The Apple iPhone 3G S is now Nike+ compatible...

Two years ago, I wrote a small piece on this very blog about standing in line at Bellevue Square to get my hands on the first generation Apple iPhone, and my first question was whether or not the iPhone was Nike+ compatible.

Two years and several million iPhones later, Apple finally listened and announced Monday that the Apple iPhone 3G S that releases Friday June 19th will indeed be Nike+ compatible.

iPhone 3G S also features built-in Nike + iPod support making it an incredible workout companion. Users simply place the optional Nike + iPod sensor ($19) in their Nike + shoe to seamlessly connect with iPhone 3G S to track miles run or sync with the latest generation gym equipment.

Just slip the Nike + iPod Sensor into your Nike+ compatible shoe and start your workout. Since the functionality is now built into the phone, this eliminates the need to plug in the receiver.

If you are a track coach, you now have the ability to shoot video with the new iPhone 3G S.

iPhone 3G S features a new 3 megapixel autofocus camera that takes amazing pictures and video, making it easier than ever to capture, edit and share those moments instantly with family and friends. The new autofocus camera adjusts focus, exposure, color and contrast for the best possible image and includes an automatic macro focus for extra close up shots. With the new “tap to focus” feature, you simply touch the display to select an object or area of interest and the camera automatically re-adjusts focus and exposure.

You can record incredible high-quality video clips and edit them right on your iPhone 3G S by simply trimming the start and stop points. With iPhone 3G S you can send photos and video by email or MMS and post them to MobileMe™ or YouTube with just one tap.
