Here's how Apple announced the iPhone throughout the years
Believe it or not, more than five years ago, Steve Jobs went on stage to announce the first iPhone. It was a unique moment. Jobs spoke about three devices: a "widescreen iPod with touch controls"; a "revolutionary mobile phone"; and a "breakthrough Internet communicator," all of which turned out to be combined in a single unit, the iPhone.

The iPhone has evolved a lot over the years. The iPhone 3G got 3G speeds and GPS.

The iPhone 3GS added a huge boost in speed, so much that it’s still relevant and you can play most games on the App Store on it. It also got multitasking which many craved for.

The iPhone 4 received a gorgeous redesign and a camera that put it on top of Flickr’s list of most popular cameras.

The iPhone 4S seemed like a more incremental update, adding in an even better, this time 8-megapixel camera and Siri, Apple’s take on intelligent voice assistance.

All of those were announced at events packed with people and tons of excitement, and what better time to look back at all the iPhone keynotes than now, hours before the iPhone 5 arrives?

When he shows the new iphone he will pull it out his butt and it will most likely be on vibrate.

I personally don't care much about the phone, presentation, or whatever junk they'll try to foist upon potential buyers.
I am really really hoping a horde of lawyers from Samsung and HTC (and anyone else, really, the more the merrier) storm the building and stage with reams of cease and desist orders and lawsuits for patent infringement and false advertisement and anything else that can be brought against them.
That would be delightful.

That'd be one way to bring attention to apple's blatant abuses. It'd probably make the "news of the year" clips easily

Also good: the audience starts a chant or call out the flaws or failures of the new device.
Or they throw their shoes at the presenter.

I can pleasantly imagine a chorus of "apple $ucks" interrupting the presentations.

Any excuse to bring back the iDead. Btw, I would like to see an article on the necessary steps Apple must take to take down (albeit temporarily) the Apple Store at the lazt minute before an announcement especially when they've had more than a year to plan for the announcement???

While I am not particularly excited for the iPhone 5, I do love the way these guys present their devices. Their presentations do warrant a watch.

If I were Apple, I would have prepared a Keynote with the presenter being a digital hologram of Steve Jobs presenting the iPhone 5...
