Today Apple finally unveiled the next generation iPhone 4S. Setting aside rumors of a fully redesigned iPhone 5, this device looks EXACTLY like the iPhone 4S. Though similar to the Verizon Model the iPhone 4S packs a Dual-Core A5 Processor(currently in the iPad 2), an 8 Megapixel Camera, and 1080P HD video recording. It will be running iOS 5 out of the box with all of the previous features shown plus a big new one, Siri.
Siri is basically like the Dragon Go! app in the App Store. It basically makes your phone come alive and you being able to dictate what you want it to do. You can ask it questions like "What is the weather today" or "Text Message Eric How are you today?" and it will do as you command. It has the ability to read to you and you and respond to it without having to text. This will be perfect for times you can use your hands or while driving. Siri will also get used to your voice over time and able to recognize what you say more and more. IT'S LIKE A FERBY!
Another new feature is the Cards application where you can make post cards, greeting cards, etc. and Apple will physically print them to your friends for a fee. The fee for Apple to print/ship these is $2.99 for U.S./$4.99 International. Not too bad of a deal and you don't even have to get a pen out!
Lots of previously announced things were covered like all of iOS 5 and Apples Sales numbers. I am a bit disappointed with no redesign but hey, it's going to be a badass device.
The iPhone 4S Pre-Orders Start Friday, October 7th 2011 with an October 14th RELEASE!
