IDK if the iPhone 4S is going to be enough of an upgrade to tempt current iPhone 4 owners.
I can tell you that I can't ditch my laggy, sleepy, sometimes-responsive-sometimes-not 3GS (with iOS 4.x) fast enough.
I think it's a strategic mistake to sell an iPhone model that isn't teh snappies to new customers, as that's been one of the differentiating factors between an iPhone and many Android phones (my work Sprint EVO as an example).
