This wouldn’t be rocket science to fake but a German forum poster says he got ahold of an 8GB iPhone with a 3GS on the label.  While the iPhone insed was only a refurbished 3G, it would indicate that the label was made for an 8GB iPhone 3GS.  The obvious question is: Will Apple silently or otherwise replace current iPhone 3G models with faster 3GS?

Also, a German retailer seems to be advertising an 8GB iPhone 3GS.

Remember a series of reports earlier this year out of Rogers that had implied the same thing — that 8GB iPhone 3GS models were around the corner.  The move by Apple wouldn’t be surprising or unexpected given that AT&T sells refurbished 16GB iPhones for $49 – which is $100 less than it did earlier this year.
