    S II or Prime? That's my decision now. See you next year Apple, maybe you can get your **** together.

    Agreed. I would say this is a major *******-up by Apple.

    It's disappointing, yes. Android though? Not a chance!

    Incredibly disappointed.

    Looks like investors are too.

    call me crazy, but i don't think Apple is too concerned with the minuscule population of cell phone geeks that are overly-concerned with having a larger screen and 4G. when everything is said and done the 4S will replace the 4 as the top-selling smartphone.

    It's scary that there are still people who will disagree. I can't see why. Today was a joke.

    Seems like the keynote speeds were based on GSM. The iPhone 4 on AT&T is fast now speeds on the 4S will be faster on HSPDA.

    It's very disappointing but as I'm a Dev, I'm still sticking with Apple. Fingers crossed for better things next year.

    The worst Keynote and the worst phone they have done/made. They introduced two features basically. Lame.

    Apple "blew it"? I doubt that...same bellyaching I heard when the 3GS was released...yet it still flew off the shelves...hopefully I can just walk up and get one without a hassle since there should be no fanboy parade

    Android phone? Sure, why not. The phones hardware has really caught up and surpassed the iPhone. That mixed with the UI helps offer a stable decent user experience. A Galaxy Tab though.... wtf are you smoking to even consider one?

    Did you even watch the keynote? I bet you didn't...

    Lets see:
    -Browsing on par with 4G speeds from a 3G phone.
    -Amazing power and great battery life.
    -Siri is honestly cool (which is funny because I thought I'd never use it).
    -New and improved camera.
    -New iOS

    How is that not a good improvement? How did Apple blow it? I hope you realize technology doesn't evolve as fast as Macrumors readers think it does.

    People expect too much. If you want something amazingly better go invent it.

    I feel the same way and it drives me crazy that I feel that way. That's the reason apple can get away with this crap.

    Only way we can make them feel it is by making our voices heard with our wallets. And we all know we'll end up getting the 4S anyway.

    well, looks like this fanboy, will be waiting for the next one to come out, there is no way I am renewing a 2 year contract with att for that! They have lost their minds! I will be sticking with the 4 till the next gen is finally out. I am wondering if the wwdc next spring will finally bring the phone we were expecting.:confused:

    Yeah it definitely wasn't the upgrade I was hoping for, but I really don't like Android enough to keep it for one more year, so I will be getting the 4S.
