No iPhone 5 just the new iPhone 4S

Were we expecting too much from Apple at the event of the year last night? Maybe we were as we are all guilty of predicting the launch and yet all we got was the iPhone 4S, which of course, may have the appearance of the current iPhone 4, but inside Apple have added some serious upgrades, so effectively this is a new device inside an old casing.

The device will offer three versions, the 16 GB, 32 GB and the 64 GB models in the US prices will be starting at $199. However, in the UK the prices are yet to be announced, however the launch date will be the 14th October and so far Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile have confirmed that they will be carrying the device.

According to the Apple Inc Press Release regarding the iPhone 4S;

CUPERTINO, California-October 4, 2011-Apple® today announced iPhone® 4S, the most amazing iPhone yet, packed with incredible new features including Apple’s dual-core A5 chip for blazing fast performance and stunning graphics; an all new camera with advanced optics; full 1080p HD resolution video recording; and Siri™, an intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking.
