Yesterday Apple, Inc. unveiled after 16 months between iPhone releases the iPhone 4S.
I was thinking what the “S” stands for.. could it be “sucker” or “scam”? I think it’s a bit of both. I think it stands for “Siri” for the must have feature of “voice activated commands”. ooh.. Since I can’t type straight.. now I show how bad my grammar is as I learn a whole set of voice activated commands!
I think the only winner of this release of the next generation of the iPhone series is Sprint (#1) and Verizon (#2). Why? Now it’s a 3 way game between AT&T, Verizon and Sprint for the same customers.. Unlimited data issue anyone?
Physically, there is no change in the way the iPhone 4S appears.. Price is standard $199 and $299 for 16 and 32 GB respectively. Battery life is better (hopefully), and it has a faster processor with a better camera. And I forgot the introduction of the main feature voice activated commands (SIRI)..
I still don’t see myself getting this latest gadget.. I’m pretty happy with my 3GS which still works fine after a few years on the T network.
In my household, I know that there will be at least one teenager that has pleaded/conned/convinced her Dad that she HAS to “pre-order” the 4GS on the VZ (“can you hear me now”) network. Of course last year.. the same child couldn’t live without her BBM on her precious Blackberry. So I’m taking this with a grain of salt.
I personally use both the 3GS for personal and business, and the iPhone 4 is hands down the winner here. Yet I still ask.. Do I really need the iPhone 4GS?
So I am going to ask you.. Are you buying the iPhone 4S to replace your iPhone 4 which I’m sure many of you are still under contract for??
