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.

One must keep in mind that the actual (lack of) quality of an Apple product has no influence on the droves of gushing Apple marketing/RDF victims.

This epidemic is perfectly demonstrated in this recent Jimmy Kimmel "Iphone 5" experiment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdIWKytq_q4

"In any case, every person in the video thinks that the two-year old iPhone 4 is “faster,” “lighter” and even more durable than the iPhone 4S."

Well, they can cut out the ones that don't, but never mind that. You can do this trick/experiment with any brand or product. I was able to convince some people my MessagePad was an iPad.

This guy even tricked you thinking it has to do with Apple's RDF.
