So the new iPhone is just the same phone with a few bug fixes.

And the stupid coonts out there will buy it in the millions.

Apple make 1 phone a year and even at that they can't even manage it.

It is a great marketing company I'll give them that

Oh so the much anticapted release (by retards) of the iPhone 5 turned out to be just another version of the current model with no real updates/upgrades. But most importantly it looks exactly the same as the old phone!!!!
How will people know on the train, in the park, sitting alone in the pub, that you are the possessor of the newest, shiniest piece of apple tat, if it looks the same as the old one! :cry1:

Actually I lie, there is one main upgrade. You can now talk to your iPhone like the fanboys always wanted, so you have no need for any friends/people in your life (not that you had any anyway) :agree1:


Technologically speaking it is behind the Samsung Galaxy S2 but works out more expensive.

$200 for the 16GB iPhone
$300 for the 32GB iPhone
$400 for the 64GB iPhone
$200 S2 comes with 16GB built in and capacity for a removable 32GB sd card as standard

Charging $100 dollars for extra GBs is just so Apple. Make the device unexpandable, to force users to pay a crazy premium for memory. 16GB micro sd card for the S2 would cost about $15-$20, a 32GB card $30-$40. And again thats removable storage, providing much more flexibility.


But I'm sure I will see the huddled drones all lining up outside Apple stores across the globe each release day in any case, to swap their old iPhone 4 for the same phone again (that they can converse with, and maybe they will try to marry someday). The Fanboys will laugh and mock the Fandroids despite the iTwats having inferior technology that they can only update when Apple release a (slightly) new phone...

2 weeks later, the iTwats will be bored of their new phone...

3 months later, Apple will announce the release of the iPhone 5, sending the iTwats crying back to their mommys to plead for more gold to pawn off so they can upgrade again...

...and they all lived wankily ever after.

I would buy an android phone if they had half the apps that apple have. All I was hearing 18 months ago was that all the decent app producers will be leaving Apple in their droves because you can produce much better products by using flash.

Still the android market lags behind. FFS to not even have Sky Sports when I had that on My Samsung Omnia about 4 years ago. (drained the battery in 10 minutes flat) Also why does the Racing Post app on iphone have William Hill radio but on the android it doesn't?

I would have loved to give the all singing all dancing Samsung phone a try if it didn't mean losing half the apps I rely on heavily.

As for the new iPhone, I don't understand all the consternation. When Apple upgraded from 3 to 3gs nobody moaned and that is all they have done now. I would expect the iPhone 5 to be released around spring time. That would make sense as all the 4 users will be ready for a new contract then. If they had released a 5 version this week then the knockers would have been shouting from the rooftops that they are just screwing the 4 owners forcing them to upgrade a year early.

Just one other thing beggers? Can you use the new Samsung phone in America? Or did they not manage to fit dual mode into that much bigger device? :silly:

The new Siri think looks great.

just think of the fun you can have walking past people's phones and saying, text boss "you are a coont"

But it does look like it will save you lots of time being able to talk texts rather than type them.

Will be interesting to see how the Nexus Prime shapes up, thinkits announced/revealed next week.

I imagine Siri will go the way of most voice command tech on phones, i.e. noone will use it after a week or two of owning the phone, and Scots & Geordies neednt even bother trying to use it :lol:

The only thing is, the iPhone fans are so fanatical that they will probably make every effort possible to try make Siri a success and talk to their phones constantly. I can imagine those iPhone auto-correct emails you see now and then will jump seven-fold if you are using a voice input now though :grin:

I have the Samsung Galaxy SII and I have more apps than I need.. Here's the thing.. There are so many people developing the apple apps into the android versions.. I set up my phone to install non android market based apps and I can go to individual developer sites and download their apps FOR FREE in most cases... Most of the apps on my phone are directly from these individual sites and not the android market.

I also enjoy the fact that I can have a lot of the pay apps for free by downloading a cracked version and installing it on my phone. I'm not sure if that can be on on an iPhone.

I like my new Samsung. WAY fking better than HTC, which I am not a fan of. I found their phones to be shiny and not as powerful as other brands.

The gimps are out in force condemning Apple for only making changes to the phone's internals rather than it's case. ILet the geeks go to war with each other.

My phone is 2 years old and there is a new one that will fit in the dock in my home and car - so I'm sold.
