Woo, look there's a new iphone coming with a 13mp camera based on a megapixel theory and having a new name because of a camera with more megapixel. This is called I-nnofu*kavation.

My Motorola Atrix has a fingerprint scanner. But its going to be released on a Apple product so obviously they invented it. I suppose my Experia Z that Im getting in March with its 13 mpx camera will pale in comparison to the 5S simply because its a iPhone. Apple is become a has been.

and this is meant to give consumers confidence. knowing there is a new device out 6 months after the last one. silly, the words i-tanic comes to mind. apple is going down the kermit. why not get a samsung at least no 2 devices look the same. and you can be sure of a company thats the best.

Usually may, june, july were very busy months compared to s3 sales.
As s4 is expected to hit global market during those periods this year, it seems like apple wants to come to party early. This is is exciting from consumers pov.

After both these tech giants launch their best smartphone of the year, it will be a sales volume race between the two as both are toe-to-toe when it comes to marketing their products.

> In reply to RALPH @ 2013-01-26 11:27 from vaSB - click to readYou don't need to buy a new one. I still have Xperia from 2011 line, and its 2013, and even though there are better phones out there, that somehow doesn't make my phone any worse.

iPhone is past, think about ipad4 or whichever one was released with ipad mini - NO ONE talks about it, it looks exactly the same as predecessors, on the outside and inside. I like the size of ipad mini, but they couldve introduced it with retina display from the start. I knew they were going to release ipad mini retina 6 months later. Look at samsung for example, they release new stuff, s-pen for example is a great innovation (dont get me wrong, i'm not ultra samsung fan or anything), xperia Z, durable, high performance smartphone, apple? extra row of icons... Oh, and you need to change all your cables, there's a new non-standard connector.

Apple and other companies stop producing products one after another. Stick awhile with present devices. I am bored every month apple produces a ''new'' ipad. All about money.......

I think iPhone 5s's body will be slightly thicker for 13 megapixel camera sensor.
