Local iPhone repair business owner weighs in on iPhone 4s

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Even though the iPhone 4s has a lot of new bells and whistles, it has the same design as the iPhone 4. That's why some people think there might not be a huge frenzy.

Allison Mol owns an iphone repair business that she runs from her home. She compares today's announcement to a similar Apple announcement in June 2009.

"When the 3g first came out everyone was excited and everyone rushed to buy it. Then the 3gs came out, which was the same design with different and more advanced features and people weren't as anxious and excited."

But there is one feature of the new iPhone that Mol says can't be beat.

"The camera, definitely the camera. Everybody's always looking for a bigger, better camera."

Sprint now joins AT&T and Verizon as carriers of the phone, and with the holiday season quickly approaching experts predict huge sales.

The iPhone 4 is now $99 and the iPhone 3GS is now free with a two year contract.
