The iPhone 3GS does well in radiation testing, coming in with the lowest radiation level of the popular smart phone models tested. Meanwhile, the BlackBerry Bold registered the highest level:

"Current FCC regulations permit SAR levels of up to 1.6 W/kg for partial body (head) exposure, 0.08 W/kg for whole-body exposure and 4 W/kg for exposure to the hands, wrists, feet and ankles. The BlackBerry Bold 9700 scores an overall 1.55 SAR in the new rankings. The Motorola Droid came in at 1.50 while the LG Chocolate scored a 1.46, the Nexus One ranked a 1.39 and the Apple iPhone 3G scored a 1.19."

Very interesting, thanks for the link! Did you mean 0.8 instead of 0.08?

Huh, 3GS is up 16% over the 3G. I don't know I'd say it does "well" when it's over 2x the best model available.

I didn't see the result for the 3G, sorry.
