Apple’s next smartphone will be an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary model. Its feature set will be improved, but not dramatically so.

It will have twice the Storage capacity, support for recording and editing video, and a handful of other features, like MMS support. Still,  iPhone 3G S will have much in common with the current version. The outward appearance isn’t significantly different, and the screen resolution will remain the same.

The release of the third-generation iPhone will happen on June 19. There will be two versions: a 16 GB one will sell for $200, while a 32 GB model will go for $300. They will be available in back and white casings.
