iPhone 4S

We're all waiting patiently for the Nexus event coming in a few hours, but Apple had a little event of its own recently, and has released the latest version of their mobile offering -- the iPhone 4S.  We're all Android fans here, but we can't deny the appeal the iPhone has to many people and the impact it has on the mobile space.  Plenty of smartphone geeks love the iPhone, including our good friend Rene Ritchie who cranked out one hell of a review for the iPhone 4S.  You really should read it, even if you have no interest in Apple products, because it showcases the other side of the smartphone buying public.  Most iPhone buyers have no interest in specs, or a long list of features, or even a change log -- they just like it to work as promised right out of the carton.

Rene does an excellent job covering the improvements, like the redesigned antenna and beefed up CPU, as well as the areas where it's still a bit behind the curve -- lack of RAM and no LTE support.  And of course, he takes Siri out for some tests, as well as other new features like iCloud and AirPlay mirroring.  After reading through it, I think this is surely the best iPhone yet.  Even if I would have no interest in using one, I would recommend it to more than a few people I know.  Let's face it -- the smartphone race has basically come down to two major players, and we should care about both of them.  We can pick on Apple users tomorrow, but today let's take a minute and see what so many out there enjoy.
