    For those of you wondering what a 600mhz speed boost will do for the new iPhone here is your answer. This is about the iPod touch yes, but the hardware is similar (duh) so the comparison is valid.

    With that in mind, I'm keeping my 3G for another year.

    Except that the 2nd gen iPod touch was using the exact same processor, but underclocked less than the 1G iPod and iPhone/3G. The iPhone 3G S is using a brand new architecture. Significantly faster.

    Last time I checked, the iPhone 3G S hadnt released yet....so I guess that makes you right. When it is out....it is the fastest touch device Apple has released.

    true, just posting the article for those who were asking about speed differences.

    Also, notice the developer just scales their app to run on slower hardware, they don't leave out the older users. I thought that was promising.

    Cortex-A8 @ 400Mhz > ARM11 @ 400Mhz

    Megahertz are all that makes a processor fast.

    Yes, im aware. Actually, this new one is leaps ahead according to this source http://www.anandtech.com/gadgets/showdoc.aspx?i=3579&p=1 which i fully trust. Looks like an interesting upgrade. Now if we could just get the contract whiners to be quiet these forums would be nice again lol.

    That is a great article btw, please read before you people gang up on me lol.

    Nah, just one piece of the (apple) pie. The MHz war is over and generally speaking the focus is now on cores, cache, efficiency, etc., which benefits heat reduction and battery life.
