    Which fail on so many sites. Especially those like finance.yahoo.com, finance.google.com and just about any interactive financial sites you care to name. I know by experience. I own an ipad and tried everything under the sun.

    Reason alone I'm getting a Windows 8 tab as soon as they drop. I had an iPad 2 and I can't tell you how frustrating the lack of flash was when trying to access most any professional (Auto, Real Estate, and Finance) websites. Desktop emulator mode on Windows 8 will let me run trading software and various other professional apps. WIN!

    I haven't read through this thread, but I can tell you that I've been an avid iPhone follower since the 3G in June 2008. I'm pretty pissed about the garbage they're trying to pass off as the next iPhone and will be switching as soon as an acceptable Android model is released. That will likely be the Prime.

    For the record, my g/f and friends would have told you that such a change was impossible as recently as last week. My jailbroken iPhone 4 just doesn't cut it anymore, though.

    I'm also a soon iPhone 4 convertee. There's a lot of bad reception for the iPhone 4S on the Apple forums. It's really quite weird to see considering the rampant amount of fanboyism on those forums. I was looking forward to a major update myself, but was highly let down. I just feel that the iPhone 4S is being surpassed by Android devices, and until Apple catches up with the times (larger display and LTE namely), I'll be jumping on a Nexus Prime. I have owned Android devices before, and I was never enthused by it in the long haul, but I think this is a golden opportunity for the Android OS to really put on a software and hardware blitz.

    Here's the problem though: Apple is like the Chicago Cubs. No matter what product they put out, they have a disgustingly hypnotized fan base that will willingly hand over their money because that is just what they do. They'll buy the 4S in record amounts, and when the iPhone 5 comes out sometime next year, they'll buy that just as quickly.

    Go poke around any site with Apple users - their rabid defense of today's release is amazing. It's like they're incapable of expressing disappointment with Apple. Some of the excuses floating around are just ridiculous - I read one poster that was making the point that this is basically exactly what Apple fan's wanted (except for, I guess, a redesign, bigger screen, LTE, etc.), so there is no need for disappointment.

    I know there will be iPhone users who choose to defect, but I just don't see it happening in mass amounts. There are definitely a lot of pissed off Apple fans after today's announcement, but wait and see how many go ahead and preorder later tonight when the adrenaline dies down.
    Oh how quickly we forget the early 80's when Wrigley was only drawing 10,000 people per game. But you are right, now it is more of a "place to be", which I can understand because it is one of the nicest ball parks in baseball (this coming from a cardinal fan). Oh, and about apple, I agree. Your average user really doesn't care that much about specs or what is new. They just want an iPhone, go to the store, and get it. They don't know anything about the announcement of the new phone. The average Android user is much the same except since there are multiple hardware configurations they are more likely to compare and get the most "capable" device.

    Current iPhone user waiting for the Prime to convert. Any estimates on when it'll be released for AT&T?
    Nobody knows for sure. All I know is if it is announced at unpacked that it is going to be released on at&t before christmas I'll probably wait for it. If not then I'm picking up the galaxy s2 on the 11th.

    As a VERY frustrated Palm Pre user (the original on Sprint), I was looking forward to the new iPhone. However, the fact that Apple kept the 3.5" screen is ridiculous to me. With all that GPU power on tap, they could've capitalized by going with at least a 4" HD screen. Maybe all of the lawsuits have turned screen manufacturers off to Apple. The Prime has also been on my radar for some time now. I am really looking forward to Unpacked now that I couldn't care less about the 4S. I'm not sure if I can hold out for a Kal-El based phone!

    Guys you are forgetting a HUGE feature....CARDS!!!!!!!!!! You can make cards and give Apple even more money for the printing and mailing of those cards!!! lol @ Apple for that but stupid people will love this probably.

    Also of course the 4S will sell a bunch because of all the mindless sheep that will buy anything Apple puts out. I used to be one of them and I saw the light and now I'm loyal to who I think makes the best stuff and right now it is NOT Apple.

    Siri will be the feature that all the iPhone fans trump and almost nobody uses outside of showing it off or the first week.
    So a 2nd FaceTime?

    Asterhemorroid, I couldn't agree with you more. Moreover, one of the most important points that android in general seem to "miss" is to largely "educate/informing" the masses. I keep reading that all these new apple features were already "available" on android, who knew?

    The problem is that Android/google by and large in general leave it up to these uneducated 69th 48th party websites like http://www.iaulieura;ecyu;a8tyr8yta;....cellphone.com websites to educate the people whereas Apple have better control and understanding of their consumers. This seems to be a bigger issue and android should work on more.
