Sure, we're only a few hours away from Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference, that doesn't mean we don't have time for a few new rumors. John Gruber of Daring Fireball fame has come out with a new list of rumors. Foremost among the new rumors was information that the final iPhone 2009 product name will be the iPhone 3GS.

It's not a particularly exciting name, but you don't need a whole lot of bluster when you've got hardware as impressive as the new iPhone is going to have. Gruber is adamant that his prior statement that the 3GS will come with twice the CPU speed, twice the RAM, and a heavily emphasized new camera still holds true. If he's right (and Engadget thinks he is) the iPhone 3GS is going to be one of the beefiest smartphones out on the market.

Gruber also hints that iPhone tethering might be a possibility with the 3GS. It's true that the OS 3.0 firmware supports tethering, and it's very possible that AT&T will let users pay an extra fee to tether their iPhones to devices like netbooks. Rumors of a front-facing iPhone camera for video conferencing are also still running rampant. Whatever the truth is, we'll know tomorrow morning. Update: iPhone 3GS is official.
