iPhone 4S has landed! Not quite what we expected

Well, the Apple conference called "Let's Talk iPhone" is over. Although everyone expected the new and revolutionary iPhone announcement in May, Apple began with long talks about iOS 5, icloud and a new series of iPod upgrades. Without a trace of Steve Jobs on stage, Tim Cook & co. announced a new phone, but not quite what we all expect it to be.

As you probably read in title, the new handset is called the Apple iPhone 4S and is exactly what it seems: an upgraded version of the already classic iPhone 4. Under the back cover glass it hides an A5 Apple processor, presint in the iPad since March, storage options 16, 32 or 64 GB, CDMA and GSM antenna in one package (which speeds up Internet up to 14.4 Mbps), plus a brand-new 8 megapixel camera, which can capture moving images in 1080p with 30 frames per second.

Say what ???
Now, is this suppose to be revolutionary? groundbreaking? Not at all!
Wow, you guys installed a dual core processor (an 8 months old processor, already installed on the iPad2), and it's suppose to be a new thing. Android phones have dual core processors and better hardware comparing to this iPhone 4S for almost half the price.

Apple says that thanks to the new dual-core processor, the phone is twice as fast as the iPhone 4 in terms of processing power and the graphics processor now runs seven times better. All this power goes to the new features like image stabilization, noise cancellation in the video shooting mode and Siri, the most important new feature available only on iPhone 4S (remember this). This will fill the role of a personal assistant, who will respond and will activate various functions of the phone just by voice recognition. Siri will receive dictation for writing command posts and will initially launch in beta. New features will be available only in English, French and German, and in time, Apple will add new languages ​​to it.

 Not again!
Siri is something new? Well, if it really does work just like in the commercial it would be brilliant, but a phone acting on what you tell it to is not really a new thing like Apple says.

iPhone 4S will be Available in the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Japan and several other countries since 14 October, following that, on October 28th the worldwide reach.
Price For America is $ 199 for 16 GB, $ 299 for 32 GB and $ 399 for 64 GB. All these prices are for two-year subscriptions concluded. As the old iPhone in April, Apple will still sell it at only $ 99 in a new edition, 8GB, with a two-year contract. We expect something similar in Europe.

If you are not yet ready to give up on the current iPhone generation or previous, starting with October 12 you will be able to update to the new IOS, which will be compatible with iPhone, iPhone 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone and iPod Touch 4 generations 3 and 4.

Here is the official video presentation:
