Apple kicks off the Summer of 2009 much the same as it has the previous two summers with a new iPhone. This year, the iPhone 3GS makes its debut and brings with it new hardware, new software and a whole lot more functionality in a vastly changed market. The iPhone may be a polarizing device - it has many fans and many haters - but you can't deny that it is an important device in the world of cell phones. It has had a serious impact on the overall cell phone market. It has forced competitors - such as RIM, Samsung, LG and Nokia, to respond with touch-based devices of their own - all with varying degrees of success.
Is the iPhone 3GS your type? If you view your phone more as a portal to the Web and all that the Web offers when on the go and less of an actual phone, then I say yes.
This year, Phone Scoop is going to focus on what's new with the iPhone 3GS and the new 3.0 operating system.

Review: Apple iPhone 7
Apple's annual iPhone upgrade manages to include some features — water resistance, better cameras, improved battery life — that are worth considering even if you're coming from a newer iPhone. Together with iOS 10, the iPhone 7 is no doubt a powerful addition to the iPhone family.
The catch-phrase that seems to be kicked around is 'no 3rd party multitasking'. Apple's stuff in ROM seems to multita...
The iPhone does do a decent job of pseudo-multitasking. It's not actual multi-tasking, but most apps do load quickly and pick up right where you left off, which is most of what multi-tasking is ...

Ya Missed Some Stuff...
In the inbox, or any mail folder, you can now multi-select messages for deletion, moving to other folders, etc. That's an important new feature readers might like to know about.
You missed the variable-speed advancing through audio files in the media player.
You described the coating on the screen as something to make it smudge-proof. Actually, it's there to make the smudges easily wipe off. Works pretty well. Now, wiping with a sleeve, your pant-let, or a soft cloth actually produces a clean screen instead of just smearing all that grease around.
