I just dont get it.
why do people invest so much money in a phone???

Instead, people buy into things which are "popular" and a majority never uses all the functions anyway. in Europe this thing costs close to 700 euros (!)

dogs are barking but the caravan moves on :)

Apple release 1 phone in a year. Why all of you are so worried? Android releasing 20-30 phone in months. Calm down android fans. One phone makes for you so many problems? :)

"“The iPhone 5 is unquestionably the best iPhone ever made, and for the mass market, it’s the best smartphone, period. Between the new design, blazing fast LTE, and excellent battery life, there’s little to not like here. It’s a competent, confident, slick package”

Welcome to backward land, starring the new iPhone5 - 24mth contract c£1100, plus c£79 for the handset, 8 million handsets to sell this by weekend... what's that? recession? what's one of them? one of the few things I know people can get more of this year compared to last year is "benefits"! For who, the taxpayer?

well it seems the black model turns up damaged, like mine, look here San Francisco, CA - In a shocking turn of events today, the worldwide roll-out of Apple's new iPhone5 has caused wide-ranging social disturbances due to an unforeseen manufacturing defect. As the dateline of availability has swept westward across the globe.

Many people will buy the phone only after handson experience . but still , underwelming performance of this phone when compared to competitiors may not bring rapid change in its market share . Android has almost 70% share doesnt it . That is still a big lead compared to 17% of apple .
