An avid fan of Apple products, I am holding off on upgrading my 4S.
While many of the features seem nice, especially the faster network downloads, there are only minor feature upgrades for the most part.
I am about halfway through the Steve Jobs biography written by Walter Isaacson. [By the way, it’s an excellent read.] I wonder whether Jobs would have continued to allow the introduction of each with so few real advances, Where is the innovation?
Nevertheless, Apple announced that they sold 2 million phones on the first day! Using an average selling price of $600 each, that’s $1.2 billion USD! Perhaps not a bad business decision. No wonder the computer manufacturers are hurting. Each smartphone drains the need for traditional laptops and their siblings.
I understand your reluctance to upgrade to the new iPhone. But my Blackberry just doesn’t perform or have the apps of the iPhone, so I’ll wait a while then relish my new toy, gadget, oh yes, and phone.
And Ray, keep up the good work.
