  • iPhone 3GS Hardware Specs Leaking Out


    The S is for speed and for more speed one needs some more power. T-Mobile Netherlands has posted specifications for the new iPhone 3G S processor revealing a 600 MHz chip inside.

    The new chip and more ram is how the iPhone 3G S is 50% faster than the iPhone 3G. For the iPhone 3G S Apple has bumped up processor speed from 400 MHz to 600 MHz and doubled the RAM going from 128 MB to 256 MB.

    While no more details about the processor in the iPhone 3G S have emerged yet we are expecting it to be some sort of ARM 7 processor previously rumored.

    Also, Apple's "iPhone How To" area has an entry on cleaning the iPhone which mentions the new iPhone 3GS will have an Oleophobic screen. You were hoping for perhaps OLED? Well how about an anti-climactic anti-oil screen?

    To clean iPhone, unplug all cables and turn off iPhone (press and hold the Sleep/ Wake button, then slide the onscreen slider). Then use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPhone. If your iPhone has an oleophobic coating on the screen (iPhone 3G S only), simply wipe your iPhone’s screen with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove oil left by your hands and face.
    Here's to all you looking forward to simply wiping on June 19th.

      Specs look okay. The reason why I am interested in the new iPhone is the 32GB, I always wanted bigger! The extra ram and proc are nice too, now its a decision to sell my iPhone 3G and purchase the iPhone 3GS or just stay with iPhone 3G. Hmmmmmmm.....

      WOW!!!!! I don't think your good at maths at all.
      Indeed, he sucks, but I don't think you're good at English.

      50% slower(which you are thinking of) means its 50% slower

      lol
      Actually, he's ignoring the "faster" part entirely and assuming "of" there instead. It just so happens that 50% "of" something's speed is the same as 50% slower, but 75% "of" something would not be 75% slower (it would be 25% slower). Sorry, I've gotta use this to segue into a PSA...

      This is the reason why idiots who insist that their regional way of telling time makes sense in English are retards... "5 of 10" does not mean "5 untill/before 10" in the English language except in very specific regions which use it to refer to "minutes til the hour" and NOWHERE ELSE. Even within the same country, the vast majority of the USA has never heard it and would not know what is meant by it. As seen above, they could only assume the opposite (minutes past the hour).

      On the other hand, "10 o'clock" makes PERFECT sense because ten "of" the hours "of" the clock have PASSED. If the rest of the country and the English-speaking world requires a dictionary's special-case definition to know what you are talking about, be a professional and DON'T USE IT. There's a reason you have never seen it in books, movies, songs, and other media. Excusing it with the dictionary is circular reasoning (it's only in there because it's been used by pockets of idiots for a very long time).

      Thank you for re-phrasing it in proper english for me
      There's a button for that. It's right underneath his post.

      You are asking about jailbreaking a device that's not even on the market yet. As you said... no one knows yet.

      Are you people really this dumb?

      50% - that's nearly a third!

      Is the 256mb part of the 16 or 32gb?
      If it is will the 3G also get that upgrade when we update to 3.0? I'm probably hoping for the impossible.


      EDIT
      The answer is no.
      It's seperate from storage memory.

      I wonder if GEOHOT can come up with a hardware hack to free its speed...( or a software hack) Hmmmmmm
