I really don't like the name, just makes it more confusing, why not just revert to iPhone?
mmm, the S is for SEXY, like me!
First generation : iPhone
Second generation : iPhone 3G
Third generation : iPhone 3G S
Yeah man it stands for 3GeeSTUPID!
The name of the phone has no effect on my awesomeness.
It's the 3GShutup we gave you mms (almost), copy-paste, video,better camera now pony up the early ugrade dough...sincerly , ATT & Steve.
ROFL. I am truly glad I'll never have to listen to another copy/paste bitchfest ever again.
I'm annoyed that Steve caved to the carriers on MMS, but the silver lining is we won't have to hear any more whining about that either.
Should have just been 'the New iPhone'.
Of course, I guess you can't really do that if it looks identical to The Old iPhone.
More like: "Why do people make polls with such stupid options, what do you think?"
iPhone 3G ASS
I'm personally upset that the "s" badge is the cheezy little boxed thing. I was kinda hoping it would be something like the cool "S" badge off the toyotas or the sweet little ////AMG badges from mercedes, but as you can see from my sig ('tuned by jobs') i'm a bit over the top when it comes to that sort of stuff. I would pay for a jobs customized version though
I think it's an honest enough name. They're saying "basically it's an iPhone 3G with a bit of extra stuff added. That's all!".
I'm waiting for the iPhone Pro.
whats wrong with fun?
I thought it was a silly name.
S for SPEED!!!
I thought they should have just gone back to iPhone, maybe if the casing wasn't identical.
Why are you annoyed that we finally have MMS? It's kinda stupid that the iPhone hasn't gotten MMS until now. ALL other phones have had it for years.
i think he is talking about att et al not offering mms.
hurrah for australia
yes it is ! They should of called it iPhone 3G2 or iPhone 3.0.
Its just a name, Heck people have complained for years about apple iProducts. Back when the bondi blue iMac debuted, it made sense but now???
Personally I never really gave it much thought.
btw, just pop over to the MacBook Pro forum and see those folks bitching about the inclusion of the 13" MacBook line in the MBP product segment, so its not just the iPhone
Still, it prevents my mum calling it a blueberry
Look at the back of an iPhone 3G S. If you noticed, "3G S" is indeed missing on the back of the new iPhone. The "3G S" part is just the code name. I think they did it to make less confusion for the consumer.
there is only one iPhone (well, there was) so why add 3G or 3Gs, i can understand it with iPod nano/classic/touch et al.
This gets my vote.
The S is there simply to differentiate it from a technical standpoint. It rolls off the tongue a lot easier than "iPhone 3G second edition" or "iPhone 3G mid-2009 release." You can't call it a "third generation iPhone" because that confuses the fact that the "Second Generation" iPhone runs on a Third Generation cellular wireless network. And you can't call it the iPhone 4G, because it's neither the 4th Generation iPhone, nor does it use a 4G network.
Besides, most conversations are going to go something like "Oh, an iPhone! Is it the new one?"
You don't emphasize in common speech that it's an S model. It's just a iPhone. Yeah, the new one.
I don't even call my iPhone 3G an "iPhone 3G" in common speech. It's just an iPhone. The current model. In a week it'll be "last year's" version.
so you voted for just iPhone?
Personally, I think it's a great name for it. I didn't vote because none of the options really make much sense or match my feelings.
Coming from the car tuning/racing scene (I do neither anymore, but I was in it for a while), adding an "S" definitely conveys a boost in performance in my book. And it's simple. I like calling it "The S".
