    I looooooooove this upgrade for the new iPhone. The casing didn't change, but the inside sureee did!

    256 MB of Ram
    600 MHZ processor
    32 GB hard drive
    3 MB camera with autofocus
    7.2 MBits
    Bluetooth 2.1
    Video camera

    I don't see why people are complaining. The new iPhone is WAYYYYY faster and better in the inside.(This is all that matters when launching applications/playing video games)

    In my opinion, Apple gave us nearly EVERYTHING we wanted! Copy and Paste, MMS, Tethering, Landscape, video camera, new camera w/autofocus, more ram, faster processor, 32GB....whewwww!

    Apple is SURE getting my $399 next week!!!!

    Oh and I forgot one MAJOR thing: Better battery life!

    It is DEFINITELY not a minor upgrade! Its nothing but some of the 3G people complaining because they cannot get the new iPhone for 199/299. If they could, they would be FIRST in line!

    EXACTLY, I don't understand why people complain about it being the same if they are going to put a case on it to make it ugly anyways.
    If the design change then they are still going to put a case on to make it look different.

    No complaints from me. I bought the first iPhone and 3g. I bought the 3g on launch day and received subsidized pricing. All other phones I had to wait for eligibility in order to upgrade. This shouldbe no different in my opinion. I preordered a 32gb 3gs for delivery and can't wait. $499 is fair if you ask me. Plus I can sell my current iPhone to recoupe most of the cost.

    Not to start any kind of argument, but how does that compare to the Pre's specs?

    This phone is just going to feel so much nicer to use across the board. Everything will respond and load quicker. The touch screen will feel a lot more responsive (because the CPU will pay more attention to it). The browser will be phenomenal (given these hardware upgrades plus the better Webkit code). I CANT WAIT!

    But, but, but, but, there is no matte finish so its still a minor upgrade.

    /end_sarcasm

    In all seriousness, this is a GREAT find, and I cannot wait to get my 3G S, especially since I busted my 3G. I cannot wait. Especially since it arrives the day after my bday!

    My black 32GB can't get here soon enough. Well I haven't ordered it yet. Maybe come Christmas I'll reward myself.

    Don't forget these:

    • ARM Cortex A8 processor (compared with older ARM11)
    • PowerVR SGX 520 graphics chip at 200MHz (compared with older PowerVR MBX-Lite at 60MHz)

    Note: GPU clock speeds are best guesses. Info taken from AnandTech.
