    I am considering the iPhone 4S and had a few questions. Is this 4G? Is it size of the iPhone 4s the same as iPhone 4?

    Thread moved.

    No it's not 4G and it's exactly the same size as the iPhone 4.

    Thanks. Will people buy this if iPhone 5 is nearby?

    Nodody knows if the iPhone is nearby. Just more speculation like that which fueled the current wave of mass disappointment.

    It's not LTE but doesn't HSPA 14 qualify as what's being passed for 4G in the US?

    With that capability, yes perhaps. But, it's still not 4G.

    This is the iPhone 5. It just has another name. Next year's (fall 2012 is my guess) phone may or may not be called the iPhone 6, but it's unlikely that it will be called the iPhone 5.

    Yes, people will buy it. It looks awesome.

    Just curious. We went from the 3G >> 3GS >> 4 >> 4S...

    Why would they skip the iPhone 5 when they went from the 3G to 3GS. Not trying to argue, but seriously interested.

    3G to 3GS was in market free of competition. Today there are 4"-4.5" retina quality displays about to release with the competition and the expectation was that Apple would meet if not lead.

    What does that information have to do with the numbering sequence of the iPhone?

    Right don't know where my head was at. Honestly thought I was replying to a comment that the 3GS didn't get as much flack as the 4S.

    Sorry.

    It's all good. I know you are like me and completely blown away that we didn't get a phone that would launch the space shuttle and charge itself without needing to be plugged in.

    Off to rant why those fifth party rumors taken as gospel didn't turn out to be true and then slit my wrists in frustration that I wont have to buy a new Otterbox for a new design phone.

    (((tongue in cheek)))

    Seriously though, it's all good. I'm working on 3 days with only 12 hrs sleep so I was truly confused.

    Just for the record. The iPhone 4S is available FREE with a contract in Canada.

    http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/10/07/future-shop-1-day-sale-iphone-4-16gb-free-on-3-year/

    3yrs contracts are the norm up here but you can renew with full hardware subsidies at the 2yrs mark so it's really a 2yrs contract if you keep flipping your phone.

    Anyway, I wanted to post this since you guys love to connect Android's rise to the fact that the phones are given away for free, or that that it's pricing is related to it's quality.

    Well the iP4S is free. Hmmm, I guess it makes sense since the form and display are 15months old the day you get it. :p
