A German customer found a label on the back of a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G, reading "iPhone 3GS v2.2, 8GB." The model number, A1241, and part number, MB490DN/A, are identical to existing iPhone 3G, but other materials on packaging reference an 8GB iPhone 3GS. At present, lowest-capacity iPhone 3GS is a $199 16GB with two-year AT&T contract in the U.S, and sports a fast PowerVR SGX GPU core that supports Open GL ES 2.0, which existing $99 iPhone 3G cannot do. “A mid-cycle upgrade for iPhone is not a new approach. In 2008, Apple introduced a 16GB iPhone for $499. Months later, iPhone 3G was released. Recent reports have said Apple has scheduled a special media event for Jan. 26, 2010. New products are expected to be announced at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Calif,” Neil Hughes notes.
