While many lined up this past weekend to buy the Palm Pre, some decided to wait on making a purchase to hear what would come out of the WWDC 2009 keynote , and as we all found out on the Monday, the answer was the iPhone 3G S.

Since then, the cell phone editors have received numerous reader e-mails wondering whether we'd be doing a prizefight between the two smartphones and we just wanted to let you know that the answer is most definitely yes. As soon as the iPhone 3G S is released on June 19 and we get a review unit, we'll pit the two devices against each other in various categories, so stay tuned!
