Get an instant price for your iPhone 3G 8GB

Following the wild success (6.1 Million units in 12 months) of the iPhone that preceded it. Apple, under the direction of Steve Jobs sought to update its iPhone offering with a phone that was up to the task of the times. With the recent release of 3G Cellular Data technology, the iPhone 3G 8GB was by far the market leader upon release. This is due to many advanced features and a seamless user-experience that could not be found on any of the Android competitors. This was owed to a move by Apple to build their operating system from the ground up, something no other manufacturer had been willing or able to do. The advantage of this was that iOS was streamlined and custom built on top of known hardware, making it much faster.

The hardware it was built onto was no slouch either, with a speedy 412MHz ARM 11 and PowerVR GPU being brought over from the original iPhone 2G, it was able to run applications from the newly released App Store with complete ease.

The two big developments though came in the form of the new 3G/HSDPA cellular data network standard and the introduction of an App Store, which allowed for the downloading of apps developed by third parties.

This was a big move for Apple as previously their ethos was one of ‘keep it closed’ but in the end, it was the right move, as the iPhone 3G 8GB started an App revolution that not only spanned the Apple ecosystem but the entire technology industry. The key part of this was the Apple Software Development Kit (SDK), which is now a staple of any app developer.

The other big move: 3G was a great partner for the App Store as it allowed for reliable downloading of Apps, even when users were not in their own homes.

The 8GB capacity also allowed for the storage of up to 2,000 songs which allowed the iPhone 3G 8GB to be used as an iPod as well as an iPhone.

Not to mention the design and build quality is spectacular and as a result has held up so well that we at Zapper would pay you some quick cash for your iPhone 3G 8GB.
