Here's the world's first iPhone 5 owner

0. phoneArena 21 Sep 2012, 02:18 posted on

Queuing for the newest iPhone has become more of a marketing stunt than anything else, given that the first in line in most places are people who are there for promotional consideration, rather than die-hard Apple fans, and it is indeed the case with the first iPhone 5, received by Aussie Todd Foot...

I wouldn't say first to own one. There are apple employees (Crook, Ive) who probably have one.

Don't get how so many people still like or are Apple fanboys - the amount that that company has ripped them off is astronomical - and then the 'fanboys' brag about them having the highest share prices? - Yeah, cause they've ripped you off for 5 years, idiot.

yeah..daniel p. or whoever you are, dont you have better stuff to write about? or the editors wanted you to write something stupid & see how it goes before you are given more important stuff to write?
or is it your brother, the loser who wanted to get the 1st iphone? what is it worth? does he get something better than the others? no..only the same old crap.
do you write anywhere, about the 1st person who got a sgs3 or a one x?
so why the need for this?

I actually used iMaps last night...

It took awhile to search for directions to a post office in another city (FAIL)

BUT.... on my way back:

I asked Siri to "take me home"

She found my address in my phone contacts then launched the maps app, searched the possible routes, chose the quickest one, then started the navigation... ALL automatically.

I was very impressed... Siri is totally integrated in iOS... You can even ask her to look for other things while on your route and its seamless to resume your route...

You're completely dependent on your phone to find your way home?

This is getting out of hand... You're the first one to get a new iDevice, and you're suddenly a celebrity and have masses of people cheering you on.

Ok my samsung epic 2 which mind u is over a year old blows this new iphone out of the water as far as specs go 4.5 inch screen vers 4 inch screen and 1.2 dual core instead of 1 dual core the only thing it has is better pixel density but u really cant tell that much so is it really worth that much money to get something new that isnt top of the line its just new when u can get something over a year old for free and have it run better then the new?
