The new iPhone 4S *does* have some amazing new features. The camera, for example, is much improved, with an eight megapixel lens. It will shoot 1080p video. The phone’s antenna is compatible with GSM and CDMA, which means it should get really good reception PLUS work internationally. Yay! AND you can tell it to do stuff, and it will apparently do said stuff with its new Siri capability, which looks incredibly cool. It has a new notification system that promises to be less intrusive, and there’s something called iCloud or psynching. All awesome!
HOWEVER. It looks the same! I was hoping for something with rounded edges again, like the original design. I do not like the iPhone 4’s squared-off edges. Le sigh. I will be saving my $500 for that Celine bag I have my eye on (OK that costs four times as much. Still.)
