This Just In: The iPhone 3G S Has a 600-MHz CPU and 256MB of RAM

That didn’t take long! Apple may not want to talk much about the iPhone 3G S’s innards, but someone at T-Mobile Netherlands apparently didn’t get the memo. As everyone suspected, the new phone has a 600-MHz CPU (up from 412-MHz in the 3G) and 256MB of RAM (double the 3G’s capacity). I still wish Apple simply told us this, but I approve of it keeping things simple by calling the phone the iPhone 3G S and saying that the S stands for speed; if it were a different sort of hardware company, it would call this model something like the iPhone 3G 600/256…

    Looks like Backgrounder has more RAM to play with (if they ever find out a way to jailbreak the 3G S).
