Hey Gallitoking;
Since you are a die hard Apple fanboy, i got a question for you.
Are you at all dissapointed that its the same thing except extended to fit a bigger screen or do you think it is the next big thing for all iPhone users and fanboys.
Just a question bro.

Don't blame you. This seems to be a handset worth upgrading to if you have cash invested in the apple ecosystem.

Kudos to apple. A thin, light, non glass, LTE handset; fixes most of what blows about the 4s. Both colors at once and clear release dates too.

Kinda funny that all the pics have the demenstrator using both hands though. Pretty silly to keep trying to convince us it is a one handed device while using both hands. Shrug.

Still...looks like a winner.

Announcing iphone in 2007 , SJ said that the iphone is 5 years ahead of competition. And after 5 years , iphone is still the same.

they're finally on track but this should've been done last year and this year should've brought a revamp of iOS to hit the ceiling with JB and WP8.

Apple has done what others are unable to. They managed to sell the same thing thing for 5 years. ' Only APPLE can do that. '

Revolutionary!
