Steve Job's keynote presentation at this year's WWDC unveiled the long awaited official details on both the new OS, dubbed iPhone 2.0, and the new iPhone itself, referred to as the iPhone 3G.

Of interest on the gaming front are a few points. First up is a new App Store, which allows 3rd party developers to easily distribute their wares to iPhone owners and includes features like automatic updates. Sega's Super Monkey Ball was demoed, and now features over 100 levels. Pangea Software also demoed some iPhone games, including Enigmo, which makes full use of the touch-screen controls, and Cro-Mag Rally, in which the iPhone's motion sensitivity was used for steering.

The iPhone 3G is now official, and includes long-awaited features like GPS and, of course, 3G support. It's also reportedly slimmer and features improved audio. Of particular note is the new pricing scheme, with the 8GB model going for $199, and the 16GB model going for $299, which will be available in both white and black colors.

iPhone 2.0 will be a free update for current iPhone owners, and $9.99 for iTouch folks. As for the iPhone 3G, the availability date is set for July 11th in 22 countries.
