Apple "Apple today announced it has sold over five million of its new iPhone 5, just three days after its launch on September 21, and more than 100 million iOS devices have been updated with iOS 6, the world's most advanced mobile operating system." The last claim is debatable, but the figures are not - very impressive. Of course, do note that the iPhone 5 was available in more countries than the 4S in its first weekend, and if you take that into account, the iPhone 5 didn't do any better than the 4S at all (which doesn't negate the incredible sales - it just highlights the smartphone market's growth might be slowing). It's also lower than what analysts expected, but they're just monkeys throwing darts at figures anyway.

Apple lost me

i have an iphone 3g, an htc desire hd and a blackberry bold 9700. I prefer the blackberry for chatting and phone and use that every day. I use the htc desire hd for browsing in bed and some of it's useful utilities and the iphone 3g for the odd game. After having used an iphone 3g and played my girlfriends iphone 4 and ipad 2 - there is no way i'd want to buy an iphone 5. Why so few files in a folder? Why do i have to do every file operation 1 file at a time? Why does the facebook and ebay apps suck? Why cant I use google maps on iphone 5? Apple lost me.
