Im so disappointed Apple didn't release an iPhone 5 with new design, and specs. However the iPhone 4s is a much better intermediate place holder than say the 3Gs... in terms of upgrades was. That new A5 and Dual Core chips and the increase in size to 64gb are enticing. I do love the new iOS wit the Siri voice commands which should be interesting in the winter, if your hands are gloved and you don't have capacitive gloves to use the screen. As far as people holding out and not buying this new iPhone 4s? Well. Apple doesn't exactly need America or Europe to make its profits. China will be ready to do that. Shanghai Apple store saw 100,000 people upon opening day. If thats any indicator of public interest then Apple stands to make significant profits in the non recession countries. Ah well. Next year people. Expect a new design.
