iPhone 5 Launched!!!

iPhone 5 launched!!!

At a glance:

  1. Thinner(18%), lighter (20%), less volume (12%)
  2. 4-inch Retina Display (0.9 cm longer, same width, 18% more pixels)
  3. Ultrafast Wireless (LTE & dual band wireless)
  4. A6 Chip (twice as fast, same battery life)
  5. New Earpods (enhanced speaker audio)
  6. iSight Camera (Panorama, better features, enhanced HD video recording, FaceTime HD)
  7. Lightning Connector (smaller, reversible, adapter separate)
  8. Apple Maps (GPS with voice)
  9. Siri improved more intelligent & more languages
  10. iOS 6

Not to bore you with the details (are you kidding me?),
Apple did a better Job (pun not intended)

I have not seen the rumoured:
  1. Fingerprint technology (future)
  2. NFC
  3. Passbook
  4. Waterproof (it's so easy to do this, even a lot of Japanese cellphones have this)
announced yet

Let's put it this way, if you are a die-hard Apple fan, get it.

Personally, I felt the Apple Maps with GPS turn-by-turn voice is superb.
Also Siri (perhaps inspired by iRobot), although not new , has a LOT of potential e.g. they can integrate Siri with Apple Maps.
While the LTE is great, the lousy plan in Singapore of 2 GB cap negates it. What's the point, faster but less.

GPS companies really have to step up now.
Perhaps future GPSes have to plug into your car & drive for you, lol.


  1. Job well done guys, quality information.
