Known to others as Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 4S is now out!
As i am waiting also for the release of the new iPhone 5, im a bit sad at the same time because with the news iPhone 4S will be available to some other countries at the end of October or sometime in November but this does not include Philippines, maybe its november to december here. :(
Hubby's birthday will be on October 24 and he'll be celebrating his birthday on October 22 (Sat) so i have no choice but to buy the iPhone 4 as my wedding anniversary, birthday and thank you gift.
Apple officially announced the iPhone 4S at today’s event. It will be available to pre-order on Friday October 7th, and will go on sale on October 14th. It has a new antenna design that allows for file transfers twice as fast as the iPhone 4, as well as a voice recognition function for a whole new hands free experience. The iPhone 4S will also be powered by Apple’s Dual Core A5 processor.
The iPhone 4S will be a World Phone, so it will work on both CDMA and GSM networks. This means there will not be different versions for different carriers. Sprint has been added to the list of available carriers in the U.S. for both the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4.
The iPhone 4S will have a 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB model available priced at $199, $299, and $399. The phone will be released in both Black and White. The iPhone 4S will have an 8 megapixel camera and will shoot video in full 1080p with video stabilization. The iPhone 4 had only a 5 megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p video. The new custom lens on the iPhone 4S will produce much sharper, crisper images. The image signal processor in the A5 chip is very advanced, especially when partnered with the new iOS 5.
The iPhone 4S will launch in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany and Japan on October 14th, less than 2 weeks away. iPhone 4S will be available worldwide to 22 additional countries by the end of October including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
With the difference of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, i'd rather choose the iPhone 4 because the OS is already tested and if the difference is only the camera, hubby is not fond of using it so why buy 4S, right?
