Well, it is finally here!

The long awaited iPhone 5!  And my first impression is – wait for it please (drum roll) … – oh well.

It looks like a nice phone and a nice upgrade, but we’ve come to expect so much from Apple.  We want to see something totally new, that we never expected.  The biggest change between the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 is the iPhone 5 is 9 mm (0.37 inches) taller, 1.7 mm (0.07 inches)  thinner, and 28 grams (0.95 ounces) lighter. The overall effect is to increase the screen size to 4 inches from 3.5 so you have more screen space, while keeping the feel of holding it in one hand the same.

Most of the other changes are just improvements on the existing features. Here are a few:

  • Improved Camera
  • Faster, more powerful processor
  • Faster Wifi
  • 4G LTE support
  • Apples own “Maps” app*
  • Higher quality ear buds
  • Support for Facetime over the cellular network*
  • Improved, more powerful Siri*
  • Smaller, more versatile dock connector

* Some features, are actually part of the new iOS6 and therefore available, with upgrade, on previous models of the iPhone.

What are your thoughts on the iPhone 5?  Are you going to upgrade?
