IPhone 4S Gets More Power, a Better Camera and Siri - NYTimes.com

Something to consider: if Apple had introduced the same feature set – 2x app speed, 7x graphics, significantly improved camera/video, improved antenna and wireless speed, voice-based command/assistant, etc. – in a different form factor, and called it iPhone 5, would people who expressed disappointment with the iPhone 4S announcement have been elated?

It’s a measure of how Apple has habituated its legions of fans to regular, eye-catching design changes that the news about the latest version of the iPhone qualified as a disappointment for some. Grumbling about the announcement of the new phone, the iPhone 4S, spread on Twitter throughout the day and the company’s shares fell as much as 5 percent, though they regained most of those losses by the end of trading.
