Apple says the iPhone 3G S will launch this Friday, but some who pre-ordered this smartphone have been notified that their device has already shipped.
A few who pre-ordered Apple’s third-generation phone have received emails telling them their purchase is on the way. These messages include a tracking number.
More about the iPhone 3G S
Apple’s next smartphone will be an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary model. Its feature set will be improved, but not dramatically so.
Its maker is emphasizing an increase in speed, with a faster processor and a quicker version of 3G.
In addition, this model will have twice the Storage capacity, support for recording and editing video, and a handful of other features, like MMS support. Still, iPhone 3G S will have much in common with the current version. The outward appearance isn’t significantly different, and the screen resolution will remain the same.
There will be two versions of the third-generation iPhone: a 16 GB one is selling for $200, while a 32 GB model goes for $300. They will be available in back and white casings.
