Wireless Wednesday–On the iPhone 4S

weBoost | October 5, 2011

This week for “Wireless Wednesday” we’re talking about Apple’s new phone, the iPhone 4S. As you probably know by now, Apple did not announce the rumored iPhone 5 yesterday. In case you missed the keynote, or want a refresher, take a look below at this excerpt from an @Engadget article.

“It’s not an iPhone mini or anything, but it’s the first iPhone with Siri. And that has to count for something, right? Right? While it’s no iPhone 5 (not even close, really), the iPhone 4S is far from being “last year’s iPhone,” and the greatly enhanced camera, bolstered A5 dual-core processor and inbuilt voice command should provide plenty of reason for folks to upgrade if they’re near the end of their contract. Furthermore, having the option on Sprint is bound to make folks already entrenched on the Now Network think twice about what their next phone will be come upgrade time.

We were able to spend a few quality moments with the refreshed iPhone 4 here at Apple’s campus, the Sprint flavor no less, and as you might expect… it’s an iPhone 4. But S-ier. Much in the same way that the 3GS improved the overall experience of the 3G, the 4S does likewise compared to the existing 4. The dual-core A5 chip is a laudatory improvement, and whisking about pages, loading the camera application and launching — well, just about everything — just feels zippier. As it should. The other major change, the antennas, weren’t readily different at a glance, but as Mr. Cook stated, you’d have to be iFixit to notice (and we’re sure they will).”

The article goes on to mention the 8 megapixel camera, the new voice command software Siri, and many other features in greater detail. To read the rest of this article, or to see it in it’s original format, click here.
