There were more improvements to RIM in various 2-3 year cycles than apple has had in 5. Color screens (started monochromatic, if you may recall), improved keyboards, optical trackpads instead of track balls, touch screens, different form factors, introductory-level sets (i.e. Pearl & Curve), significant OS updates, etc etc

an iphone 4s 16gb unlocked in australia is $800, iphone 4 8/16 gb (can't remember which one it is) unlocked is $645 and a 3gs is $429 on a PREPAID. so an iphone 5 with it's "revolutionary" screen, icons, camera, etc. will sell for about $1000 knowing apple

actually steve wazniak said we pay so much in taxes here in aus, it's ridiculous. eg: a ford mustang is about 40-50 thousand in the us (give or take) here in aus. $150, 000+

It's amazing how much of you hate apple. Why change the phone when it outsells everything in the world? You people need to get over it, that your current android is a joke. APPLE CONQUERS ALL

we dont mind it selling good its not what anyone meant here i think its what people thought that after making so much cash they might just do some RnD to bring something WoW factor to users but it is same level any other company out there is giving every new tech they can come up with look at nokia Pureview camera its the first step in revolution of cameras in phones. dont take me for a apple hater i love apples its just this company is way to stuborne and lazy

I'm sure it will be a good phone, but does it bring anything to the table that is better than the current top shelf Android phones? No, imo. For those who have Apple and want to stick with it, this will do fine. However, I just don't see anything here that will drive any Android users to drop it and pick up the new iPhone.

This should definitely go down as disappointing, because an announcement of this size should have something that is a "game changer", which this announcement is totally lacking.

Stop the patent trolling Apple and actually make a truly advanced device. Then talk about how awesome your iPhone is.

Disappointed, but wasn't expecting nothing better. So I am still happy with my GS3 purchase.

well if that device is wht it looks then nokia might be feeling 2013 is their lucky year Android market is at almost peak those who dont want to buy android are left only so apple ask for to much cash for this kind of toys Wp8 devices are the next better choice for rest of users i think WP8 market may go up by 5-15% in 3 or 4 quaters

Came out, looked down on 3 and said, 'This is the new me, i'm 5 times taller than you!' :P

Im watching the live blog. Jon Ive is on talking about how incredibly difficult it was to increase the screen size while keeping it one hand usable.
Seriously dude.. you went 0.5 inches straight up.. did it take you a whole year to figure that out??
or did you just look at the SGS1 and go.. oh yea.. we can do it just like that!! lol.
