I feel conned into this Pyramid scheme of Apple's and I'm gonna try as much as I can not to get the new one, they roll them off the conveyer belt one after the other... And if I'm honest it's getting boring now, we haven't made a major leap from the 3GS to the Iphone 4, and now the Phone 4S, Deja vu all over again?
Actually analysts and industry observers were expecting for a long time for apple to release a new phone. So apple is not really into the obsolete the product game as much. I guess 3GS will be phased out (as ios 5 will not support it fully) but Iphone 4 should be good to go till the next release.

As a product phones are maturing now (thanks apple) and thus the new phone doesn't only mean the phone (H/W) feature but also the OS based feature on phone (like cloud). So if you have Iphone 4 it should not be that bad for you. At the same time for people who bought 3GS two years back or earlier, it is really time to change.

I find it much better than Samsung or other Android phone where every phone kind of has different OS version and different version of app support and difficult to know what is latest and good. Good old apple, we love it, don't we..

Now that we're getting bored of the T&C debale...

Will you be following the iPhone5 announcement or just going to buy the new one regardless? Does anyone get excited by this any more?
I do. but only because I am long AAPL.

never bought any Apple products myself, but I'm an investor, so yeah Go Iphone 5 or whatever the next number is....

I have a feeling they will have a bigger screen this time. If they do them I'm sold.

I am rather excited but it will be a shame to now have Steve on the stage
Cant be much bigger though as they want to keep the moniker "Retina" for their screens, which requires a minimum amount of pixels per inch to be classed as one.

Re: iPhone5/iphone4s 7pm tonight

I hope we havent waited 16 months for the same form factor and screen size. No matter what the feature set, that would certainly be a disappointment to me.

Re: iPhone5/iphone4s 7pm tonight

1:13PM Over 300 million iPods have been sold. "It took Sony 30 years to sell 220,000 Walkman casette players."

Saying things like this make me hate Apple.

It's more reliable but the commentary isn't as good.

I hate the pretentious, t-shirt and jeans look of their presenters. Smarten up you tramps, the guy currently on is wearing an un-ironed purple shirt.



And this guy looks like he's just interupted his morning jog to 'grace' the world with his presence.



Their CEO (don't be fooled, that outfit costs more than a Ciro Citterio suit )



I can't believe how contemptious this lot are

Just for comparison, here is my former CEO -highly respectful of patients and shareholders
