    If you look around Apple's website, there is no longer a space between the "3G" and the "S" in many cases. This has been done with no fanfare, and the rationale behind this is up for grabs. Anyway, it is what it is. On the other hand, you can still find "3G S" on Apple's site, most notably on the iPhone 3G S Guided Tour". See for yourself.

    Here are some instances of 3GS:

    And here is some classic 3G S action:

    So, is Apple just behind on changing everything to 3GS? Or are the two interchangeable. Or, Does it Even Matter?

    I always see it as 3G with a box.

    Even that seems to have changed a bit. On my 3GS box the is spaced, more-so than on Apple's homepage.

    Hehe, but on topic, I don't think it really matters at the moment. We all know what they are talking about.

    I just call it the iPhone 3GS. It's really unclear what it's called though. I think that at WWDC it was introduced as iPhone 3G S though.

    That makes it seem like iPhone 3G in the plural form.
