New Apple iPhone fails to wow fans

Dull product launch may not be what many had been expecting from the technology company's new management.



    Tim Cook, Apple's new CEO, who took over from his iconic predecessor Steve Jobs, has announced its long-awaited fifth iPhone release.

    The new unit, named iPhone 4S, is basically the same design as previous iPhones but with a faster processing system.

    But there was disappointment in the world of technology with the latest iPhone model, the first major new product from Apple in months.

    A dull product launch may not be what many had been expecting from the new management, which may now have to up its game a little if it's to maintain the soaring success of the Steve Jobs days.
