Too cheap for new iPhone
October 11, 2011 - Jim Smith
I guess I'm just going to have to be out of date now that the iPhone 4S is hitting the market.
Nearly two years ago I jumped into the iPhone world with a 3S version that was OK for how I use the Smartphone for telephone calls, email and access to the Web. It also allows me to store music I like and access various applications I use for various purposes, including keeping track of everything I eat and my blood glucose levels ... both pretty useful for a diabetic trying to stay off insulin and oral medications.
Used for work, it also allows me to keep track of Facebook postings and the News and Sentinel website, our virtual newsroom and other newspaper functions.
While it has a pretty decent camera, it doesn't have video capacity nor does it have a dual camera that allows me to see who I'm talking with, as the newer models have if you're talking with someone who has the same capability.
A few months after I got my iPhone, Apple came out with the version 4, which I intended to get when I renewed my AT&T contract. But now the 4S has been launched and I'm two version behind, with rumors of a version 5 on the horizon.
Considering the base price for the 4S is $200 and I'm too frugal (or cheap if you prefer) to pay that, I guess I'll just have to stay behind the curve until the price drops..
But my not planning on getting the new version certainly hasn't hurt iPhone sales with the 4S pre-orders hitting 200,000 in the first 12 hours on the market, breaking a record set by last year's model.
