The first iPhone 3G unboxing photos have appeared on an iPhonePortugal.com forum. The iPhone 3G box appears quite similar to that of the original iPhone, made from hard, black cardboard with a top that lifts off to offer access to the phone, manual, and included accessories. The iPhone itself is presented in a black tray, as opposed to the clear plastic tray that came with the original, and both the new SIM card removal tool and slim new charger are pictured, as well. In addition to the unboxing photos, a brief gallery of an iPhone 3G in-store display and demo unit have been posted by Swiss site Gadget O’ Mac. The iPhone 3G will go on sale this Friday, June 11.
