As inevitable as the rising of the sun and the crashing of the stock exchange is the announcement that Apple are putting out yet another super duper smart phone into a market so flooded with such devices you need a snorkel to avoid drowning in all the Super AMOLED screens. So what does Apple’s latest do-everything gadget actually do?
Well much the same thing as the iPhone 4 did only faster and without that annoying antenna problem. The iPhone 4S uses the same case and screen as the iPhone 4 but its insides are rather different.
…it eliminates the pesky call drop out…
This time sporting an A5 processor and dual core graphics the same processor and graphics used by the iPad2, the phone also boasts GSM and CDMA for better call quality and HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) so you can download apps and music faster than ever. Twin antennas allow for high quality calling and as the phone can switch between the two it eliminates the pesky call drop out problem of its predecessor. An 8 megapixel camera shoots at 3264 x 2448 pixels giving it around 60 percent more pixels than the iPhone 4.
Software-wise the iPhone 4S will run the new iOS 5 and will support a voice control function called Siri, that will allow users to dictate notes to the phone and it will also read out your notifications and texts, nifty. So far t-mobile, Orange, O2, Three and Vodaphone all have confirmed they’ll be stocking the iPhone 4S on its release on 14 October.
…cornered the market…
Whatever your view on Apple and their juggernaut of shiny products they seem to have cornered the market in tinkering with their existing products just enough to get people gagging for their latest release, so put 14 October in your diaries, I’m sure there’s an app for it, as Apple reinvents the wheel once again.
