Apple drops space in 'iPhone 3G S'

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 24 Jun 2009 3:54 User comments (17)

Apple drops space in 'iPhone 3G S' According to a new Twitter post, it appears Apple has dropped the space from the iPhone 3G S making it the simpler 3GS (no space).
This is not earth shattering news, obviously, but it is a welcome move to the tons of journalists out there right now which have been somewhat confused by the naming scheme.

Apple’s Greg Joswiak says it is now 3GS however, which should make for added confusion when trying to write about multiple iPhone 3Gs (lower case S).

LoL! I still don't know what the "S" stands for. But it will add confusion. They should've named it 3G C or something else... :-P!

3GTX

324.6.2009 9:40

or used an old naming scheme like Apple 3G II :)

Me three...It really doesn't have anything the 3G didn't have, except the camera and "bigger" flash drive. I really think there's no big need to upgrade. Besides, all of the features they added are software-based and are easily accessible with the 3.0 firmware.

because a new CPU is clearly software.

That's interesting news...I guess I retract what I said about "all" the improvements. Anyway, I'm stuck with a 2 month-old 2 year contract and I don't intend to put a $30.00 data plan on my account for an iPhone only...

The S stands for speed. The new iPhone 3G S is twice as fast as the previous model.

The "S" stands for something synonymous with crap.

1425.6.2009 3:40

its not twice as fast, as loading web pages in half the time.

its not jsut a speed bump on the proccessor, its a different proccessor entirely.

S = "suckers who are helping fund the next generation if iPhone"

It's a good thing we have a lot of S's, so in about year we can have a better phone.

min cost for iphone 3gs w/o text messaging = 1679.16 yr contract of 450min and the req'ed data plan
