Apple Unveils the iPhone 4S… And the World Responds With a Collective Yawn…

Published October 5, 2011 - 5 Comments

Well…

That was a little anti-climatic, wasn’t it?  No iPhone 5.  No great leaps in technology to propel Apple through to the next great frontier.  Ah well… Doesn’t matter to me too much.  In my case, I still need a new phone so I will be getting one.  It was just a matter of which one.  The price of the iPhone 4 will be slashed to make room for the iPhone 4S.  So do I want one of those?  Or do I want to spend the money and get the newer one?  Either will be a considerable upgrade to what I’m currently using.

  • Dual core processor
  • 8 MP camera
  • Longer battery life
  • Siri voice recognition

Yeah… I can go for that… as long as my phone doesn’t start talking back to me…

Goes on sale here October 14.  I won’t bother trying to get to the front of the line.  Those people are stupid.  I’ve waited long enough.  I can wait a little longer.

Update:  The phone starts at $649??  That’s for the 8GB model?  Wow…   Maybe I’ll just be ordering a new 3GS for $375 instead.  I’ll go take a look at the Android phones, but I don’t think that the good ones are really much cheaper than the iPhones… but I may be wrong about that.
