Apple announces new 3G iPhone, releases Snow Leopard, Safari 4 and Macbooks are updated!

Well, now that Apple's WWDC is over, its time to look at what Apple has delivered. Certainly, everyone was expecting a new iPhone and we weren't disappointed, though the cut-down version didn't appear. Instead we got a faster version of the existing 3G iPhone and announcements of price cuts in the current line-up. Welcome nevertheless. The new version is meant to be faster and has the much requested improved camera with the ability to shoot video. This is certain to strengthen Apple's position and in all probability will increase market share.

As regards that other expected announcement, we had more news on Snow Leopard. Coming in September it is the upgarde that everyone (except maybe Microsoft!) has been waiting for. At the ame time we had news of the Server version.

Missing was new of the so-called Media Tablet. Whether we ever see such an appliance remains only specualtion. In the meantime we have updates to the Macbook Pro range of laptops, a welcome boost to the range. Starting at £899, the range has plenty to offer. Still, its disappointing that a yet. Apple doesn't have anything to compete with the cheaper end of the market. Personally, I could sell truckloads of a smaller Apple laptop that came in below £500. Many people I deal with would love to buy an Apple laptop but te price put them off. Instead they end up buying an inferior WinPC laptop that costs more than £450 less than the cheapest Apple! Its time to repond to the pent-up demand Apple... so come Steve, get your finger out!
