I know, you are already aware of it, but still as the tradition goes, we should begin with a launch story for the latest iPhone sibling in the wild- the iPhone 4S. Just brought to selves at the “Town Hall” (the very same place where the first generation of iPod was introduced in 2000) at Apple’s Cupertino Campus, I like the majority of you were getting closer to the events unfolding live via famous tech blogs and social networking websites such as Twitter and Facebook.
Well, the iPhone 4S has finally thwacked the selves, and similar to a lot of us hoped, the 4S isn’t the low-end iPhone model that will double as an assistant for the iPhone5 rumored to be released during very this year. Actually, the now prior generation iPhone 4 will be on sale as a minimally-priced option to the iPhone 4S in markets all over the world.
So, what’s new? Well, if you have a look at its external appearance, it looks a lot like its previous phone. There is no change made here. Its display size, design and even the resolution of screen is the very same that you had seen in iPhone 4. Nevertheless, some drastic change has surely taken place within the confines of that thin, sleek aluminum shell. Apple, within the same confines, has integrated the feat –rich smartphone with a processor that runs faster than the earlier one, i.e. A4 chip. Known as A5, the powerful processor sprints on the iPad2. Besides, the integrated graphics chip also beats the heat of its older friends. With the incorporation of all these, the iPhone4 looks dwarf in front of iPhone 4S. Isn’t that true?
The iPhone 4S is too in-built with a camera of 8 mega pixels. The built-in camera brags of a new image sensor whereby you can snap up superb quality of pictures. I wonder whether it could bear the heat of the latest camera phones such as Nokia N8. However, the 4S definitely gives complex to N8 in terms of its video recording capability. Your iPhone can now shoot 1080p videos! Isn’t it great?
Well, it’s yet to be seen how the 4S is going to fare against the Samsung Galaxy S II– the orgasm originator handset for Android’s buffs. Apple itself opines that they’ve spruced up the antenna, at the same time, in other way round; it wants to tell us that this year there will be no antennagate.
Besides, it has been said that there will not be any other version of this handset, as a minimum, in the following months that’ll back up LTE networks. The 3G network support, however, has been augmented and the iPhone 4S now allows for speedy downloads of around 14.4 Mbps, thanks to HSDPA 4G support.
In addition to the iPhone 4S, Apple also curtained off the iOS 5 that has around 200 novel feats –entailing the similar striking cards application that you can use to send physical postcards to any US address from any part and place of the world.
The forte of iPhone 4S is the addition of Siri feature, an enhanced Voice Control attribute. As we earlier pointed out, this sidekick feat is advanced and avant-garde version of the barebones Voice Command app, and, at present, is in its latest form, it is capable of getting abstract queries. You can use Siri to conduct almost everything your handset is capable of – but sans of making use of your hands and simply by having a talk to it. So, the first impression of iPhone 4S, up till now, is cool enough but if any of its feat is found to be having any glitch, the reputation of Apple will be marred to great extent.
iPhone 4S is to be released on October 14, 2011 in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K., France, Germany & Japan. The new smartphone will also make its presence felt in 22 more nations from October 28. Let’s have a look at the price list of this new wonder of technology
iPhone 4S is priced $199 for 16GB model, $299 for 32GB model, and $399 for 64GB model.
So, are you ready to get one?
