iPhone 5 preorders to start on Friday, Sep 14?
It looks like iPhone fans who intend to purchase the next-gen handset (which is scheduled to be announced today, if you've somehow missed that) may have to wait until the end of the week in order to place their preorders.

Earlier, there was a rumor that iPhone 5 preorders will begin immediately after the event today, but now MacRumors has overheard that Apple might take a similar approach to what it did last year, by making preorders available two days later, which is this Friday. According to the source, Apple has scheduled a significant staffing increase in its online sales team for September 14, 6AM Eastern time. Still, it isn't known if this will be the exact time when the iPhone 5 preorder page will go live, or a bit later.

While we all want to get ours hands on the latest Apple goodness as quickly as possible, we guess we should still be content with how fast Apple makes its devices available after their announcement, in contrast to what many of its competitors do. Not only will customers be able to place a preorder for their new phone just a couple of days later, but there's also a decent chance of actually receiving the product about a week later. Who plans to preorder the iPhone 5?

And you'll say hello to sucky browsing experience with no flash, less customization and a horrible ui, and that is even if it gets released, since Samsung and HTC are looking to sue apple if they release an LTE device, all because of patent issues

Oh no!!! No flash to view all the ads! NOOOOOOOO. Seriously, most websites are adopting the HTML 5 standard, which is browsed nicely on Safari or any other browser. So Flash is a moot point. Customization? Jailbreak it if you really care that much (pretty much same as rooting an Android device). And clearly Apple can win lawsuits, they have an app for that.

Why should anyone have to do extra for something that should be already ere? Rooting is far ahead of jailbreaking, since when you root you can overclock the processor and flash ROMS to the phone, and oh sure I'm sure that they can win a patent war against Samsung, since they were the first to develop LTE phones, doing the research themselves, I'm not a Samsung fan either I'm more of a meego fan lol

The problem is I had an S3 for a month and I tried to get features on iOS like air play to appletv and getting info on the lockscreen. Rooting and roming ALMOST got me there, and when it worked it was buggy and not as mature and refined as Apples solution. And roming took away touchwiz features like s voice and accuweather widget. Maybe apk's are available, but hunting for them is an endless task. Jail breaking only ADDS features, it doesn't take them away.

i would rather force close anyday instead of going to every webpage and getting a non supoorted error because of my phones inability to view webpages in flash or receiving an error because your phone has reached maximum storage capacity..please use my over priced icloud insstead of popping in a micro sd chip..or paying 40 bucks for tom tom gps because your phone doesnt have a decent and better yet free google maps...so yes i will take a force close over the iohone 4 5 6 or 7 anyDAY

I'm almost quite with you but symbian Belle doesn't force close like iPhone or iPad does none the less it may not even get released, and no offense but I like better Nokia maps lol :)
