iPhone 3G S: The S is for speedy delivery

The "S" in the name of the new iPhone 3G S stands for speed, both in the phone itself and how it's being delivered to some customers.

The "S" in the name of the new iPhone 3G S stands for speed, both in the phone itself and how it's being delivered to some customers.

Customers who ordered their phones direct from Apple's online store have begun receiving an e-mailed "Shipping Notification" from Apple. Included is a UPS tracking number that shows, in at least some cases, delivery as early as tomorrow or Thursday.

The official introduction of the newest iPhone is set for 8 A.M. Friday in Apple's U.S. retail stores.

Like many Apple products, the iPhone GS is being shipped directly to customers from a facility in the coastal boomtown of Shenzhen, China (Pop. 8.6 million). Three-day global delivery isn't one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but for anxious iPhone customers, for the next day or two it probably comes close.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
