Apple's widely anticipated unveiling of a new-and-improved iPhone today gives small accessory and software makers just a few weeks to get new chargers, docks, and applications to market.

The centerpiece of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco this week, the announcement by Apple CEO Steve Jobs proved many early rumors true -- the new iPhone will be faster and about half the price of the original, with an eight-gigabyte version priced at $199.

Beyond design specs, a host of new applications clearly aims at attracting business users, including access to corporate email and other collaborative tools via Microsoft Exchange.

Jobs said the new iPhone will be available July 11.
