Maybe even sadder is that many here don't value software. To deliver this update it took the engineering resources of a large company and those people spent a lot of time getting to iOS 5.

But this dual core cpu is worthless.
That is BS. All one has to do is look at the performance differences between iPhone 4 and iPad 2. The new processor should go a long way to making use of the 4S more fluid and responsive. That without even bringing games into the equation.
For more than a year of ip4 run we saw only few games/apps, which could show us "magic" of a4 cpu. a5 maybe good for infinity blade 2, but this is a) the only game for next six-seven moths which will use full potential of dualcore b) very stupid and boring game. I've bought it once to see graphics, but now I don't need some minor shadow/light improvements.
There is more to the world than iPhone games. Even then you are simply wrong.
There is no possibility to use these speed on iphone. Such speed requires bigger screen and better inputs (aka mouse or keyboard).
Non-sense! Even things like complex PDFs will be rendered faster and be easier to manipulate.
Antenna? I really dont want to disappoint anyone, but 90% of speed depends on your carrier, network load and other factors. You could attach satellite dish to iphone, but you will still be in limits of average (NOT THEORETICAL) speed.
I think you are confused, the speed increase is due to supporting new transfer protocols.
The only real improvement - is camera, but still smartphone is not a camera even with 10Mp
I won't jump to conclusions here but modern cell phones out perform many of the old film cameras from the past. Considering the quality of the original iPhone 4's camera I suspect this one will indeed be even better. Compared to the days of the disc camera and cameras based on 110 film iPhone is a high performance camera.
Voice-control-thing is funny, but in real life nothing more than "Oh, look what my iphone can do"
That is why this presentation is sad
It is only sad because you close your eyes and refuse to value any of the new features in iOS 5. You also don't want to recognize that the hardware is all new. Tear downs of this phone should be very interesting.
