Apple Announces New Gadgets!

For those of you living under a rock, Apple mad a few announcements today. As a summary, the biggies are new iPhone 4S, iOS 5/iCloud release dates (12 October with the matching coming on the 24th), some huge sales figures, a minor price drop (and changes) to the iPod nano, and the iPhone will now be available on Sprint.

I have to say that overall I was a bit disappointed. I am excited by some of the features of the new iPhone 4S (Siri for sure), but was hoping for a hardware redesign. Other than that there really weren’t any big surprises, and that really is the source of my disappointment. What do you think? Will you be rushing out to get the new phone?
