New iPhone 4s .....

Just had the email with the new 4s info and operating system, some very nice features for those non-Apple haters

http://www.apple.com/uk/iphone/

The 'Siri' voice activation stuff looks amazing, and knowing Apple there's a good chance it might actually work too!!

Pointless. You'd get fed up with that quickly... and you'd look very odd talking to yourself.

That's just a rip off of the Android features - handy notifications pull down! That's been on my HTC for ages!

and the 8mp camera , got that on my htc i've had all year too so nothing ground breaking there. it also shoots HD, not sure of 1080p right enough think its 720p

thought this was supposed to be a iphone 5? why is it a 4s? is it not different enough from the 4 to be called a 5?
sounds like a few minor upgrades to me...

Why would anyone want to watch a video about it, the cheesey adverts on the tv are enough to make me want to top myself.

i have to install quick time to watch the video? no thanks. last time i installed quick time it screwed up all the file extention associations on my pc, and slowed it down a lot. that was years ago though, so that raises 3 points:
1, quicktime MIGHT be better now, but theres no call for it except apples web site
2, why have i not needed to install quicktime in about 6 years? is it because its an apple player, and they're the only ones still pushing it?
3,seems to come under apple's thing of 'our way or not at all' why can't i watch it in flash? oh yeah...

They were designing the new Iphone 5 but due to Apple stocks on the market falling price, they rebranded it as Iphone 4s with gadgets of the 5 in order for their stocks to raise value.

Cancelled. Please say name

I thought Apple stocks were pretty sound and had gone up in the last 12months?!?
Give or take take market changes due to the world financial crisis sending the prices of everything up and down.....
I think a lot of the other tech companies would love to be in Apples position that they have so much money in hard cash that they do not know what to invest it in?!?!?!

It's interesting that now Apple are the big dogs they've become the the corporate monsters everybody loves to hate. 15 years ago they were the cuddly and slightly hippy face of the tech industry, fighting the 'good fight' against those nasty Microsoft monsters. I have been using Microsoft, Apple and Google products extensively, and in almost equal measures for well over 20 years now (not Google for that long obviously) and never really bought into the cuddly/hippy Apple image (in fact, I've found they've always been a cow of a company to deal with). The truth is, and without any prejudice, Apple products just seem to work better than anything else on the market. My HTC Desire HD fell a long way short of my iPhone 4 in terms of ease of use, functionality and general operational smoothness (all things I consider to be of paramount importance in a smartphone). I really wanted Android to kick Apple's ar** but as yet this isn't happening. The same for their computers. One of the most staunch (almost evangelical) Apple users I know was until 2 years ago the hardware copyrighter for PC Format magazine. Pretty much everyone I know that has extensive experience on both sides of the fence with say the same... There I've said it.

Why do you want all that nonsense on a phone? in my experience it has an adverse effect when using the device as a phone so seems like a massive waste of money (Like when I bought a game boy and then realised I never ride public transport and only can use it when I'm home and have much better non portable things).

I think Apple's products are very good - especially the iPad, which is brilliant - but there is no way I'm going to pay the high premium they demand.

So, I may be impressed by the iPhone, but I own a HTC Desire (which I think is an excellent device anyway, and does everything I want).

iPhones don't have Google Navigation......... for me it's game over after that!

On a more serious note I have a works iPhone and a personal Android phone, coincidentaly both on the same network - I'm NEVER tempted at weekends or when I'm on holiday to swap the cards over. Yes the iPhone is a bit slicker but there's just something about it that I don't like - can't put my finger on what it is mind you lol

I was due an upgrade in September and was going to wait for iphone 5 but couldn't as my Blackberry decided to give up. Would have been gutted to have waited only to be confronted with the fact there is no iphone5!!!

I upgraded to Galaxy S2 after some research and I am amazed at how bloody brilliant it is. Already has all the bits the iphone 4s has but with a bigger screen and thinner case...

Not sure why anyone was expecting an iPhone 5, there was a 2 year gap between the 3G and the 4 and in between was the 3GS, the same phone on the outside but better hardware inside. Same as this year, faster processor, better battery life, better camera and 1080p video (the 4 has 720p)

Ive had a few different smart phones and have had a good play with the others, my work mate has just got a Samsung galaxy 2 and apart from a better camera maybe its no where near as nice to use as the iphone 4. Android just seems they cobbled together and too much going on. I like the way apple keep a restraint on their os as it keeps it neat and tidy and it looks like someone has actually put some thought into it!

If google decided to pull a few more of their features off the iphone like maps etc. then things might start to go in favour of the android phones. But as it is, for me the iphone wins hands down.

And I havent mentioned the way the iphone 4 is built, there as been no phone built as well or has looked as good (the last one in my opinion of course!)

It's all hype. Samsung supplies the iphone parts like chips and screens so they need each other to keep the market going.
