iPhone 4S sticking around, will be free on contract

The iPhone 4S will remain in the iPhone lineup, despite the fact that the iPhone 5 is being discontinued. The 4S will be available as an 8GB model for free on contract.

An interesting move on Apple's part, as with the 4S they'll be keeping a device with the old 30-pin dock connector in the main iPhone lineup. What's your take on it?
