How is Apple following up the iPhone 4? With a faster, more powerful iPhone 4S, of course. 

The new model, debuted at a news conference in Cupertino Tuesday, has an improved camera with a higher-resolution sensor and a faster processor.  New mobile software allows the phone to sync wirelessly with computers and respond to spoken commands and questions. 

It is also a "worldphone" that allows Verizon Wireless customers to use it overseas, just as AT&T customers already could.  Another big change is that Sprint will carry the new iPhone in addition to Verizon and AT&T. 

The iPhone 4S will come in black and white.  It will cost $199 for 16 gigabytes, $299 for 32 gigabytes and $399 for 64 gigabytes, all with a two-year service contract.  The now-dated iPhone 4 will cost $99 for eight gigabytes and the 3GS is free, both with two-year contracts.

In spite of the iPhone's overwhelming popularity, the smartphone only accounts for five percent of the worldwide handset market.
