Apple Announces iPhone 4S

Apple announces iPhone 4S at last night’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” event. The form factor is exactly the same as iPhone 4, the only minor difference is the antenna placement is different from the GSM models of iPhone 4. In terms of weight, iPhone 4S is 3 grams heavier than iPhone 4 while maintaining the same dimensions of 115.2mm x 58.6mm x 9.3mm.

For the first time in iPhone history, iPhone 4S will be available in 64GB. Now iPhone 4S has 3 variants of storage capacity, 16GB (US$199), 32GB (US$299) and 64GB (US$399). Both black and white models for each variant will be available during launch.

Apple Releases OS X Lion, Refreshes MacBook Air, Mac Mini, Introduces Thunderbolt Display

OS X Lion
Mac OS X Lion is finally released, it cost US$29.99 in the Mac App Store. I was downloading this at 11MB/s (megabytes not megabits) yesterday night! If you have a slower Internet connection, Lion will be made available on a USB thumb drive through the Apple Store (Singapore) for S$88. Mac OS X Lion is the eighth major release of Mac OS. It has more than 250 new features such as new Multi-Touch gestures, system-wide support for full screen apps, Mission Control, Mac App Store, Launchpad and a new re-designed Mail app.

It seems that Xcode 4.1 (App Store link) is free (usual US$4.99) for OS X Lion only and FaceTime is included in OS X Lion (App Store Link) (usual US$0.99).

Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter

The Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter is for 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro. Got it in Hong Kong for only HK$588 (~S$93). It is selling for S$128 in Singapore!

I am also using a 15″ MacBook Pro for work and I have a power adapter at work, it has been wired so nicely that it makes removing it very difficult and hence I decided to get a spare power adapter that allows me to bring it along when I am on call.

Got My Apple 32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G!

Got my iPad 2 32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G thanks to my friend/neighbour who went to queue up at 6am at Infinite at VivoCity and on the way got it for me! If you are reading this, Thanks Pei Jun!

Similar to iPad 1 launch, 1 person is entitled to buy 2 iPad 2 only. The stocks are extremely limited especially white! My friend was 5th in the queue and the white 32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G was already sold out. So I am guessing the previous 4 person got like 2x white each.
