Apple Launches Online iPhone 3GS Availability Tracker

Echoing previous years, Apple.com has once again posted an easy, online way for iPhone 3GS buyers to check and make sure their local Apple Retail Store has units on hand.

Both 16GB and 32GB, black- and white-backed models are shown, with nasty red squares connoting sell outs and happy green circles, supplies on hand.

So if you're heading out to get your hands on an iPhone 3GS this weekend, give it a try, and let us know how it works for you.

Dev-Team - iPhone 3GS Jailbreak Possible via 24Kpwn, Unlock via ultrasn0w?

The illustrious iPhone Dev-Team says that the 24Kpwn techniques, originally developers as part of the iPod touch 2G jailbreak efforts, look like they just might work on the iPhone 3GS as well!

This is great news, but how did it happen? Why didn’t Apple fix this in their normal cat&mouse fashion? Well it seems this bootrom was cut in about the August 2008 timeframe, so the unintended early reveal of 24Kpwn earlier this year didn’t affect the iPhone 3GS

They're also confident that the recently released ultrasn0w unlock will work on the iPhone 3GS once they get the jailbreak up and running.

Telus and Bell Going HSPA, Hungry for iPhone 3GS in Canada?

BGR served up a rumor that Telus in Canada was getting the iPhone 3GS in October. How will a CDMA carrier get the GSM iPhone? Simple, as mentioned last year, Telus has partnered with Bell to expand their CDMA network by adding in HSPA. That means Bell Mobility could support the iPhone 3GS as well, and the rumor's TiPb's hearing is they just might (though exact timing will of course depend on how fast they get HSPA up and running).

iPhone 3GS Power a Boon for Jailbreak Console Emulators

Zodttd (via Gizmodo) whets our appetites for iPhone 3GS jailbreaks to come:

I now have psx4iphone running very speedy on the 3GS. It’s at the point where Final Fantasy 7 is fullspeed at very least without sound. The build is rough around the edges, as you can’t switch games without restarting the emulator, and only memory card saves are currently working, no save states just yet. Both these issues are being worked on.

TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G App Launch Battle Royal!

http://www.th Two iPhones, 6 apps. We know the iPhone 3G S is supposed to be "on average" 2x faster than the iPhone 3G, but stats are stats and what we're interested in is real-world usage. A few seconds here, a dozen or more there, and all of a sudden they add up to minutes.

In this video we launch apps on each iPhone 3.0 device at the same time, but imagine if every time the iPhone 3G S finished first, we immediately launched the next app. We wouldn't make you sit through that much iPhone 3G lag, but that makes the point.
