    Probably because it's not out yet, so no one has it. It would be awesome if there was one.

    Gizmodo did one, which was quickly pulled from the site. It was only up about an hour or so, before (I assume) Apple told them to pull it.

    Walt Mossberg has one as well as the usual reviewers from NYT, USAToday... their reviews will be out soon. Usually a few days before launch.

    I would guess because its not out yet, apple has a history of issuing an embargo on reviews for unreleased products.

    Read the full text you quoted, its not available yet. People get them early to publish reviews before everyone else gets one.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. It looks like it's got a coat of wax on it.

    Also I notice there's no "S" designation on it (or 3G S). How do you tell the difference, especially if you put a 3G S 16 GB next to a 3G 16 GB?

    you could tell the difference because the 3gs has a much more visible writing on the back, the logo and fcc and all that. i wonder how different the camera will look in up close pics?

    Because The Phone Isn't Out Yet. When It Comes Out, I'm Sure There Will Be Plenty Of Hands On.

    "Loading Gizmodo, which has tons of images and a good deal of Javascript, the 3GS came in at 38 seconds, followed by the Pre at 57 seconds and the 3G at 59 seconds."

    wow.
