Apple didn’t get to the number one portable gaming device by competing with portable gaming devices, they got there by having a non-phone that was always keeping abreast of what they were doing in the far more competitive smart phone market, and so wound up way ahead of existing devices from Sony and Nintendo. But things move fast, and the touch next to the 4S is no better of a gaming device than a 1G touch next to the 4G. The problem is that the 4G touch won’t be a model nearly 4 years out from the 4S, nope, it’s a concurrently produced and marketed model, and that’s just plain sad.

Had Apple done *anything* of note to make the iPod touch into a better gaming device - A5 processor, more RAM, physically larger screen - I’d have had a new one ordered about 30 seconds after the store site went back up.

While the 4S doesn’t make or break my decision, the carriers do. I was hoping that Verizon or ATT would announce an iPhone/iPad shared data plan. Without such a plan, I’m likely to just keep my 3GS with an unlimited data plan for a little while longer.

@4 - You do realize that you can upgrade your iPhone AND still keep your unlimited data plan (at least on AT&T)? So long as you do not make changes to the phone plan you have (e.g. opting in to tethering/hotspot). So there is no real reason to hold on to an older model unles the newer models themselves do not fit your needs. Which I would imagine is not the case with the 3GS and the 4S.

Well, I will still get the new phone as my 3G has seen better days. A bit disappointed though R.L. on the radio suggested that the phone carriers lack of infrastructure and non-4G cabability might have something to do with Apple holding off on a true Iphone 5. I will most likely get a 5 whenever that comes out.
Cheers…
