    Awesome! =D love the pics! Oh and If anyone is still wondering about if you get a discount if you already have the iPhone 3G, you actually DO get a reduced discount. (Also I might get the discount because I did have an original iPhone, but I had a different number.) Mine is $500 for the 32gb 3GS and I am getting $6.60 off the monthly plan and $5 off data for some reason! and You get to CHOOSE if you want to opt out of MMS or not! Soo If my assumption is correct...all iPhone 3GS will ALREADY have MMS activated.

    I think these pics are fake as the time is stuck on 1:37 and these according to someone were taken in China which apparently has AT&T with full 3G signal!
    Why not make a video instead of pictures? Unboxing of iPhone 3G but photoshopped to look like the 3GS, although a white iPhone with a gold bezel would be nice! *drools*

    Yes, there's a link on the apple page with a comparison between the two phones, and its exactly the same.

    Height: 4.5 inches (115.5 mm) Same as 3G
    Width: 2.4 inches (62.1 mm) Same as 3G
    Depth: 0.48 inch (12.3 mm) Same as 3G
    Weight: 4.8 ounces (135 grams)

    Only difference is the 3G is 4.7 ounces, where the 3g-s is 4.8. But thats acceptabe I guess and I believe both the 16 and 32 are available in Black or White.

    thanks for wasting your time apple, and all the advertising going into showing off the iphones capability of a compass application...
    I can't fully support you there.

    Sure, not many people may use the compass.

    But I'm pretty sure the hardware for the compass is used in Google Maps so it can pick up your location and which direction you're facing, which I think would be really handy.

    I have had times where I had to think twice before I knew which way I was facing.

    I personally think Apple just made the compass app because they could, but the hardware was put in for different reasons.

    All of the new features will play into a bigger picture... Compass for navi. (TomTom) voice interface (verbal commands for games and apps) etc. Sure not everyone will use them for their "vanilla" uses but the possibilities for integration of the features are endless.
    This is getting a lil' ridiculous...

    Sat Nav doesn't need a built in compass.
    But I guess it was the one feature most users had been crying out for....

    I wish it would have actually had the rubbery back like that picture that was released a while back.

    I went into a Chinese restaurant and complained that the chicken was rubbery - they took it as a compliment....

    I wish appled would have pushed a camera with a little higher mega pixel than 3.12...
    there are so many phones out there with 8mp and now even 12mp so for apple making us wait so long I wish they would of went all out on this one... but then again I guess they need to leave some room for next years iphone. I am really excited about the cpu on the 3gs as most the other features we could have somewhat activated with third-party apps...

    Pre ordered my black 16gb and will pick it up on friday!!! Yeeeeeeeeeeah booooooooooooi!

    It can't actually be gold trim, LOL, and if it was I would never buy it. Unless I went with a gold tooth to match. ;P Can we say tacky? Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    It has to be a lighting or reflection issue... there's NO WAY they would make it gold.

    So why dont you tell us what you would have done to make it different/better? You can only do so much with a device. A screen and some buttons. Why fix what isnt broken? WTF?

    I think a lot of people are missing out on the compass possibilities.

    How many realized the accelerometer could be used for so much more than simple portrait/landscape orientation switching? The flexibility provided by Apple's using such sophisticated hardware enabled a lot more.

    Well, the accelerometer has one limitation - it can not detect when you rotate the iPhone around a vertical access - but the magnetometer can. Now games have an additional access of control available.
