Agreed. It looks pretty cool to me.

it just fits for difference in needs.

but yup camera is just so 90's.............. but it still give me much better iq so i prefer to use them as main photo taken device.

Different story for travel vacation photos. I want nice pics for those, so I bring my DSLR. The iPhone won't cut it in the IQ department.

Iv'e said before P&S is basically dead. Those guys didn't bother updating their product for wi-fi, touch screen, filtering, social networks. It's the same P&S cameras they've been cranking out for years now. It's no wonder why they are trying to make the push for 4/3 cameras as some "new" camera. Guess what? Those 4/3 cameras STILL lack basic features smartphones have.

It seems it's just a spec bump. Hence the 4"S". They are talking about software of the iPhone and no more hardware...Now I know why they held it on campus...

Unless Phil says (or shows) something drastic, I'll be skipping this one. I can make do with the iPhone 4 camera and iOS 5, until iPhone 6.

because it looks like an iPhone 4.

Like the 3GS looked like an iPhone 3G.

i have s95 few months ago, if you upgrade to xz-1 there will be feature that is usually only on dslr device.

so it is getting there.

i can take photo with NR effect on xz-1, which is only found on some high end dslr , and alot of photo filter effect which is not found on the s95.

i know the s95 is the smallest compact high end device, but it still lacking alot of feature and filter which is found on new pS cam

but video shooting i think cellphone is better in miles... maybe cpu is the main issue with compact camera with video shooting.

lol back to 2010:)

Razeus Oct 4, 2011 02:33 PM

So no design change or bigger screen.:mad:
Tough pill to swallow after 16 month wait. There's no reason for this thing to be have not launch in July. Software can be updated as needed. EPIC FAIL.

Jamar Oct 4, 2011 02:36 PM

I haven't seen any mention of Sprint. :bleh:

He just showed the pictures.....looks the same as iPhone 4.

They just gave Sprint a little blurb. Wow. You figure they'd at least have their logo on a slide....

looks like steve jobs is still behind this, so 3.5 inch forever

badboy Oct 4, 2011 02:38 PM

well that was a dissapointment

logical Oct 4, 2011 02:39 PM

SKIP do not want.

wc326 Oct 4, 2011 02:39 PM

ok this is confirmed

2:38PM Sorry folks, no iPhone 5... yet....

2:38PM Wow, that's it!

2:38PM "I am so incredibly proud of this company and all of the teams who work so hard to bring all of the innovations you've seen today."

2:37PM "Now, when you look at each of these, they're great and fantastic and industry leading in and of themselves..." Tim is slowing down. Things are building up. "What puts Apple way out front is how they're engineered to work together so well."

2:37PM Called the iPhone 4S "the most amazing iPhone ever." But for how long

shrike126 Oct 4, 2011 02:39 PM

2:35PM It'll hit US, Canada, Australia, the UK, France, Germany, and Japan. In the US it'll be Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint!

Jamar Oct 4, 2011 02:40 PM

Well that is disappointing. Guess I have some thinking to do. :cry:

Razeus Oct 4, 2011 02:40 PM

This thing seems like it was thrown together at the last minute.

It's like they said "ok, guys we need to make an announcement. We are far behind but we gotta say something. We'll just hold the event on our campus. Hope for the best". The Siri feature isn't even finished. iTunes match won't be ready until end of month.

This was lacklust. I'm sticking with iPhone 4 gentlemen.

NOT a good way to start out as CEO Tim. Not at all.

_TiTaNiuM Oct 4, 2011 02:40 PM

the best part is the new 16 month product cycle.
If you want to skip the **** generation you need to wait 32 months, instead of the 24 for your contract to expire

badboy Oct 4, 2011 02:41 PM

I will get it just because my gf needs a new phone and Ill give her my iphone 4.

But I am not impressed with the 4s at all. The biggest feature "siri" I cant even use :rolleyes:

What an underwhelming event.

But, they'll still sell millions of these "new" phones.

-edit-

To whoever was saying "Apple will do more, they won't just sit on their hands for a year". Um... yes, they can and they just did.

Shadowless Oct 4, 2011 02:42 PM

iPhone 4S
 
Kinda pissed. Really wanted the bigger screen. Think I'm gonna hold off.

Other than screen size and aging aesthetic design, how is this a disappointment? It's on par/better spec'd than other phones atm...


:confused:

Seriously. Same specs with a revised design and bigger screen and you guys would be ejaculating over this thing.

ElBerryKM13 Oct 4, 2011 02:43 PM

Ruined my day... i guess i'm staying with my iphone4 for a while :(
