Talk of an 8GB model of the iPhone 3GS is as old as, well, the iPhone 3GS itself, but a rumor out of Germany has brought talk of mythical device back to the forefront of our minds. When Apfeltalk user .david ordered himself a refurbished iPhone 3G, he was quite surprised to find he had been shipped the device inside a box for the iPhone 3GS complete with a product label clearly stating it is an 8GB model of the 3GS. Here’s what .david had to say:

Seems to be an iPhone 3G (back and no compass, FW) 3.0.1 on it. However, the packaging is clearly designed for an iPhone 3G [S] 8GB. Ordered was a refurbished 3G iPhone 8GB.

So what think you, dear mythbusters? Is this simply the case of an errant S, or a sign of things to come? Be sure to hit the jump to check out one more pic and then share your thoughts.

Bonus in the form of a tip: If you’re going to redact the IMEI and serial, you might want to seriously consider redacting the bar code as well.
