iPhone 4S makes its way into Apple's inventory system, 64GB version to make a cameo as well

iPhone 4S makes its way into Apple's inventory system, 64GB version to make a cameo as well
This N94 device, which was rumored to be a future iPhone before, has actually appeared in Apple's inventory system now as the iPhone 4S, feeding the speculation that this should end up being the final retail name of a souped-up iPhone 4 that is bound to occupy the mid-range market.

Not only that, but sources claim that there will be three versions, depending on the size of the internal memory - 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Now that iPhone 4-looking model that leaked in Hong Kong a while ago with 64GB, might have been a harbinger of things to come. 

What happens with the rumors that a cheaper new iPhone will only sport 8GB of memory and a heavy reliance on the cloud, we don't know, but there could be a dedicated edition for the Chinese market as well. 

The big take is that there might indeed be a device called the iPhone 4S, similar to what we had with the 3GS, but if that's going to be the only thing unveiled next week, or there will be one or two more new iPhones revealed, remains to be seen.

The Apple inventory label lists both IMEI and MEID numbers, so the iPhone 4S might indeed sport combined GSM and CDMA radios, as hinted by its FCC certification not long ago.

This is why I rarely read comments on a story here anymore. There is nothing to be gained from reading them. I wish people would discuss the content of the article instead of bashing apple or android. It will be nice if there is a 64gb version if the iPhone. We'll find out in Tuesday what will be release.

What if all these references to the iPhone 4S confirm Apple fans' concerns... what if the 4S *is* the 5th gen phone? What if all they do is drop in an A5 processor, add in a few features like voice recognition, bump up the camera specs, stretch the screen a tad, offer a 64 GB version and call it a year?

Bigger than the 3G to 3GS upgrade you mean. 3GS to 4 was a big leap. The screen alone was a selling point. Really though, based on past behavior, what if that's all they do? Upgrade the iP4 hardware to 2011 tech and otherwise leave it alone? The iP4 still sells big (3 of my family members have bought them this year), so why mess with success? They don't need to convert Android users, they just need to keep reeling in featurephone users and current Apple fans. Offer the phones on Sprint and/or T-mo and they'll still grow their market share. I'm not trying to defend (possible) lack of progress, but Apple doesn't really need to release an all-new phone. That's the market today.

Well what exactly are the gigantic leaps on android upgrades? Aren't they just a bump in specs? Also a lot more people are willing to switch from android to iOS then the other way around.

Well, to take a case in point: when the iPhone 4 was being readied, the "hot" phone on Verizon was the Droid Incredible. 1 Ghz, 3.7" HVGA screen, 3G. Around the same time the iPhone arrives, Incredible owners can choose one of two 1.5 Ghz, dual core, 4.3-4.6" 720p, 4G phones. So it's not just "a bump in specs", the screen size, screen quality and network speed are vastly increased. Physical as well as internal changes. Yes, there were many phones in between, but taken as a whole a lot has changed. As for people switching from Android to iOS, how many of them had the option a year ago? Or did they settle for Android when they really wanted the iPhone all along but didn't want to go to AT&T?

Apple ridiculously overprices their higher-memory versions of iPods and iPhones. It's interesting to see how expensive this 64GB "mid-tier" device will be. My money's on $259+ with contract.
