My Take on the 4S! - It's a Great Phone who cares what it's called.
Key things that seem not to be getting much recognition....
- Time to photo. I hope it's as fast as apple say as I miss so many shots with my 3GS. And when I've taken my amazing quality pics they will already be on my pc and iPad for me to look at and play with, thanks iCloud.
- Switchable antennas. People have been walking around waiting / wanting 4G, Apple just solved the issue without waiting for the networks. This is something we can all use now! Genius!
I'm not fussed about what apple have called the phone, it's got kick ass specs, and Im not that interested if it looks any different to the last model, it's about what it can do right?
Screen size - current size is perfect for me. I don't like these massive htc things people are walking around with. Also, if they change the screen size wouldn't everyone have to tweak their apps? Don't fix it, it ain't broken.
NFT - when it's ready, they'll do it and it will be kick ass! Suggest until then we look at what companies they are buying up in that field and speculate!
Anyway, I'll be in the queue next Friday probably killing time playing with my iPad.
Buy as first iPhone, definitely!
Buy as upgrade to iPhone 4, probably not.
Buy as upgrade to 3GS, hell yeah!
By the way, I think 20 years down the road when we look back at this year we will see that this is where it all changed. iCloud / Siri is going to let use the tech to do what we actually want with an ease of use never seen before. The future is simple, the future just works!
Makes you realise how far behind some people are! RIP RIM by end Q3 2014 me thinks.
