Apple As expected, Apple announced its new iPhone tonight, dubbed the iPhone 5. The rumours and leaks nailed it, with the most prominent feature being the move from 3.5" to 4" (1136x640). Due to the way iOS handles resolutions, applications need to be adapted for this new display, and if they are not, they will be letterboxed (black bars). It has a faster processor, better camera, LTE, and several other improvements, while the. As always, Apple does it right: shipping 21 September in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore - the rest of the world will follow later.

You're getting one? Good for you. I'm probably getting a Samsung Note 2, as soon as I can convince myself that I neeeeed it and can afford it... which will not happen soon.
Either way, I don't think we define ourselves in terms of the high-tech toys that we buy, unlike e.g. buying a car. I hope it stays that way - i.e. I hope most early adopters stay meritocratic instead of falling for branding... or punishing apple for putting its shareholders first. It's no different in that than any other corporation.
