Apple iPhone 3GS capable of 1080p HD video playback?
So, it turns out that Apple’s new golden boy, the iPhone 3GS, is almost capable of playing high-definition videos. What do we mean by “almost”? iLounge reports that a user at a Chinese forum claims to have been able to play 720p and 1080p HD videos on the phone. It looks like with the help of the free FileAid app, you could actually run such great resolutions. However, EngadgetMobile informs that they did not manage to achieve full success, as some of the HD trailers they tested crashed the iPhone 3GS’ audio driver, while others introduced some significant stuttering.

Even though you might not be able to flawlessly play HD videos on your device, this means that Apple’s product has a potential that is yet to be unlocked. And we prefer this to happen via a software update, rather than having to wait for the next model in the series...

Just for the record, officially the Apple iPhone 3GS is capable of playing videos with a maximum resolution of 640x480 pixels.
