The event is on at full speed in San Francisco today. Apple expects to sell 5.5 million units of new iPhone 5 in the first three days.
iPhone 5 is Announced as the “Biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone”.
It is finally here – Apple’s next-generation new iPhone – the much anticipated Phone 5. The device will be released to the stores to be available for sale at 8:00 AM on September 21, as confirmed by Apple. CNN’s Dan Simonpredicts the new iPhone “to be the biggest selling Smartphone of all time, shattering previous records set by Apple.”
Pre-order begins on September 14 and will start from $199.
I looks very similar to the iPhone 4S, with a metal backside and a dual-tone body, but with a smaller bezel that allows for a lightly thinner and larger tap screen. The display is measured 4 inches, giving an extra 0.5 inch diagonal, and is slightly longer then it’s predecessors. This format allows for a more video-friendly aspect ratio of 16×9. This change also makes room for kicking up some pixelage 960 x 640 is retired, giving room for 1136 x 640.
Sweet 1GB of RAM and 4G LTE compatibility make the deal even better, making the phone run better and faster on cellular networks . On the downside, we’ll need to invest in bunch of new accessories – specifically for charging, since a smaller 19-pin port has replaced the old bulky 30-pin.
