    How much this bad boy gonna cost? I've been anti-Apple since the beginning, but depending on price I might give it a shot.

    Most people I know have one & they all love it. I'm just not all into paying more if there is a less expensive android with similar specs/features.

    Not sure I will upgrade from my 4s. I don't see any of the new features as all that important.

    Forgive me if this is a dumb question as I am on my first iPhone, but will the 4s receive an iOS update?

    Based on history, it should be the same price as the current 4S.

    Rumors are they will start shipping 9 days later, correct?

    I think you can start getting them on the 21st, but we will know more for sure today.

    Not expecting anything too exciting from this. A bigger screen and LTE, both features that are old news for other smartphones. Siri was interesting on the 4s, but at this point it is more of an interesting toy than a must have feature. I would love to see Apple bring out something really new and revolutionary, but am really just expecting something more iterative just like the 4s.

    I thought the iPhone 4 was getting it, but nothing before that?

    Either way, as long as it's the normal $200 price, I'll be buying it.

    Agreed. Something new and revolutionary would be good, competition is great for consumers.

    What's going to be interesting is if they do have LTE in these devices, HTC and Samsung are both looking to return fire on apple for its lawsuits and import ban attempts, and both hold significant patents on LTE that Apple has not licensed. Could force apple to come to the table on its other patent disputes or could result in a ban on import of the iphone5.
