They would only be 2 years behind if a 4G network came out a year ago.

Since 4G will most likely be the existing network when they add 4G, they will technically be current.

But since 3G is still the dominant network by a very wide margin, they are still current.

just my 2 cents

One of the things I'm noticing for the keynote is when they demo Siri. You push and hold the Home button for two seconds and you can ask away. What happened to force closing an app that happens to lock up?

4g or upload and download speeds the same as 4g - what's the difference?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Apple got burned on the move to 3G and they are not going to do it again. Once 4G is really mainstream (in the US) they will introduce it on the iPhone. Right now it's still early in the infrastructure process and 4G isn't everywhere yet so it's no real loss.

Apparently that won't happen in the US. Sure the phone can do it, but the carriers don't provide the capability. Yet.

I don't understand why so many people are getting upset of it. I think it's a very nice upgrade. People are just mad because it's not labeled iPhone 5. So to the mind, your not getting as good of a device. Your gauging it to be second best, while it is not. I have never had a smart phone and was waiting on this phone for my upgrade. I AM PUMPED!

I'm not quite clear on the "disappointment" about the iPhone 5. The iPhone 4S has *every* feature (plus some) that was reported to be in the iPhone 5 -- it even has what many cell providers CALL 4G speeds, so what EXACTLY is the problem? Not expensive enough or something?

Aside to a.j.c: Siri *is* in the software, but requires a LOT of processing power, so it won't run on a single-core cpu like all the earlier iPhones have.

Personally I think this is the perfect update -- it's not so mind-blowingly amazing (well, apart from Siri) that everyone who's recently bought an iPhone 4 feels cheated, but it's also got more than enough new cool stuff in it that all those millions of people who bought a new iPhone and who's two-year contracts are nearing the end are ready to upgrade. Great timing, really.

The real "iPhone 5" is now clear to come out in 2012, which is ACTUALLY the fifth anniversary of the iPhone AND when genuine (not marketing hype) fourth-gen cell networks should be reasonably widespread (at least in the bigger cities). Seems like some nice symmetry to me, personally.

I agree with chase' main points. I waited to make the switch to iPhone, and the 4S suits me just fine. Couldn't be happier, in fact. We're hearing disgruntle from existing iPhone users who have a perfectly good phone and for some reason wanted to buy a new one, but not happy gruntle from lurking switchers like me. (I assume "gruntle" means contented.)

I am not due an upgrade on my iP4 until next year anyway so I wouldn't be getting the 4s yet anyway but they look like good upgrades to me. People are complaining about the screen being the same as the outgoing model but in my opinion even if you do increase the size then you would still not be able to view webpages much better than on the ip4, for this reason I bought an iPad2 and love it! The new phone has a much better processor and quicker speeds in everyday which is always good but none of this makes the iP4 suddenly a crap phone because something new is out. Thevone thing I do like is the bigger storage which for me would mean that I could get all my music on the phone instead of just certain playlists then I could give my older iPod classic to one of my kids!
