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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
