Apple Computer today launched a 3G version of its iPhone device. Steve Jobs, the Apple Chief Executive Officer, announced the development at a developers' conference, where he promoted the iPhone by saying that, “just one year after launching the iPhone, we’re launching the new iPhone 3G that is twice as fast at half the price.”

Apple has claimed that the 3G iPhone will provide internet access at double the speed of the internet access provided by the previous versions.

The price for the iPhone has also been reduced to $199 in the US, with prices in other countries equal or below that of within the US.

For several months there has been speculation among Apple fans about the launch of a 3G iPhone.
