Secret iPhone 3G S Specs!

The new iPhone 3G S will probably be torn apart and posted all over the internet with its true specs but looks like T-mobile has released some of the specs which Apple has not:

The relevant numbers are 256MB RAM for the OS, double that of the 128MB in the original iPhone, and a 600MHz processor, up from the pedestrian 412MHz of the first two models.
