Straight up: I'm a little disappointed with the new iPhone 4S. I was hoping for more. My expectations were higher. I wanted something extra special, largely because I've been waiting for it for So. Very. Long.
The bounty was plentiful, though there were a few pieces of rotten fruit inside, according to our cynical commenters. Still, if you want to catch up on all the announcements, here they are in one handy list:
It's been over four years since the first iPhone came out, and a lot has changed, from the screen to the CPU to the form factor. How drastic has this change been over the years? Here's a look at the iPhone's evolution, from 1 to 4S.
We know the iPhone 4S will be going on sale October 14th, but there may be shortages. To ensure you get one before they become unfashionable, you can pre-order at Carphone Warehouse or Three, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone.
The iPhone 4S is here with a dual-core A5 processor, more storage space and a better camera. It's a minor update, sure, but how does it compare to other top phones (not to mention its predecessor, the iPhone 4)? Quite well, actually.
Apples new Siri personal assistant is crazy crazy stuff. Being able to talk to your phone like a real person is the stuff of Sci-Fi. Here's the catch: It's limited to the province of the new iPhone 4S.
Apple just announced the iPhone 4S and it looks exactly the same as the iPhone 4! Does that mean it's plagued by the iPhone 4's notorious attenuation problem? No, not anymore. This time around, they fixed the antenna.
Apple's new iPhone 4S is just last year's design loaded with a new brain and more memory. It will run your apps faster and Apple's new iOS5's Assistant, an artificial intelligence program that listens and interprets your orders. It just looks exactly the same.
The next iPhone, whatever it's called, will be announced tomorrow. Our Yankee older brother will be bringing together the best coverage from our amazing friends all around the web, like gdgt live, Ars Technica's liveblog and more, over at live.gizmodo.com.
Tomorrow you will see Assistant working on iOS 5 and, presumably, the iPhone 4S. Assistant is an artificial technology that interprets what you are saying, like the Enterprise computer. It's like, magic, they say. This video mockup shows how it works.
Well, this is surprising. A reader over at TUAW saw both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S pop up on a US network's website. Not only is Cincinnati Bell not a big carrier like other US networks, but it in the prepaid section. What the?
