you very much, Joz. It's been a pleasure and good luck with everything.
