iPhone 3G S gets unboxed
Although it´s just a week until the latest addition to the iPhone line, the iPhone 3G S, is officially released, some impatient individuals seem unable to wait that long and have taken the beast out of its box. Everything is as it should be – glossy back with a label that says 32GB. One of the images shows the compass interface, which seems to have an interesting way of calibration – you should wave the iPhone 3G S in a figure 8 motion.

As a whole, it looks like Apple didn’t do their best in terms of design. Everything is the same old, including the phone and the box. Well, we still don’t know what the package content is though, but judging from what we see, it is ... exactly the same. So, are you counting the days until you can get your iPhone 3G S?

I'm just going to say that this IPhone 3gs is not worth the upgrade, especially if they aren't getting it for new activation price like last year. No big difference from 3g to 3gs. Now 2g to 3g was a huge improvement and got a discounted price. 3gs=NOT WORTH IT. Also trying to shoot videos on a phone is crappy! buy a camcorder. Also who needs a compass WORTHLESS! Voice activation is crappy just like their mac versions.

I agree with you somewhat, but especially the compass... haha!! Technically, all phones (with GPS) could supply you with a compass of some sort... just use your gps, follow the maps, and you can easily figure out if you are going N,S,E or W... just a thought...

The upgrade seems to be good, not great just how we all complained the 1st generation iphone should have been, with that said how useful is the speed upgrades if ATTs 3G network is still weak?? Maybe on WiFi it will make a big difference but when you are out in the city, beach, mountains, etc. how great will this upgrade really be taken advantage of? The phone can only be as fast as the network allows it too.

The speed upgrades are for basic functions not data. It still has 3G just like the last one for data. They are referring to application launch times etc.

I would think a faster processor would assist in download time too. Many simple/feature phones have 3G too but pages are rendered slower because the phone is not as powerful

...Logically, that could be said about any phone and manufacturer... Here, let's try it for fun!! And we can all do it together, hold hands and sing kumbaya... Fill in the Blanks!!! "it doesnt matter what [blank] and [blank] do bcuz the phone is absolutely useless if u cant get a signal" "it doesnt matter what HTC and T-Mobile do bcuz the phone is absolutely useless if u cant get a signal" "it doesnt matter what LG and Verizon do bcuz the phone is absolutely useless if u cant get a signal" "it doesnt matter what Palm and Sprint do bcuz the phone is absolutely useless if u cant get a signal" Thanks for stating the obvious...You are right, no matter what a phone manufacturer and a phone company do, their products won't work without a signal... There, I think we all feel better :)

LOL I LOVE YOUR COMMENT! I bet metalpoet is one of those dumb "VZW is the best thing to ever happen to the earth since the BIG BANG... IN FACT VZW STARTED THE BIG BANG!!!!! STORM FTW!!!!!" .............. Watch... if Apple ever starts making the iPhone for VZW he is going to say how awesome the iPhone is.... sheeple bother me.

there does seem to be many more verizon supporters/customers/fans/workers on this site than any other carrier. :-) BB and vzw FTW.

Kiltlifter: :) haha! You are right on with this for sure... Let's be honest. Verizon will one day have the iPhone. And with that happening, there will be a shit-ton of Verizon Fanboys who will hop on the iPhone bandwagon and proclaim its "now excellence" because it will be on the Verizon Network... the same network that created all things...

i dont like the first 2 iphones simply despite all the super ease-of-use experience they miss useful and standard features - you know copy+paste, send/receive vcard, phone as modem, grouped contacts, video-call, even forward msgs at the early state... this one are fixing almost all these issues... if only it's coming out with a camera flash, apple can finally arguably claim it as the best phone out there... guess nxt year higher camera spec, flash, video-call, and multi-tasking.... palm (pre) is somewhat in a different field, but android definitely needs to catch-up...
