Apple says 3G iPhone for ’08, current iPhone gets TV out?

Apple says 3G iPhone for '08, current iPhone gets TV out?Following the "Mum is no longer the word" Apple press event held in Europe, a couple pieces of interesting information floated to the top of the disappointing mess.

Apple announced a European iPhone will finally hit UK stores on November 9th, but the Apple phone will unfortunately maintain 2G EDGE data connectivity, a huge disappointment since the technology can be frustratingly slow much of the time. Apple didn’t announce anything specific for Germany or France yet, but the recent leaked T-Mobile ad says the iPhone is dated for November in Germany as well. Apple also didn’t leave us entirely hanging on the much anticipated 3G version of the iPhone.

Pocket-lint reports Apple will release a 3G iPhone in 2008 citing Apple CEO jobs when he said, "You can expect a 3G iPhone later next year." Then when all was said and done, something interesting happened. Engadget had a chance to get "hands on" session with the UK iPhone and took many pictures in the process.

One picture of a settings menu stood out in particular as it listed TV-out options, mainly the option to turn widescreen "on" or "off" and the ability to choose a TV signal, "NTSC" or "PAL". A TUAW reader pointed out Apple’s slip with the iPhone, which is running an unreleased firmware version. It should be very likely that we see TV-out coming to current iPhone models and maybe even iPod Touch models soon.
