Apple iPhone 5 announcement: meta-liveblog
posted by Ray S. / Sep 12, 2012, 11:01 AM
In contrast to previous years, we've seen many leaked pictures and heard many rumors, some of which quite silly, others somewhat trustworthy, but the moment when all will become clear has finally come. Apple is no longer the one and only go-to company if you need a great smartphone. There are alternatives now with the likes of Samsung, HTC, Nokia and LG, who have come up with some lovely Android and Windows Phone offerings this year. However, one thing is certain: today, there will be no Samsung, no HTC, no Nokia, no LG. Today is iPhone day.
Welcome to our meta-liveblog, guys and gals! Together, we'll be following Apple's keynote, witnessing the announcement of the new iPhone as it unfolds. Apple's keynote will begin in about an hour, so if there's something you have to do - do it now, and be sure to come back quickly, as this will be an event you don't want to miss. Alternatively, if you don't have anything else to do, why don't you refresh your memories with our iPhone 5 rumor round-up!
The event will start at: 1PM ET | 12PM CT | 10AM PT | 6PM GMT | 7PM Central European Time.
Unfortunately, we won't be able to attend the show live, so that's why we'll be doing a meta-liveblog. Info and pictures are courtesy of TheVerge and Engadget.

So is phonearena a place for everybody to let their inner 12 year old selfs out, and bash on anything other than what they have? So if you drive a chevy and the guy next to you drives a ford are you gonna start talking trash about how their truck is crap? No, why is a phone any different? Cool good for you if you love the inovative android's that take chances and launch stuff prematurely and like to use their consumers as beta testers. I have a droid charge btw. And good for you if you want a iphone that is very cautious and only releases a product after it has been designed, tested, took back down worked on tested again, and again, till perfection before release. And when you have it, it runs flawlessly as expected after having to wait a year or so for it. ex LTE. (- Dont start android fan boys the antenna issue on the 4, that was a stupid mistake on their part. But we can compile a list for days on issues your Godly Android phones have had.)

I am a fan of watching releases too, but I have never bought a iPhone and never will, but what I will buy is the new Nokia 920 or LG Optimus G.
