    see I dont think it's 4G it looks more like HSPDA+ which is 3G technology but made to work a bit faster.

    Not that it matters in the UK since we dont have 4G anyway but it'll probably matter a bit more in the US hence the slides theyve just shown saying it's as fast as all the 4G phones out there.

    I'm not so bothered about the actual design. I just want the new OS.

    Particularly the software that reminds me to do something as I leave the house!! :yes:

    Would also like an app called 'Find My Cat'. Perhaps Apple will create new collars which you can track....? Saves me walking round the estate going 'psss here puss!':wiggle:

    Certainly a bit of anti climax to be honest. Though I'm not comfortable about using 'climax' and 'sister' in the same sentence!:nono::point:

    Thought they would at least done a double whammy of 4s and iPhone 5 at the same time. :yes:

    First time I've ever seen an Apple keynote look like a QVC deal of the day.

    OOOO and the box it comes in is actually really nice and shiny, if you turn it over you can see pictures of the phone all over it and again very glossy. The phone itself can actually make calls YES IT CAN !!!! and Im just going to call angela across the studio to show how and look! no wires!!!! WOW!!! ok well I've been told 57.89% of stock has ALREADY GONE! so better get on the phone quick if you want one....

    I am quite disappointed about the whole 'fanfare' :thumbs down:

    Lets hope the next one would be much better.. however, I am looking forward to IOS 5

    I for one will not be upgrading my phone until iPhone 5 :nono:

    I dont THINK any UK providers have come out with their plans yet but they will be over the coming hours/days.

    I can imagine the 3gs free on a contract yeah and the original 4 being much cheaper. heck you can get a 4 free now but the contract is about 40 a month. So the question really is at what level contract will they be free/cheap :)

    I think I'll still upgrade just because the camera will be nice to have, and my contract is up next month :unsure: There's nothing there that I'll NEED, however a lot of it is very nice and I'm sure as usual the apps will develop in such a way that you'll be glad of the extra speed of the 4s. I remember not being keen on the 3gS but when actually using it, it was a BIG improvement :yes:

    I'd have still liked a new design though- perhaps I'll just go for the white one in order to make it feel a bit 'new' :yes:
