Friday Poll: No iPhone 5; so now what?

Now that the mystery's over and you know we won't be seeing an iPhone 5 just yet, how (if at all) does that impact your phone plans for the near future? Sound off in our poll.

Apple's much-anticipated "Let's Talk iPhone" event came and went this week without the appearance of an iPhone 5. Some consumers expressed no uncertain disappointment about this development ("The S in iPhone 4S stands for Same," one commenter said, echoing other observers' expressions of letdown at not seeing a complete revamp of the smartphone).

Others, such as CNET's Dan Ackerman, took the position that the iPhone 4S essentially is an iPhone 5. Yes, it may be wearing the same outfit as the iPhone 4, but with a dual-core processor, upgraded camera, voice-activated personal assistant, and improved battery life, Dan argues, it is, in fact, almost an entirely new device.

So, here's what we want to know, readers. Now that the mystery's over, you've familiarized yourself with the iPhone 4S' features, and you know we won't be seeing an iPhone 5 just yet, how (if at all) does this impact your phone plans for the near future? Vote in our poll, and be sure to elaborate in the comments section.
