We cannot deny that there are handsets on the market with much greater spec than the I phone 5. However we must realise that apple is a giant as a manufacturer and their large prices are generally a result of buying into the brand rather than the product. Much like a weekly shop in Tescos would be considerably cheaper than Marks & Sparks. Granted there doesnt seem to be much difference in spec between the 5 and 4S, other than a handful of perks, however "if its not broken why fix it?".

The new lightening adaptor also "disappointing"

Availability of the new adapters has already begun to slip significantly, with Apple now quoting shipping estimates of "October" for new orders through its online store. The company's $19 Lightning to USB cable, which comes standard with Apple's latest devices but which should be popular as a standalone purchase with customers wanting to set up multiple charging locations, has also slipped from 1-3 business days to 2-3 weeks.

Apple's new A6 chip is a dual core ARM Cortex A15 CPU with quad core GPU.

http://appleinsider.com/articl...ex_a15_phone

From the article:

"The site added, "This is a huge deal because it means Apple beat both TI and Samsung on bringing A15s to market."

Previous generations of the Apple-designed chips used in iOS devices used ARM Cortex-A8 (the iPad / iPhone 4 A4) and Cortex-A9 (iPad 2 / iPhone 4S A5) processor cores. The Cortex-A15 is the next major jump for the ARM architecture, which calls the core "the highest-performance licensable processor the industry has ever seen."

Iphone5 very disappointing, you now have to wait to get it:

Just an hour after pre-orders for the iPhone 5 went live, Apple Store shipping estimates for new pre-orders have already slipped to two weeks in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, and Australia. Once transit times are accounted for, users pre-ordering now may not receive their iPhones until nearly two weeks after the official launch date of September 21.

Could it be that it is going to be a smashing success?

LOL...don't worry apple just want to make sure that all the add-ons you will sustain or buy is from apple company. so that when you buy their product you just have to buy their other products. and don't worry because after you have bought your iphone5, they will just have to release iphone 5S so that you will waste again your money just to be in the rich and famous line..
