iOS 5 Review

Apple iOS 5 is, arguably, the version we've always been waiting for. New iOS builds have always introduced new features, but in iOS 5 Apple sets out its digital hub ecosystem, the culmination of a decade of product positioning and service development. It also brings very specific challenges to each of Apple's key competitors - Siri as the answer to Android's voice command system, iMessage to take on BlackBerry Messenger - in addition to addressing some of the longer standing complaints iOS users have had. Read on for the full SlashGear review. Be sure to also check out our iPhone 4S review!

iPhone price range shows carrier’s costs

iPhone price range shows carrier’s costs

Analyst Horace Dedlo of asymco has published a report that takes the newest selection of iPhones, ranging from the iPhone 3GS locked (for free) all the way up to the iPhone 4S 64GB unlocked (for $849) and suggests that this is the first time Apple has offered a real portfolio of choices for consumers. Along with this, he places the prices for unlocked variants on top of a chart for locked variants of the iPhone, showing quite clearly that not only is there a simple nearly-singular price difference between the locked and unlocked versions of each of the different iPhone models. Furthermore, there's a direct correlation between the ASP (average selling price) of the iPhone from just this past quarter and the current price portfolio Apple has for the iPhone now.

iPhone 4S pre-order stock sold out inside first day of sales

While the only reported sales numbers are coming from AT&T at "200,000 orders", it's clear if you visit any of the three carriers OR the Apple store itself that the iPhone 4S has now completely sold out of its pre-order stock.

What this means is that if you'd like to get an iPhone 4S on launch day, you're going to have to head down to one of the three carriers or your local Apple store and set up a tent - camping time, ladies and gentlemen!

AT&T iPhone 4S limits at one per person

Reports today suggest that the iPhone 4S sales in the USA, or at least at AT&T stores, will be limited to one per person, with no differentiation made between normal sales and existing customer upgrades. In what is said to be an iPhone 4S training document sent out in PDF form to workers, AT&T has made clear that regardless of the purchases of said device being New, Upgrade, or No Commitment, "One device per person" is the limit. All said and done, this is half of what we could buy for the iPhone 4 launch. Not fair, what if I want to buy one for my rabbit?!
