It's iPhone 4S day, everyone, do you know where your children are? According to the poll we've had up since the iPhone 4S was first announced, they're either crying in their room because Apple "dropped the ball" or they're doing one of the following: tapping away at their iPhone 4S or waiting in line to purchase one. Let's have a look at our poll of 19,667 SlashGear users and see what they've decided to think about the iPhone 4S given our options.

iPhone 4/3GS get ultrasn0w SIM unlock tool for iOS 5

iPhone 4/3GS get ultrasn0w SIM unlock tool for iOS 5

The ultrasn0w iPhone unlock tool has been updated to support handsets running iOS 5, allowing owners of iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 to upgrade to the recently released new version of the platform but still use their phones with other SIMs. The new ultrasn0w is still effectively a tethered system for the iPhone 4, the iPhone Dev Team confirmed today, since currently the iOS 5 jailbreak (and which is necessary if you then want to unlock your phone) requires a USB connection on each reboot.

Apple iPhone 4S A5 chip vs 1.5 GHz dual-core Galaxy S II in browser tests [Video]

Though the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor may be the highest GHz dual-core processor in the land today, from what we're seeing here, the Apple A5 chip in the iPhone 4S certainly seems to be holding its own when tossed into the out-of--box browser competition. What we've got here for you is a slightly unscientific set of tests, one that first shows the difference between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, that is single-core compared to dual-core chips from Apple, then the iPhone 4S VS the Samsung Galaxy S II carried by T-Mobile, this version having a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor, all tests conducted simply by tapping a link and seeing how fast they can load a webpage.

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.
