The S in iPhone 3G S stands for Speed, making it the fastest and most powerful iPhone yet. iPhone 3G S offers some major speed enhancements with quick app launch, fast web page rendering and updated 3D graphics making it the most advanced phone, iPod and web browsing device.

With faster processor and improved battery life Apple had a very good opportunity to offer multitasking and match one of Pre’s biggest advantages. It is still unclear whether background apps is a software or hardware issue in iPhone 3G S.
