Luxury Electronics: When Apple released its latest version of the iPhone, the 3GS, it touted it as the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet. If fact, it's the first thing Apple wants you to notice about the new iPhone. In an iPhone 3GS review, you'll notice that applications launch faster and web pages and email attachments load in less time. Apple has also improved the performance of 3D graphics for an unparalleled gaming experience, but that feature is just the tip of the iceberg.

An improved 3-megapixel camera takes better pictures and helps improve focus. Further, you can now shoot and edit VGA video right from the iphone 3GS, and then upload and share with others. The new voice control feature recognizes the names of your contacts and the music in your iPod, allowing you to more easily change a song or make a call, while doing something like driving.

There's a built-in compass for more accurate map and direction finding, and the search feature has also been improved for easier navigation through all the applications in your iPhone. You can now cut and paste words or pictures across multiple platforms and web pages, and you can do it all with the new landscape keyboard option.

In an iPhone 3GS review, one reviewer stated that the iPhone is "still missing the key feature of running multiple programs at once and may have surrendered the lead for consumer interaction to the Palm's new Pre." Consumers debating between the two products might want to think carefully about whether or not the iPhone 3GS is worth the price and AT&T contract.

While the voice control feature is an added benefit, like most programs of this nature, it can be hit or miss, and unfortunately doesn't work with a Bluetooth headset.

The answer to investing in an iPhone 3GS is simple. If you are a die hard fan, then this new iPhone will be the solution that you've been patiently awaiting.
