According to Apple, no, & this is unlikely to change.

This is Unfair !
4S is capable of doing this .. and apple by adding this feature to 4S will expand the airdrop family .. and this will result customer satisfaction and AirDrop will be some kinda Game Changing feature , Else it will not help the dropping apple customer satisfaction ....

I don't believe the iPhone 4S is capable of utilizing the air drop feature. It is my understanding (I could be wrong) that the air drop feature will be using the 5Ghz frequency range of the the 802.11n radio. The 5Ghz range allows for faster file transfers over shorter distances which is perfect for air drop. According to the specifications page of the iPhone 4S the phone cannot operate in that frequency range however the iPhone 5 can.
It looks to me that apple has chosen to use the 5Ghz frequency for air drop and they are not known to change their minds.

AirDrop not only uses Wi-Fi it uses Bluetooth as well.

Not even iPhone 4S has the support for all types of frequencies ( 802. n ) is fully supported by 4S , it has Bluetooth 4.0 the latest bluetooth version available ..
So it has the Capability to run Airdrop .. And Apple SHOULD Bring this feature to iPhone 4S ,,..

I argee. I'm not buying any story saying it is hardware based issues to run a wifi software part of an OS. If it uses not only Wifi but Bluetooth too... then they simply have this feature 'turned off' on any 4 & 4s so you and I go buy the 5 or higher.
It is rediculous & I used the feedback to tell Apple this.

One more thing the WiFi chip has to have is the ability to set up an ad hoc network. Think the 4/4s have that? Think the iPad 3 does?
I doubt it.
