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.

What phone OS doesn't "lock" me in? I can't switch from WP <-> BlackBerry OS <-> iOS <-> Android <-> Symbian.

I can't even switch BlackBerry or Android devices without risking apps not working anymore.

Well Android at least give a decent choice of devices. If you buy into the platform but say, the form factor isn't for you, you have a choice. If you decide on screen typing isn't for you, you have a choice. Sure, there happen app incompatibilities, but as long as you steer clear from <$150 area they are an exception.
