Three things
English

1) Congratulations on your coverage. It outpaced the Guardian's, and engadget was down most of the time as far as I could see. Amazon rocks, doesn't it?

2) iPhone 4Szzzzzzzz

3) $99 for a 4? Firstly, sell HTC and Nokia. Secondly, wish I'd sold my 4 last week in anticipation...

RE: Three things

Bit disappointed, but you have to laugh at the chineese companies stuck with 10s of thousands of iPhone 5 cases! Saw one company online giving them away free with a few bucks postage.

RE: Three things

To be fair, disappointment stems from all the rumours people were fed. Apple has released a better version of the iPhone with really cool features.

1) thanks - Messrs Clough and Cox played a blinder Smile

2) But the extra details re IOS5 look very promising

3) cheap iPhone plus stalk-your-kids software will see lot of parents pick it for their kids, no? And with instant messaging the kids might even want it...

We were right to trail the iPod news though... Farewell Classic!

Rarely. Only read what's pertinent to my needs, and I've worked over 11 hours today. The last thing I want at this time of night is gizmos...

Oh I agree completely, little embaressed I helped spread those rumours on threads here.  Supprised at how badly wall street journal dropped the ball, they usually get fed good material.  Yet less than an an hour after the anouncement they bring the headline '

Apple Underwhelms With iPhone 4S'.  Its arguable they were the source of the mainstream iPhone 5 rumours!  That was the source of my 'dissapointed' comment.

It looks like assistant wont work on the iPhone 4 however.  If its as good as it looks I may need to upgrade after all...

RE: Three things

Your article says 'Due out December 1st', I thought it was October 14th?  I'm taking this as some form of omen, as 1st December is my birthday!

Odd, then, that you chose to post in the Apple iPhone section of our Smartphones and Tablets forum Smile

They can't do an entire website about old Arcam CD players.

RE: Three things

No, but the 4 will be with Mrs JD (bought, not contract) on day of release.  The 3G goes to Little Ms JD.  I might even get her a 3GS at 49 quid so that we are fully Airplay compliant...
