First of all, it has been forewarned by many not to be disappointed, the iPhone 4S was expected by the bulk of speculators, factory photos, etc. With the exception of some leaked design drawings of the teardrop prototype and some proactive case manufacturers trying to capitalize, there was absolutely no physical evidence of a redesign. I am thinking Apple is looking to do their major redesigns to coincide with the 2 year contract upgrades of the many that bought iPhone 4 upon release. How many of those buyers would be willing to part with the off contract pricing? Besides, do you really feel this design is THAT old? Nobody has come close to the hardware, and no one device has outsold it. Please don't forget that sales have not slowed down for the iPhone 4, and I am sure it won't for the 4S. It's an innovative design with innards we wanted, no? Break it down, the camera, as well as the camera software rivals most compact digital cameras available on the market today. We got a VERY capable dual core processor, from what I've been reading from those who got to use them hands on, it speeds up an already fast platform. If they put in a faster processor, chances are you probably wouldn't notice the speed difference, but you would definitely notice the battery life difference. On top of that, it looks like one of the best resolution displays on the market will benefit greatly from the better graphics processor. I am curious if they are also giving it the RAM bump to the 1 gig, if it performs as nicely as I'm reading, I don't think many will care. I speak for myself, and I am sure many others that the 64GB was MORE than welcome, if we didn't get that, I would had been extremely disappointed. I was joking with a couple people saying if that was the only upgrade we get I will be happy. I'm sure plenty of people could care less, but I was not so crazy about only having 3/4 of my collection able to fit, and that was by downgrading to 128kbps. And with the amount of high quality apps, I've had the annoyance of figuring what to keep and what to remove. The 64gb upgrade probably got me about as excited as many who would had gotten the iPhone 5. I don't know about anyone else, but coming from having Android as a stopgap platform until Verizon had finally gotten iPhone, I did miss the drop down notifications, and the superior voice control of Android. I am happy they seemed to had bypassed the abilities with this SIRI. It appears they have taken voice control to another level, not to mention the gps location based notifications, think about it, for those who easily forget things.....going to the store, as soon as you come within the proximity, you get your reminder to get the milk you probably would had forgotten? I'm sorry if I'm coming across as a fanboy, but I am one that is really looking forward To this. It seems like such a shame so many are judging this phone based just looking at the outside aesthetics of the device, that seems like that is only thing the 4 and 4S will have in common I have read a lot about iOS 5 and it seems like a much more major upgrade then I think many are going to realize. coming from a Droid X before the iPhone, I can attest it was not very portable, and the extra less than 1 inch did not make the big difference I think many would think there would be. I'm sure there are many that feel the same as me, I am just surprised that there are so many that aren't seeing the big picture on this one. At the same time, If you dislike it that much.....it is nice to have choices . More competition equals better innovation.
