For a while now I've been toying with the idea to make the transition to Mac. Bored with the usual windoze OS and wanting something different, Apple seems to be gaining more and more popularity as the computer and OS of choice. I've tried Ubuntu, the very friendly non techy Linux offering which I have to say is extremely good. However it's not loaded enough for my needs.
So Apple have finally launched the new 4S... But was it worth the wait?
With a new 8 mega pixel camera and HD 1080p recording, A5 processor Apple claimed that it may look the same but inside it's all new!? It will run the new iOS5 however which does come with Siri, the long awaited voice activation assistant which would prove useful. Will launch on October 14th in the UK with 16, 32, and 64GB capacity.
Apart from the awesome camera is it worth the upgrade? Well, for me no, it's not. The price of the iPhone 4 will drop as mobile companies try to shift the 4S, so if you still have a 3xx, save yourself some cash and get a cheaper 4!
There is rumour that Apple will launch the 5 in early 2012, I think I'll be patient and hang on until then. In the meantime, I guess Apple will still sell bucket loads of the 4S as die hard fans and general suckers will be swallowed by the powerful Apple marketing machine.
It will be interesting to see what prices these are thrown out there for, if the phone itself is a disappointment then the price will surely put everyone off in these austere times...
