It will have more features and functionality (including some that should have been available since day one), but more importantly will be up to 2x faster and have a longer battery life. Also, the base level 8GB iPhone 3G will see a price drop to $99. In addition, the long-anticipated iPhone 3.0 OS will become available on June 17th.
