Processor and memory
Apple A6 processor that's suppose to be twice as fast and has twice the graphical power than the iPhone 4S. You will be able to choose from 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of internal storage.

8-megapixel iSight camera, with f/2.4 aperture and backside illuminated sensor for taking better photos at low light conditions. The new camera is said to be 40% faster comparing to the existing 4S version. The iPhone 5 can capture videos at 1080p HD resolution, it can detect up to 10 faces and you can take pictures while shooting video. The front facing camera can capture a 720p HD video.

Pricing and availability

With a Two-year contract the iPhone 5 could be yours at a price of $199 for 16GB version, $299 for the 32GB and $399 for the 64GB version. You will be able to pre-order iPhone 5 on September 14th but won't be able to get it before the September 21st.

Other new stuff
iPhone 5 comes with a smaller 'Lightning' connector, 100MB LTE (Long Term Evoltion) data transfer and the new iO6 operating system with the brand new navigation Maps made by Apple (Google Maps is a history). iPhone 5 has now 5 rows of icons and supports wideband audio, also known as HD voice, which means, that on the carriers that support HD voice technology, call quality is going to better than people are used to at the moment. Apple also introduced the new noise cancelling earphones.

Ok, I really like the bigger screen and everything else (like maps). But I was expecting something spectacular but now I see it has become a normal phone with really tiny or no innovations.

I am a huge fan of Nokia N9 because of the swipe (using the phone without buttons) and awesome multitasking. Somehow I was expecting the edge to edge screen.

I am in love with it. Thinner, lighter and much more powerful. Can't wait to have it

LEGo just released their iPhone. Apple will probably sue them really soon

I am a little disappointed that Apple did not introduce any big improvements in iOS6.

Regarding design I think for now they have done enough so that iPhone5 will sell well, but my prediction is that in the future they will need to show more innovation.

Samsung is poking fun at Apple fans and the upcoming Iphone 5 in an advert designed to make us realise that its Galaxy S3 is the best handset around.

The real kick comes when it is revealed that someone has been saving a spot in line for some elderly people. "Grandparents like the Iphone these days" seems to be the message.
