Color me whelmed.

In spite of anticipation of an Apple announcement today of the iPhone 5, reporters left Cupertino today with news about the iPhone 4S.

The 4S has some nice updates - a dual-core processor; dual (GSM/CDMA) antennas; an 8-megapixel camera; screen mirroring, and Siri voice control.  iOS5 will also offer some nice cloud sync services .  However, there do not appear to be any home runs in this latest announcement - no 4G speeds, no improved screen display, no major battery life upgrade.

At this point, with some of the high-end Android phones out there, the iPhone 4S is in the middle of the pack, rather than out in front.
