UPDATED: iPhone 3G S Unboxing in China!

UPDATED: iPhone 3G S Unboxing in China!

UPDATE: Looks like and the original post is now MIA, so we're keeping the ship steady, banking left, and redirecting unboxing lovers to iTalkiPhone for the rest of the gallery. (Thanks Taylor!)

ORIGINAL: Looks like someone's scored the first pictures of an iPhone 3G S, unboxed and in the wild. Pretty much what everyone expected -- looks just like the iPhone 3G but has some nifty new software like the Compass App (complete with re-calibration instructions), voice control, etc. but still drool-worthy none the less.

A few more pics after the break, but check out their full gallery for all gadget pr0n goodness!

Advertising Age Magazine Looks at iPhone and the AT&T Backlash

Advertising Age Magazine Looks at iPhone and the AT&T Backlash

Advertising Age Magazine ran a couple of articles this week on AT&T and the iPhone, and were kind enough to talk to TiPb about the issues surrounding how AT&T Needs to Raise the Bar on it's network service, and How AT&T Should Handle the Online iPhone Price Backlash.

Lots of good ideas offered all around, but is AT&T listening? Reader David from Texas wrote in to let us know they just might be after he received a direct email newsletter from the US iPhone carrier saying:

The Need for iPhone 3G S Speed. Or, What Did You Want, a Built-In Espresso Maker?!

46

The Need for iPhone 3G S Speed. Or, What Did You Want, a Built-In Espresso Maker?!

Jeremy and Chad both gave excellent, compelling reasons for why they ARE SO or ARE NOT upgrading to the iPhone 3G S. For certain, intelligent people will have different yet equally valid reasons for choosing to upgrade, or not to upgrade. For myself?

Apple had me at speed.

iPhone 3G S Developers Already Splitting the Platform?

iPhone 3G S Developers Already Splitting the Platform?

No sooner did we ask (twice) whether the iPhone 3G S will speed up the splitting of the iPhone OS platform than Mobility Today finds the little pop-up alert, above, just chock-a-block full of confirmation.

Apps for Less: Peggle and Need for Speed Undercover

Apps for Less: Peggle and Need for Speed Undercover

It's been a while since out last Apps for Less. It seems as if all the developers are working hard to put their final touches on updates for iPhone OS 3.0 rather than putting their application on sale. With that said, TiPb does have two applications that you may be very interested in picking up at lower prices.

Hackers Hack Apple.com Online Store to Buy iPhone 3G S Sans AT&T Contract?

5

Hackers Hack Apple.com Online Store to Buy iPhone 3G S Sans AT&T Contract?

This was sent our way along with a tip saying almost a dozen people had successfully processed US apple.com iPhone 3G S orders using this hack to avoid AT&T's online contract sign-up.

It doesn't get you the subsidized $199/$299 price, nor an unlocked iPhone, of course, so don't get too excited.

We have no idea if it actually works either -- if orders placed this way will actually ship, or if AT&T goons in black will show up at your door for a little curb-stomping contract reminder. We obviously can't condone it either, so we link to it strictly for educational and entertainment sake, knowing our readers are all responsible adults. Right?

Leaked iPhone 3G S Matte Finish iPhone Cases Were Real... or Canary Traps?

Leaked iPhone 3G S Matte Finish iPhone Cases Were Real... or Canary Traps?

Way back in February a matte black next generation casing (for what's now known as the iPhone 3G S) made it's way around the internet. No one knew if it was real or not, and since WWDC introduced the iPhone 3G S with the same glossy finish as the previous generation, doubts -- they were raised.

iPhone Push Notification Testing Round 2: AIM

28

iPhone Push Notification Testing Round 2: AIM

Apple previously invited developers to help test the upcoming iPhone 3.0 Push Notification service using AP (Associated Press). Now they're ready for some IM action, and have prepared a special, 7-day build of AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) to put push through its paces:

As a developer actively working with iPhone OS, we would like your help in a private test of the Apple Push Notification service. For this test, we have selected AOL's AIM Developer Preview for iPhone OS 3.0 to create a high-volume test environment for our server.

Of course, as with most everything iPhone 3.0-related, at least news of the test didn't stay private for long.

For a sampling of some of the screenshots we've received, check out the gallery after the break!

[Thanks to Rikimaru, and all the anonymous tipsters!)

iPhone 3G: Apple Re-Invents the $99 Budget Smartphone

iPhone 3G: Apple Re-Invents the $99 Budget Smartphone

There's a "budget" smartphone category that has so far revolved around devices like the Palm Centro, BlackBerry Pearl, and a host of Windows Mobile devices like the Samsung Jack -- basically scads of devices aimed below the fat wallets of enterprise.

Typically these devices are small to the point of being cramped, with tiny keyboards or work-arounds like T9 or SureType, and are low-margin for manufacturers -- sold more to grab new users, bolster market share, and create brand awareness than to serve as mobile computers for the internet age.

Well, Apple has just shot a cannonball through the heart of that smartphone category -- the iPhone 3G at $99.

At least that was our editor-in-chief, Dieter Bohn's reaction when we spoke following the big WWDC 2009 Keynote. And I think he's right. Here's why:

Where Was Windows Mobile at WWDC 2009?

In a write up nonchalantly titled "Lies, damn lies, statistics, and Apple...", our good friend Phil Nickinson over at sister-site WMExperts rightly points out that Apple gave Windows Mobile a full on shunning during the WWDC 2009 keynote:

TiPb vs. TiPb: Why I AM NOT Upgrading to iPhone 3GS

TiPb vs. TiPb: Why I AM NOT Upgrading to iPhone 3GS

[TiPb vs. TiPb time! In the blue corner we have Jeremy who tells us why he IS SO upgrading to the iPhone 3G S. In the red corner, Chad who tells us why he IS NOT upgrading to the iPhone 3G S. Two writers, one issue. Check them both out and tell us who's side you're on!]

There have been a lot of people out there who are very disappointed with the third generation iPhone — iPhone 3G S. They’re saying that it is pretty much the same phone as the current iPhone 3G, or that the upgrades are not enough to warrant purchasing the new iPhone 3G S. I’m here to say, they're right - the upgrades are not significant enough!

iPhone 3G S and OpenGL ES 2.0 Hardware Accelerated Graphical Goodness Also a Platform Splitter?

iPhone 3G S and OpenGL ES 2.0 Hardware Accelerated Graphical Goodness Also a Platform Splitter?

This morning we wondered aloud about whether the iPhone 3G S would be splitting Apple's mobile OS X platform. Looks like we weren't the only ones wondering.

Engadget's Chris Ziegler takes a look at the new hardware's PowerVR SGX graphics-core's support for OpenGL ES 2.0, and that led him to this language in Apple's iPhone SDK documentation:
