What makes the iphone 5 stand out above all others well simple look at the queue's all over the world for people to get a hold of one now i do like most other phones as well but come on you don't see people queueing along the road for a samsung galaxy s3 when it first came out so really enough said!!!

how come south korea and taiwan are not in the first-wave launch?
these are gadget-heaven countries!

I guess that apple thinks that samsung and LG dominate south korea so there is no need for a first-wave launch in there...


and other countries that I'm surprised that aren't at first launch:
Italy, spain and new zealand (because it's near australia...).

and if you scope out of western countries, you should also add russia, china and india!
and also mexico (u.s.'s neighbour...), argentina and brasil.

ok - all of these countries together is a too big launch, so too many devices would be needed...
but I think that apple would try to make it happen in the next launches.

I hope Nokia notes the significance of releasing a device into the market within a few weeks of its announcement. This is what Apple does best.

Bad news for the people who ordered the new iPhone 5. The delivery guys are using iOS maps to try to find your house.

i m not judging whether the iP5 is good or not, but i really dont understand the reason for queeing for a phone for a few days early.... i really think most of these guys should really get a life.... for a few mins of fame, they spend a few days sitting there.... they really got brainwashed! lolz!
