Whoops! iPhone 3G S specs leaked online

What's going on under the hood has remained a mystery -- at least, until now.

Apple's been keeping quiet about the specs of its new iPhone 3G S, the next-generation device unveiled at Monday's Worldwide Developers Conference. We know all about the iPhone's various features and operating system enhancements, sure, but what's going on under the hood has remained a mystery -- at least, until now.

The iPhone 3G S Specs

T-Mobile's Netherlands Web site posted a page about the iPhone 3G S that includes detailed information about the device's processor and RAM. The page, initially spotted by the Web-watchers at MacDailyNews , was still online as of mid-afternoon Wednesday. The marketing copy isn't written in English, but the specifications require no translation.

The iPhone 3G S, according to the T-Mobile site, has 256MB of RAM and a 600MHz processor. Compare that with the current iPhone 3G's 128MB of RAM and 412MHz processor, and Apple's assertion that the iPhone 3G S is twice as fast as its predecessor doesn't seem too far-fetched.

To be fair, there's no official Apple confirmation that T-Mobile's specs are correct -- and, given the company's share-no-details stance on specifications, there likely won't be. The numbers do, however, match up exactly with some alleged "insider information" published on a Chinese Apple forum last month.

The truth, of course, is that Apple's secret wouldn't have stayed quiet much longer, anyhow. With the 3G S set to hit store shelves next Friday, the iPhone's deepest alleys are just days away from being fully explored. Still, between this and T-Mobile's leaked data fiasco, one has to imagine it's a good week to be anywhere but inside the T-Mobile corporate conference room.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
