You've heard plenty of rumors over the past few months, I'm sure. That's all over for awhile, as Apple has just announced the iPhone 4S at their Let's Talk About iPhone press conference today.

Here's the skinny: The 4S has the same design as the iPhone 4, but inside it has new parts. The new A5 processor and dual-core gfx hardware gives the 4S the power to produce graphics 7 times faster than its predecessor.  It also sports an improved antenna, faster download speeds, a 8MP camera, and greatly improved image processing.

Pre-orders start October 7, with the actual release date falling on October 14. It will be available through AT&T, Verizon, and now Sprint. Pricing is as follows, with a two-year contract: 16GB for $199, 32Gb for $299 and 64GB for $399.

Mike Capps from Epic Games showed off this graphical power with a new game, Infinity Blade 2. "We're going to show you visuals that you've never seen on a mobile device," said Capps.

This was announced alongside many new features of Apple's newest mobile operating system, iOS5, set to drop on all iOS devices on October 12. Other new products, like the iPod Nano and iPod Touch, were also updated today with new lines.
