Apple has announced its latest phone; while reports were contradicting over what the next phone name would exactly be announced, it has been confirmed as the iPhone 4S. This new phone features a superior CPU, new antenna, improved camera, run on both CDMA and GSM wireless networks though it looks approximately the same as the iPhone 4.

The iPhone 4S, will start at $199, and come with a “personal assistant service” called Siri. The Siri service, which responds to voice requests, is called “the best feature yet” by Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing

The Siri service provides the time, reminders, dictionary searches, calculations via Wolfram Alpha, stock updates and more. “What we really want to do is just talk to our device and we want to talk to it any way we’d like,” said Schiller.

Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed that iCloud will be launching October 12. Apple also announced updated versions of the iPod Nano and iPod Touch, and a new app called Cards, letting users design greeting cards from their iPhone or iPod Touch that cane put an order in for a paper copy of the card costing $2.99 in the U.S. or $4.99 anywhere else.
