I’m hearing a lot of whining about the iPhone 4S in that there isn’t a new design, the screen is still 3.5″ etc etc. In all honesty so what? I like the design, I don’t want a bigger screen, as in all fairness the iPhone 4 just fits in my pocket.
So lets look at it a different way.
If you want the very latest technology, you should never buy Apple. The major exception with this was the iPad, which created the genre of a compact tablet, unlike the previous Windows tablets.
Apple is about the experience. It always has been. By that I mean the total integration. It’s seamless. That isn’t the case with a Nokia Phone, Android or a BlackBerry, the only one coming close is Windows Phone. This is true with all of their (Apple’s) devices. You don’t have to mess around with them. They just work in a very intuitive way. You pay a premium for it, but that is the experience you know you are going to get.
All have their advantages and disadvantages, however I’m used to and want the total seamless integration, and a serious upgrade over my current iPhone 4. There’s only one device that will cut it. That’s the iPhone 4S. When google or anyone else can offer me their technology with the same seamless experience, then I’ll consider jumping ship. Until then, when it’s upgrade time, I’ll stick with what I know.
