That is odd. I work with Fedex and UPS people everyday. Last year they were in a rush to ship out the iPhone 4s and the normal stuff didn't come in until hours later. This time around, they said they didn't have many iPhones to ship this year.

Is there now 5 million very happy owners of iPhone 5 or how is the general feeling, did you get your money´s worth of "beautiful design" and seamlessly working OS and apps? Would you pay the same amount of money now after few days´of use?

Display mate says iPhone 5 screen is best

"Based on our extensive Lab measurements the iPhone 5 has a true state-of-the-art accurate display its not perfect and there is plenty of room for improvements (and competitors) but it is the best Smartphone display we have seen to date based on extensive Lab measurements and viewing tests.

"In particular, they note that the iPhone 5 has much lower screen reflections, a much higher image contrast and screen readability in high ambient lighting and notably improved color accuracy and picture quality. "

This says something pretty sad about humanity - or at least one section of it

Not just that some people buy iPhones, but they are so *totally desperate* to get them at the *very first* opportunity, even without really looking before they hand their money over (and rather a lot of it, too)...

I wonder what the 'unique feature' of this telephone is which makes it necessary to upgrade to it as soon as it is launched - maybe the calls and SMS's one receives when using it will be more interesting?
