    Bad move on their part, having a new CEO and not releasing a new phone of course you'll have a flux in the market. There are a lot of people hating on this as well (even as fanboy/girls). I mean phones are phones but there are a lot of people who can't live without one :p

    Ahahahahahahahahaha, delayed the launch 5 months and still couldn't come up with any decent features to add to justify a model number. Also the first time they've ever broken the naming, generation convention due to it. Shambles.


    Also, look at this marketing. We can't show how we're better than everyone else, so here is a graph showing we finally offer the same thing other phones have for months. Notice how they miss off the Galaxy S2 which is their main rival, as it's speed is 21mbps.

    How have they managed to still not included a microSD slot?

    EDIT: I like how they compare their speeds to an Atrix 4G, a phone that's been out since February :p

    i think i did a master stoke going for the GSII instead of waiting for the IP4S

    But really 14mbps HSDPA i can only get 5mbps max on my network

    anyone getting 10mbps+ i would be shocked to see :infinity:

    I only get 1.5 mbps on HSPA ... not going to complain since I only pay $25/month for unlimited talk, text and data =P.

    I presume that's CAD? I pay $13.50 CAD for 900 mins, unlimited texts and data, so about $~2 less but not unlimited voice.

    Its funny how my Galaxy S 4G (HSDPA, 21 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps) is still faster in terms of Data speed than then new one.

    North America is god damn expensive in terms of cell pricing. The only reason my plan is so cheap is because I'm with a new carrier that just launched last year lol, and their Back-to-School sale was their $25 plan w/ unlimited data (normally a $10/month add-on)

    ... and yes, all prices I listed is/was in Canadian Dollars.

    Apple is not samsung or nokia or HTC. it doesnt need to change their design every 3 months.

    Ok but it has been many years and the design is exactly the same as the previous 2.

    If Mercedes made the exact same shape of car for 3 years people would not buy it.

    And specification-wise it's still behind Samsung Galaxy SII

    Wow, they really ****ed up this time... What annoys me even more is that their marketing will try to sell it to customers as a top product. Which it clearly isn't...

    i have an iphone 4 and dont give two ****s about this "4S" garbage. i suppose if you still have an iphone 3 or something and really want to upgrade then yeah but otherwise it's not worth the price when the normal iphone 4 offers about the same :I

    Ah this is exactly what I expected, an "S" model. I am more looking forward to iOS 5. Some nice features added to it.
