Damn, it's tempting. I'm getting rather sick of my Blackberry, and since I won't have to leave Sprint...

Apple unveils faster, more powerful iPhone 4S

basically an update . . .iOS5, better camera, speedier, sexier graphics and siri, you're very own personal assistant . . . and no, size does not matter (unless we're talking gigabytes )


and I'm signing up kramwest . . . my current plan expires sooooooooooooooooooooon so it just makes sense to upgrade to the latest phone . . . well, that's my story and I'm sticking with it

oh, and that they are giving away the 3GS with any 8gb models purchased . . . they have just solved the unending argument between the hublet and the oldest kidlet over who will get my old phone when I upgrade

I do hear you
I have a 2007 iPhone, my $68 a month cell phone bill is very appealing.
Being single, I can't get a price break with a family plan.

I talk, email and do about 50 texts a month. I use a lot of wifi, that is increasingly available for podcasts and public radio, etc. I do use the camera, it is not great at all, but better than no picture.

I just want a bigger screen. I have to believe the 5 will have one.
So do I jump over to an Android for 2 years? and then come back to the iPhone 5?

I saw that, I may check it out and see how much my phone bill will go up for getting the 3G. I could use that for 2 years and then get a 5.


The 4 (8 gig) is only $99, I will have to analyze the screen resolution, that is most important to me. I always end up upselling myself.

Well, I'm guessing I could get an 8GB iPhone 4S for free from Sprint since my term is up and my wife is a premium member (or some sort of bullshit).
I've sworn not to put all of my eggs in one basket, but the simplicity of having all Apple products and OSs is really tempting now.

the price is right

I know once you leave RIM you will be happy with either the Android or iPhone.
Whenever anyone switches they seem to become true-believers for their choice.

I have absolutely no complaints with my 3Gs at all - it's a cracker of a phone - I'd be tempted to hang out for the much speculated redesigned 5 if not for the new camera (I can't be shizzled carrying too much 'stuff' around) and the already mentioned plan renewal . . .

Wonder why they were not able to make some quicker progress on the iPhone line in 15 months since the iPhone 4. Maybe there were supply chain issues....



Looks like we are looking at an iPhone 5 in Q2 2012, alongside an iPad 3 with a Retina display. That is going to be a hell of an event. Apple stock will rebound just fine.

the more I think about this, I should just move over to Android,

iPhone came out in Jan 2007, five years later and the 4S is still only a 3.5 screen.

Why? Because Apple does not care about what people want. Apple creates products that people don't even know they want, and then people tell themselves they want, and they buy. The model works, great for Apple and the sheeple are happy.

If I want a bigger screen? Apple's solution for me is to buy an iPad.

Why would they make a 4.3 -4.5 screen? That would slow down iPad sales.

Shockingly people seem to be upset that Apple... - White Whine - A Collection of First-World Problems

the leaked pictures of the iPhone 6 look pretty good,
might be worth waiting 18 months
