A year ago today many of us were standing in line outside our local Apple Store waiting to get our geeky little hands on the iPhone 3GS, then king of the mobile space. Twice the speed, video recording, and VoiceControl were the killer features, even if the form factor was unchanged.

Over the last twelve months, iPhone 3GS has served us well, and at its soon-to-be $99 price point, rocking iOS 4, no doubt it will serve many budget smartphone shoppers well for another year to come. (Seriously, we feel bad for the Pixi, Kin, Pearl, and others in its new space).

So, on the cusp of iPhone 4's release, we wish iPhone 3GS a happy birthday.

If you've been using an iPhone 3GS over the last year, let us know how it's worked for you.
