iPhone 5 pre-orders are now live
We have to give Apple credit for making sure its newly-announced gadgets reach the market in the shortest time possible. And their latest smartphone is no exception to that – just as promised, the iPhone 5 is now available for pre-order from the Apple Store online. Pricing is set at $199 for the 16GB model, with the 32GB and 64GB variants priced at $299 and $399 respectively. Of course, your signature under a 2-year contract is required in order to get the iPhone 5 with a carrier subsidy. Note that only two smartphones are allowed per customer. It is estimated that your order will ship in about 2 weeks if pre-ordered right now.

Wondering whether you are eligible for an upgrade? Turns out that's quite easy to check online. All you need to do is to visit Apple's web page (link below) and enter your details. Apple also provides a tool for comparing AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint iPhone 5 plans, so in case you want to check whether you are getting the most bang for your buck, check it out at the link below.

According to my own estimations...people who will buy the iP5 will be iFans only...!! No one from the Android, Symbian and BBM community will think of it as beautiful!! Come to think of it, even iFans would rather hang on to their iP4 series!

People don't seem to understand! It's not that the iPhone 5 is a bad phone, its that Apple is selling you the same crap every year!(same thing with iPad2 and The New iPad). Jesus! People drooling over it make me laugh so nice!

I won't say every year...but yes, the look of the 5 is like a "Cliché".... beefier hardware isn't everything!!

Hmm...maybe iSheeps cant tell the different between iPhone 4S/iPhone5 and make them hestitating to pre-order. Apple really need to label on all iPhones and tell what model its. Makes life much easier for all iSheeps flocks to know what they are buying. :)

And once again apple will break all the sales record by selling something which costed them 168$ to make at 700$. I don't understand why people line up to buy such a overpriced gadget, even after they know that there are better products in Market which costs just half of it. Once Warren Buffet said " if u purchase the things which you don't require, then one day you will have to start selling the things which you really require".......................... ifans will understand the meaning of this phrase soon..........
