It’s finally here! Aaron unboxes the Apple iPhone 4S. Available at AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon in 16, 32, and 64 GB flavors, the iPhone 4S sports an upgraded Apple A5 dual-core CPU (clocked at around 800 MHz), 3.5-inch Retina Display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, front-facing camera for FaceTime, Siri for voice services, global roaming capabilities, and iOS 5, which is the latest build of Apple’s mobile operating system.

Will people look past the lack of a new design and purchase, or will disheartened iOS users flock to Android?
