Good ideas.

I think the first thing people will want to know (for the next few hours) is that until announcements are made by Apple, nothing is official.

And that those announcements start today at 10 a.m. PST / 1:00 p.m. EST.

Sonal Oct 4th, 2011 01:40 PM

Will any of these things work on the Wind Mobile (i.e., T-Mobile) network?

As of yet, new iPhone has not been announced and there are no details yet (However likely or unlikely). This thread is just for official facts and details.

This thread is just new iPhone related. ;)

Joker Eh Oct 4th, 2011 02:04 PM

iPhone 4S is both GSM and CDMA

Lawrence Oct 4th, 2011 02:05 PM

Apple says the 4S will be 7 times faster than the iPhone 4
(Just announced on the Engadget Live Blog)

Also the Apple 4S will be the only phone that can play Infinity Blade 2 on,
Infinity Blade 2 will debut in December.

This is what dual-core CPU + dual core graphics gets you.
