Looks like you've managed to get yourself wrapped up in the hype and speculation, haven't you? iOS 5 in an impressive and welcome update, even without Siri. iCloud and its integration looks excellent. iTunes Match, too. The internal hardware upgrades are substantial and, in some cases, class-leading. Being disappointed because the screen isn't bigger or because external case design remains the same sounds like whining to me. I don't think either of those features necessarily make for a better experience. Apple clearly agrees. I’m willing to call it now and confidentially predict the iPhone’s display remains 3.5” for many generations, if not permanently. Despite what many of you believe, the current dimensions make for the optimal one-handed experience. It is highly unlikely Apple will compromise usability for the sake of such superficial wow factor. The rumors of a teardrop design, a bigger display, a this, a that; all of it based on unconfirmed speculation and most likely due to people trolling gullible third-party manufacturers. Why did they hold the keynote on their campus? Likely due to an uncertain schedule due to unfinished software. Despite Apple’s clout, booking a large venue like Moscone requires advance planning. Apple wasn’t attempting to temper expectations or cater to Cook’s alleged inexperience at presenting. Also, Cook’s transition to CEO has had zero impact on the launch of the iPhone 4S beyond the keynote. Devices are planned years in advance and Jobs very likely oversaw this launch from its genesis right up until the day he handed over the reigns. Apple's only mistake, if you could call it that, is failing to announce the phone at this year's WWDC, alongside iOS 5 and iCloud. You’ve all seen it and you’re over it. Having said that, the delay in announcing the iPhone has nothing to do with manufacturing problems or because of competitive litigation; it’s due to software -- iOS and iCloud. It behooves Apple to make certain both products are absolutely ready. They obviously don’t want another repeat of MobileMe. The company has never played the game of specs. They aren’t interested. They don’t make products for you hyper-obsessed phone geeks; they make phones for average consumers. People who want their phone to work with no fuss. They want a polished, elegant, friendly experience. And that’s what they get. You don’t understand Apple, the industry, the market, or your fellow consumers. The only people who complain about the display size or physical design are the sort that always want the latest shiny thing. You’ll never be satisfied. Enjoy your Android. For now. See you in June when Apple announces something new and shiny.
