The iPhone 4S - to launch in October 14 pre-orders will start Oct. 7

Apple, during the "Let's Talk iPhone" event held at the company's Cupertino base, announced the next iteration of the iPhone. For those who are expecting something really new or something that is completely different from the iPhone 4, you might get disappointed, because the photo you see above is the iPhone 4S. Still, the smartphone is an upgrade, major for those who loves looking inside rather than the outside of a phone. It packs a dual-core processor with Apple's new A5 chipset and a mind boggling 8MP camera that really had a chunk of time during the event. Also, iOS 5 and it's features were showcased with the addition of Siri Assistant (the personal assistant). Apple, with Tim Cook on stage, also featured the new pricing of the iPod Nano and the iPod Touch. I'll be talking about them later on.
