    Ehh, the link is just coverage of the actual event. The phone looks amazing though.

    Man, this company's been pretty bold ever since that change in leadership.

    Pretty much.

    Spec bump, essentially. Though I love that hardware design; it's gorgeous. I just want Jelly Bean on it.

    What else could there be for a phone upgrade other than spec bump and a new design? Just curious what you were expecting exactly.

    I was nervous, having bought my first smartphone (iPhone4S) in May. But I find the bigger screen size a negative, and I'm not bothered by the data speeds on my phone, so overall there's nothing about the iPhone 5 that makes me wish I waited.
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    I was thinking about buying an iPhone 4S later this month or next, retiring my almost-4-year-old LG, but I was dismayed to find that the unlocked 16GB 4S will still cost $599 from Apple. Yikes. That's a lot of money for a phone. I was hoping it would drop substantially after the unveiling of the 5.

    Retail price might suck, but the new-contract prices are awesome - the 4 is free, and the 4S is only 99.
