Re: iPhone5/iphone4s 7pm tonight

And thus the iPhone falls even further behind Android... enjoy your limited tech for another year, Apple fans.

I'll be enjoying the Samsung Nexus Prime while you wait.

Its an iphone 4 with an unneccessarily better camera and voice recognition (which the iphone 4 could probably handle as well but which they wont offer because
Yupp, Siri was first released as an app for the iPhone 4 but was then bought by Apple and removed from the App Store.

It's called playing to the audience..Maximise all you can ring out of the iphone 4.

Usual apple hype never understood why people buy into it. A phone is a tool it either does what you want or it doesn't buy accordingly.

The only impressive thing Apple launched tonight is the new iPod Nano. Very competitively priced, can be used as a wrist watch and has Nike+ integrated.

the iPhone 4s - not so much. The small screen bothers me a lot. The camera might be nice, but I doubt it's better than those on the Sony Android handsets. Apart from that, they're "fixing" a non-existing problem - the iPhone 4 already has a great camera that allows for good looking pictures of up to A4 size.

Siri is cute but Google has had perfect voice controls forever now and nobody ever bothered using it, although it was implemented seamlessly.

The A5 processor is nice, too, but again - the iPhone 4 never had a speed problem.

I doubt a lot of people will upgrade from their existing iPhone 4 - mainly since the differences between the iPhone 4 and the 4S are even smaller than those between the 3G and the 3GS.
The weak offering tonight won't help Apple's falling behind Android in terms of market share for their mobile OS.

Peter
Yup, main differences are the A5 chip, improved camera and Siri. I wonder how many different accents can Siri recognise.

I for one am very smug that I dont have to feel like such a loser for getting my iphone4 earlier this year only to have an iPhone5 out. Yeee-haw.

PS: apple shares did fall yesterday upon announcement of the iPhone4S.

Re: iPhone5/iphone4s 7pm tonight

For the first time since Apple have been producing the goods, someone is going to say to a friend

"Got me the latest iPhone"


<silence>


"Nice weather today..."

Re: iPhone5/iphone4s 7pm tonight

I'm going to give it an order when it comes out anyway. If they release a new iPhone in 6 months then so be it.

I am quite impressed with the camera and the A5 processor should keep it in good nick for many years to come. The biggest let down is the screen.

People are ranting and raving that the phone isn't a big change. But the majority of the insides are changed; as for the outside...it was a pretty handsome device anyway.

Re: iPhone5/iphone4s 7pm tonight

New contract, new phone, little dissappointed it's not a game changer but see no reason to switch to a nerdy clone.

Happy it's faster and now has a 64gb version, it's nice the camera has been improved and shoots hi def video.
