If you're just now getting around to pre-ordering an iPhone 4S device, get ready for a dose of the backorder blues. Getting an iPhone 4S on day of delivery is going to be tough for anyone that hasn't already laid claim to Apple's next generation smartphone, which is only mildly surprising given the disappointment that Apple didn't announce an iPhone 5 device. It doesn't matter, people are still lining up to buy the iPhone 4S. According to Apple, more than a million people flocked to its website and pre-ordered the device in the first 24 hours it was made available, far surpassing the previous record of 600,000 single-day pre-orders set by the original iPhone 4.

Is everybody over the fact that Apple didn't announce an iPhone 5? Did it not bother you in the first place? Great, let's move on, because today's the day you can put your pre-order in, assuming iOS is what floats your boat. Undecided on a wireless carrier? Well hey, if your pockets run deep enough, you don't have to have to make a commitment, provided you can hold out until November. As you go through the pre-order page, Apple reveals that unlocked iPhone 4S devices will ship out sometime next month. Pricing is a good chunk higher when you sidestep signing a two-year contract -- $649 for 16GB, $749 for 32GB, and $849 for 64GB -- but at least you have the option, right? There is, however, one...

Looking to switch carriers to get an iPhone 4S? Plenty of people have to be thinking about it, with Apple's newest upcoming smartphone to launch on Verizon Wireless, AT&T as well as Sprint (for the first time) in a week. But with VZW and AT&T enforcing tiered data plans for new customers, that leaves just one carrier with unlimited data for the iPhone 4 and 4S: Sprint. The carrier today made clear that they would offer an unlimited data pricing plan for both iPhone handsets on Sprint starting October 14th. New and existing customers can pre-order iPhone 4S beginning on Friday, October 7 at 12:01 AM PST. Beginning today, iPhone 4 with iOS 5 is available for just $99.99 through sprint.com/iphone....

Apple is finally sharing the formalized specs on the iPhone 4S, and they confirm much of what we've suspected. The new phone looks nearly identical to the current iPhone 4, but is reportedly "all new" inside. Many analysts have speculated that the new iPhone 4S will fix the antenna issues that plagued the original iPhone 4. The phone may share the iPhone 4's brand, but the internal specs are significantly refreshed. The new iPhone 4S is nearly identical in appearance to the iPhone 4. Graphics performance is up to 7x higher than the iPhone 4 and the phone will use the dual-core A5 CPU that powers the iPad, albeit at a (probable) lower operating frequency. Apple claims the CPU is up to twice as... Read more...

It did so by guaranteeing to Apple that it would purchase 30.5 million iPhones over the next 4 years, amount to $20 billion worth of the handsets, at current pricing. That's just part of the story emerging on Monday, the day before the next-generation iPhone launch. Not only did Sprint buy its way into the iPhone party, it bought its way into an iPhone 5 exclusive. At least, those are the stories circulating today. The Wall Street Journal reports only on how Sprint managed to get into the iPhone threesome in the U.S. With the huge investment in the iPhone, the WSJ says the Sprint has "bet the company" on the deal. Meanwhile, BGR says it's been sitting... Read more...
And, it's confirmed. The October 4 iPhone event date that we reported earlier has been confirmed by Apple, as has the rumored location of Apple's Cupertino campus. There's no question what the star of the event will be: the event is called, "Let's Talk iPhone." Although it's expected that Apple will launch other products on October 4, in particular, it's the iPhone that will be the focus for consumers, tech gurus, and analysts. Our own source has told us that Apple had originally planned to release a minimally changed iPhone 4S in mid-summer. [The name was apparently developed to reference the similarity with the iPhone 3G to 3GS update] That plan was changed, later, when Apple decided that a... Read more...
Tangible, physical evidence seems to have emerged of the iPhone 4S, which has been rumored for months.It looks A series of images posted on Twitter show Otterbox Commuter cases that have arrived at AT&T stores. The boxes on these cases clearly have iPhone 4S on them. Otterbox is a major case manufacturer, as most smartphone owners probably know, and seemingly wouldn't make a mistake such as putting iPhone 4S on a box when they meant iPhone 4. The first images showed only the back of the cases and the case boxes. Since then, the Twitter images were posted to img.ly, and clearly show the 4S text on the front side of the case box. Notably, the photos of the back of Speck and Otterbox cases appear... Read more...
