  • the iPhone 3GS is remarkably different. It has a significantly faster processor (600 MHz up from 412 MHz, with a dramatically improved graphics processor as well), twice the RAM (256 MB up from 128 MB) and support for faster 7.2 Mbps HSDPA.
  • It has an improved 3.0 megapixel camera with VGA video recording at 30 FPS as well as autofocus, macro, and white balance support, a “tap to focus” feature, and new basic “video editing” capabilities (you can cut the beginning and end of a clip “in camera”).
  • It also has a digital compass which is helpfully integrated with Google Maps to make it easy to tell which direction one is facing.
  • In addition to the “twice as fast” performance, better camera, improved battery life, and digital compass, The iPhone 3GS also adds VoiceOver for accessibility, voice control functionality, integrated Nike + iPod support, and an inline remote on the headphone cable (like the iPod shuffle 3G).
