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

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."

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.

Steve Jobs arrives at the Pearly Gates. Since he was a rather important figure on earth, God decides to greet him himself instead of letting Ol' Pete do it. "Welcome, my son!" he says benevolently with an inviting gesture. Steve retorts: "I'm not your son. And what the hell are you doing in my place?"


(I don't know what to do with all the money I don't spend on Apple's overpriced electronic devotional objects celebrating and praisning the greatness of our lord and saviour Stevus Christ? Maybe do something Jobs would have never done? Like giving it to charity?)

Fk the iphone 5! the every day they come out with something new, making your new phone played out! theyre just money hungry. I don't have time for them. this is nothing but a bigger version of the 4S! I dont see a big difference. My 4S trumps the 5 because I jailbroke it. Mine already does facetime without being on wifi so I dont need that.

I will keep this 4S for as long as it works

Five rows of apps... they couldn't change that in a iphone 4 or 4s update? Oh wait..... apple wont get more money from that already overpriced phone via software update.... has to release a new product every six months that's not up to date with other competing smartphones...... not to mention, they had to sue samsung for releasing a better version of their oh so awesome iphone....
