As far as I know, the new 3gs' ARE unlockable now with blackra1n. It will be a tethered JB/unlock if the phone has the newest bootrom but it can be done nontheless.
ps. A tethered JB means you cannot let the power completely drain or shut the phone off, or else you will have to re-do the JB/unlock process.

I am not sure about this. I have GeoHot on twitter (flame away! haha) and he hasn't stated anything about that. The latest was that the new phones have a new bootrom which makes the jailbreak/unlock tethered. I have an older 3gs and it is not the case with mine. That is the only thing I have heard. Visit his blog at blackra1n dot com and read some posts there to find out more.
