New Apple Devices
Posted 10/4/11
Which ones are you probably gonna going to pick up this year?

I was thinking about getting a high end Droid phone, but I decided to wait for what Apple would show,

I'm liking the iPhone 4S at this point, and probably will snatch it up this year.

What really pissed me off is that,

Since the iPod Touch eats iPhone sales greatly, Apple decided to throw a low ball and nerf the iPod Touch,

It doesn't have any better camera, it doesn't have a dual core processor, it doesn't have the rumored 3G data plan, All they did was make it..... white... WTF?

Well, I love the iPod Touch, even more than the iPhone, but since Apple caught on to my(And millions of others actions), to simply purchase a contract free iPod Touch, then get a different phone so you can have iOS and a non-smartphone but still get all the awesome apps and whatnot (If you get Wifi).

Well, since the IPod Touch got nerfed, I'll be getting an iPhone,

The entire iPod Line got an update,

So which new devices are you guys getting?

Why would Apple waste precious resources putting all that into the iPod Touch? Do you not understand the basic business model? They're trying to make money. That wasn't Apple low-balling consumers, that was consumers being naive enough to believe that Apple would release a cheap, reasonably powerful 3G device.

iOS 5 was a good announcement.

The new iPhone is all about the software, and that software is pretty impressive. I would probably have gotten the iPhone 4S if it had better hardware. A full-HD camera and a dual-core processor is a good start, but that stuff is already outdated. Knowing Apple, they'll probably underclock the processor to 800Mhz. I think a faster dual-core processor with a quad-core GPU is the very least they can do. Wait, no, they can still update the RAM from 512mb to 1gb, use a bigger screen, increase resolution, etc. etc. It was definitely a good business move to call this the iPhone 4S, rather than 5. The hardware is just not good enough to compete with phones in the Android market. I mean, it'll hurt them a bit now, but it'll definitely help with iPhone 5 sales, depending on what they bring to the table of course. The one feature that I really like is the ability to switch between CMDA and GSM networks; in that sense it literally is a world phone.

I've had a couple of ipods over the years, and never been satisfied with any of them.
Bought a HTC a year ago, and loved it from the moment I opened the box.
I prefer solid hardware to fancy ui.

Waste?

The reason why the iPod Touch got nerfed is because Apple(Or Tim Cook) has a distaste for the iPod Touch because it eats iPhone sales,

Everyone who want's an iPhone but not enough cash, would buy a Touch and a regular phone and would be set.

Ever since the 2nd Generation of iOS devices, the iPod Touch has been out muscling the iPhone for awhile,

The iPod Touch 4th Generation destroyed the iPhone 4 at sales, and the catch is... iPod Touches always come afterwards and still schools the iPhone,

A Dual Core iPod Touch with 1GB of ram would be popular among the tech savvy and would be amazing for the Jailbreak scene(Which Apple doesn't really care about).

This iPhone 4 is major letdown, I like Apple products a bit,

but this iPhone 4S is more like iPhone 4 Suckers,

Tim Cook Nerfed the touch, Somewhat nerfed the iPhone(No more ram?)

And threw it out.


I'm starting to see the difference without Steve Jobs,

Improving the Touch would be better idea since even plenty of Android users snatch up iPod Touches so they can both OSes,

I sure hope call it iPod Touch 4 Shit(4S, Get it?).

I like apples. They aren't grown here in the tundra much, but they are crunchy like snow under your boots.

iPhones are Fords at Mercedes prices, I'm going to stick with my Ferrari which doesn't need two antenna to make a phone call :)

Shop around, you can buy a phone with much better hardware for less, don't be fooled by the 8MP camera "upgrade", it's snake oil, there are a myriad of factors to account for when it comes to picture quality above and beyond the MP rate. Dual Core CPU is a start, other phones have had that for quite a while so it was about time Apple played catch up. Basically, the iPhone range has never been good at the primary function of a mobile, making calls, the iPods were always 2nd rate music players too, there has always (and always will be) been better options out there.

Yes, I own an iPhone, no idea where I put it though, as soon as I got my N900 it got filed under R for Rubbish.

I doubt that I'll be getting any new high-end apple products. I do however own an Ipod nano with 8 gb of storage space. To be honest the ipad, iphone and ipod touch are all essentially the same thing.
