We already know that apps on the iPhone 3G S will load twice as fast. Apple has made headway with the 3D graphics, while at the same time improving the battery life of the new iPhone. But nothing puts these claims into perspective better than hard numbers.
An over-zealous Webmaster at T-Mobile Netherlands may have gone click-happy recently by publishing specifications that Apple has closely guarded since the announcement of the 3G S. The information has since been pulled from the page, but we all know this: Nothing disappears off the Web without a trace.
As we can see from the screenshot, the 3G S packs a 600MHz processor (similar to the Palm Pre) and 256MB RAM. The earlier iPhone had a 412MHz processor and 128MB RAM. Twice the memory? That should speed things up a fair bit.
