When did ya flog that mate? What you using at the moment then?

I thought I was being clever getting mine delivered by RM Special Delivery to get it by 1pm on Friday. Little did I know about the strike. Other option was City Link so the lovely girl at mobiles.co.uk let me change delivery method.

Oh yeah just so people know, reviews made an appearance this afternoon by the places Apple hand picked with quite a few more than likely told what to say .

Well I had bought a 16GB 3G non-S, but the seller backed out at the last moment and I've not found another decent deal, so it looks like the 3GS for me, mainly for the extra 8GB which I actually need, although also for the extra speed etc

Good a reason as any.

By the way here is a video I have just seen of the 3G and 3G S using the 3.0 OS, powering up the phone and opening the same apps against each other.

About halfway down the page.

Damn me? Ha ha

I saw another review that had an even more telling clip. It showed lots of different clips, with one of them being both phones opening Resident Evil Degeneration. The difference was something else.. Not only did it get to the main game screen demo about 15 - 20 seconds faster, it played it much smoother.

Looks like the big difference will be with the games.

Edit: Found the video.. It's the first vid on this page.
