    Notice the "iPhone" part is much brighter then that of the 3G, according to these pictures on Apple's site. I don't think there would be a difference in the pictures if there really wasn't some difference. Maybe they're using the same metallic looking finish as the Apple logo now?

    Also, notice what I'm talking about in the new commercial too...

    and people were complaining because Apple didn't make any physical alterations to the 3G.:D

    I Noticed this too.

    Gives the phone a tad more WOW factor, still wonder if its all the writing, or just the 'iPhone' Part in silver.

    now people will start holding their phones funny so everyone can see the apple logo and "iphone"....and the size of your package (16or32)

    anyone have a picture of the white one?

    in the images above, the white one hardly shows the writing.

    Wow... I think that really improves the look of the phone. I like.

    That's not sarcasm.

    Looks nice - but I liked the faded font that it was before on the 3G. Made the black looks ominous and almost slate like.

    Personally, I like that it's brighter on the white model. I don't really care to see all the little info like the FCC info and storage space. The apple logo shows up nicer, and looks a hell of a lot better than the 3G.

    by the by, thanks for the pic of the white 3GS.

    Looks like it might be silver and not white, at least from that video shot.

    I was debating whether or not to upgrade, but this just pushed me over the edge.

    Seriously? Changes to the back writing pushed you over the edge?
    Maybe over the edge of sanity. ;)

    I like the brighter lettering, but i dont like all that FCC info **** get rid of that stuff apple and it will make the back superb :) As for the white I think a little contrast of some black would look kinda schmexy

    I agree. I don't like the FCC info on the back at all. I'm assuming they have no choice, but on my original iPhone it only has the FCC ID, srial and IMEI no., etc., and not all the symbols, and its really small.

    This is additional evidence that the leaked matte case with bright lettering was produced by Apple.
