Three pretty much unrelated stories here. Firstly celebrated (and reviled in equal measure) Apple iPhone hacker Zibri has spotted a bit of code on the iPhone that he says refers to a 3G chip.

Eagle-eyed Zibri, the man behind the oh-so-easy ZiPhone unlocking tool, noticed mention of Infineon's SGOLD3 chip in the iPhone's version 2.0 software release.

The SGOLD3, he concludes, will be used by the new iPhone to superfast 7.2Mb HSDPA browsing.

And if you're interested in what's inside the current iPhone, pop over to the Stuff.tv forums where you'll find pictures of the innards posted by Stuff reader Urzrkymn.

I've dropped my iPhone more times than I care to mention - I'm notorious in the Stuff offices for my gadget-related clumsiness - and the only damage has been a slight scuff to the bezel.

Unlucky Urzrkymn dropped his iPhone once, 'from pocket height onto a supermarket floor' and managed to smash his iPhone's screen. Commiserations.

Fortunately good old Apple is on hand to fix the problem for a mere £169.

*shudder*

And finally... for the 6 billion iPhone refuseniks out there, good news: there's speculation that the first phone running Google's operating system, Android, will be unveiled in May. Trusted Reviews is suggesting that HTC's invite to an event on May 6th may well herald the birth of the first Android-powered smartphone.

With Nokia's Tube also making waves, and the N96 waiting in the wings, it looks like exciting times ahead for phone fans. 

Will 3G iPhone be available unlocked?
