According to the tech specs on the Apple website the video rate and resoultion supported by both the 3G and 3GS is the same. If true I find this disappointing. 1) It's been a year and technology has progressed, 2) the Zune HD can support 1080p on board as well as output 1080p. Is this just an example of Apple throwing the same specs up? Is the increased capability of the phone opening applications just a function of added RAM? The cost is kept down based on the same video chip as that in the 3G? Edit: Not sure why this was moved from the HTF section. The encoding capability that the phone supports is directly related to encoding for other devices such as the ATV.
