The news is all over the place, about an hour or so ago it was announced that Apple’s next phone will just be an upgraded iPhone4 and will be called an iPhone4S. I bet they saw the same video we showed here on advertising in Hawaii that had the iPhone 5 with the removable floating keyboard Ala’ CSI computers and the videos you could watch in mid-air. After watching that, if the phone I was about to release didn’t do some cool things like that, I suspect I’d just release an up grade too. And get to work on the real iPhone 5 that will hopefully blow our minds.
Bummer thought, lots of expectations for today’s big announcement. But, if you don’t have a flip camera or don’t like to carry two things around with you, the new phone has a much better camera and video action. Here are some of the highlights of the upgrades:
8 Mega-Pixel camera-up from 5 Mega-Pixels
Takes pictures in 1.1 seconds. the Droid Bionic takes 3.7 seconds.
Better video quality in High Def at 1080p
and a couple other things that don’t much excite me since my iPhone 3GS stays on its charge for a long time and I don’t usually listen to music on it, still listen on my computer.
Here they are: 8 hours of talk time and 40 hours to listen to music
Well, what do you think? Maybe I’ll try to snag a cheap iPhone4, at least my camera will be better. But overall, not a fun day in the electronic smart phone world. Some guy on some blog said it probably best: “Dont give me a letter, I want an Integer” then I’m excited. Pretty sure he was on the Los Angeles Times blog, some pretty good comments on there!
