Apple just unveiled the long-awaited iPhone 5!!!!!!

Here's everything you need to know about the phone ... as described in 3 emails from our resident computer geek:

Email #1

Date: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 10:26 AM
Subject: New iPhone 5 - images and details

iPhone 5
Larger Screen - another row of apps! - 4-inch screen, 5 rows of apps instead of 4, 326ppi Retina display (1136x640 resolution) - 44% better color saturation
Ultrafast wireless (802.11n at up to 150Mbps) and LTE (4G speed with a max of 100Mbps)
Partially metal back - glass an aluminum
Thinnest and lightest - 18% thinner (7.6mm), 20% lighter (112 grams)
iOS6
"It's the most beautiful product we have ever made, bar none."
Available on Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon, all with 4G LTE
A6 chip runs it - fastest yet - 2x faster than iPhone 4S's A5 chip, also more energy-efficient

Battery life improved – 8 hours of talk or browsing time on 3G or LTE, 10 hours on WiFi
Same general camera specs as 4S but 40% faster, with better low-light performance for those club nights, lens cover is sapphire lens crystal to be more durable and clear, ability to take 28-megapixel panorama pictures. Takes better videos too, of course.  Front-facing camera improved, can do FaceTime over regular network and not just Wi-Fi now.
Improved microphones and noise cancelation for clearer calls
NEW CONNECTOR CALLED "LIGHTNING" (a play on Thunderbolt, their desktop connection system) – meaning your current accessories may not work with it. But it's 80% smaller.  Yay? However, there is an adaptor for that (which will probably cost you).
iOS6: New Maps application (no longer Google Maps)

…still no price or release date.

Wow i thought the 4S sucked. This really sucks. I guess Apple now has enough prior art to Patent sucking.

The truth for me is the iPhone4 was the best thing I bought in the last 10 years.
I love it to bits!
I will check this one out and maybe I'll buy it.

SAME SH*T, DIFFERENT CAST. YAAAWWWWN!!!! WHO NEEDS IT UNLESS YOU NEED IT. MOST OF THE "UPGRADED" FEATURES ARE USELESS TO THE AVERAGE CONSUMER WHO DON'T GIVE A RATS ASS. BESIDES, APPLE IS PLANNING TO MAKE TONS OF PAPER ON THE ADAPTER AND NEW CONNECTOR. THAT'S WHERE MOST OF THE PROFIT IS COMING FROM. IMMA SURE THE CONNECTOR IS LIKE AN EXTRA $40-$50 SMACKERS AND THE CONNECTOR IS $25-$30. NOW MULTIPLY THAT BY 100 MIL IPHONES SOLD AND YOU GET THE PICTURE. RETURN TO SENDER. MEHHH! #TRUTH!!

Nobody should be buying this crap - the workers who assemble this crap are committing suicide because Apple makes them work around the clock and pays them like 8 cents a day.
Take a stand for once in your life and stop supporting this bullsh!t. No one *needs* one of these.

It's relevant because this is the phone that people will be hacking to get the nude pictures that celebrities are stupid enough to have on their cell phone.
