    Meet the new iPhone3Gs (S = Speed)

    Meet the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet. iPhone 3G S features video recording, Voice Control, up to 32GB of storage, and more.

    The Fastest iPhone Ever
    The first thing you’ll notice about iPhone 3G S is how quickly you can launch applications. Web pages render in a fraction of the time, and you can view email attachments faster. Improved performance and updated 3D graphics deliver an incredible gaming experience, too. In fact, everything you do on iPhone 3G S is up to 2x faster and more responsive than iPhone 3G.

    Now you can shoot video, edit it, and share it — all on your iPhone 3G S. Shoot high-quality VGA video in portrait or landscape. Trim your footage by adjusting start and end points. Then share your video in an email, post it to your MobileMe gallery, publish it on YouTube, or sync it back to your Mac or PC using iTunes.

    The new 3-megapixel camera takes great still photos, too, thanks to built-in autofocus and a handy new feature that lets you tap the display to focus on anything (or anyone) you want.

    Voice Control recognizes the names in your Contacts and knows the music on your iPod. So if you want to place a call or play a song, all you have to do is ask.

    Want more room to type on the intelligent software keyboard? Rotate iPhone to landscape to use a larger keyboard in Mail, Messages, Notes, and Safari.

    Surf the web from practically anywhere. Now you can share the 3G connection on your iPhone with your Mac notebook or PC laptop.

    Currently it's looking like I will purchase the 3Gs and retire my 3G but first I want to see how my current 3G handles the new OS update. I'm just not sure yet?
    I suppose I could also barter the 3G for a new pre also? I'm never switching to Sprint but would like to play with the Pre for awhile.

    Decisions......... (sigh......)

    If and when I ever upgrade to the 3Gs (http://www.tuaw.com/2009/06/08/iphon...-upgrade-woes/) I plan on keeping my current 3G as a back up.

    Wow so much for the pre stealing Iphone users huh. Poor pre if the keyboard was constructed better I'd be typing on it right now. But as a BB user since the big brick sized side scroll wheel BB's I can't let it go for the pre.

    This Sux

    I just purchased a 3G 8gb a month and a half ago for $199... Now they are telling me I could have bought a phone with twice the memory and twice the speed for the same price if I would have waited 2 months!!! Seems like everytime I try a new cell carrier, I get screwed 1 way or the other... I'M REALLY STARTING TO MISS MY BB 8330!

    Oh wow! No need to jailbreak the darn thing to enjoy it to the max this time around. I wonder if Onyx or Magnum will make their appearance now that apple's made the first move. Hmmm...Magnum..magnum...magnum! I'm due for an upgrade either way, I'll just have to keep my options open I guess

    I love my 3G and I can't wait to try the new OS on it. I wouldn't use most of the new features although video recording would be handy, but not enough to justify the price over my current 3G.
    Data Outages
    Reinstall OS

    Yes, I'm a BES admin with an iPhone 3G.

    So far from reading over different opinions, those who have the current 3G are pleased with the new OS and it's features. They are reporting things are running smooth and switching between Apps is better.
