The iPhone 3GS is Back; And Widget City Got a Pretty Great Deal for You! [Updated]

Well, oh well. Who would have thought Apple will bring some more iPhone 3GS in stores? Certainly not me, neither you. Right? Regardless of what this Cupertino phone maker is trying to do, one thing is for sure – that is, luring Pinoy techies with an iPhone that ain’t really that too heavy on the pocket. Or should I just say “very much affordable iPhone” for the Pinoys? Anyhow, it doesn’t matter for us why it’s back; what matters is the iPhone 3GS is here once again, available in shops somewhere in the country’s gadget zones.

For those who have less idea (yet) about the iPhone 3GS, it’s Apple’s 3rd generation smartphone released in 2009. So it’s basically 2 generations older from its successors, the iPhone 4 (2010) and iPhone 4S (2011). This iPhone 3GS that’s hitting in stores again though is the 8GB version, which is the very first version of the 3GS model that hit the market 3 years ago. Talking about the hardware, it’s powered by an ARM Cortex A8 processor ticking at 600MHz, a PowerVR graphics processor, and 256MB of memory. Out of the box, the iPhone 3GS is loaded with iOS 5 (Apple’s firmware) and can later be upgraded to iOS 6 once it officially comes out. Though I couldn’t say that you’ll get the best experience on this iPhone model on iOS 6, it does fair with iOS 5, except when you’re running memory and processor-intensive applications. Nevertheless, I believe it still worth for its suggested retail price of Php 14,990.
