    It's not the same camera, it's only the same number of megapixels (which aren't everything).

    Anyway, I'll probably be getting this. I've been long overdue for a smartphone, and my 4th gen iPod Touch is getting a bit long in the tooth. Might as well kill two birds with one stone here.

    Shame Windows Phone 7 hasn't panned out for Microsoft.... I loved my Zune HD and was hoping that WP7 would be a success, but while the OS is good, the hardware it's available on and its lack of apps doesn't appeal to me in the least.

    I was at the Sprint store the other day (yeah, I use Sprint, I'm lame like that), and since the 5 hadn't been officially announced yet, the store had a waiting list to be put onto the waiting list when it was announced. I can't think of any other phone that there would be something like this for.

      Anyone else disappointed (yet for some reason unsurprised) that the new iPod Touch only has the A5 processor, when there's now the new iPad-exclusive A5X and the A6?

      I mean, I don't want an iPhone. I don't want to deal with the contracts that come with it; I'll stick with my moderately-dumbphone for a while. Using an iPod Touch as my general-purpose device (starting with an MC-model 2G of all things), I feel as if Apple is actually trying to slowly weed it out.

        I don't necessarily think Apple is trying to weed out the iPod, but the market. The majority is now saying that they don't want single purpose devices. With the advent of the smartphone, people use those instead of dedicated music/movie/work/browsing devices.

        If anything, I feel Apple is hanging on for dear life (iPod I mean). Even iTunes itself is antiquated in a world full of Spotify, Rdio etc...

          I'm more disappointed that it doesn't have the same camera as the new iPhone. But then again, I'm probably gonna get the new iPhone, so I need to forget about getting the new iPod regardless of how sexy it may be.

              I have a Droid 2 Global and I can upgrade my phone at the end of the month so I was planning on getting it, but I changed my mind. I think what I'll do instead is just get a 4S instead when they discount it.

              And that's with a Dual-Core CPU. That means single-threaded performance is incredible.

              Let's just hope Telstra's prices drop before my plan expires or I'll be sticking with my iPhone 4 for a while.

              I love my iPod Touch (2nd gen), and having followed some of the updates and unveiling of the iPhone 5, it had me somewhat interested as I've been looking for a new phone. However, I just don't know if I could justify dropping $200 off the bat for the lowest model, plus $70 a month with limited data and minutes for 36 months. I also really don't like iTunes, which is why I only put new music on my iPod 3 times a year at most. All in all, I think I'd rather get something like a Samsung Galaxy, which might cost a little more up front, but I won't be stuck in a long term plan and the monthly rate will be lower, while the phone is equally powerful.

              That said, I work at a mall that opened up an Apple store about a month ago, and while I'd heard horror stories of how busy they could get on launch days like this, it was insane how much was going on when I walked by during my break. Even when I got off at 7:30 PM, while it had died down a considerable amount, there was still a line-up outside of about 20-30 people to just get into the store. I don't think I would ever be so excited for any one thing that I would stand in line for hours on end, let alone to drop a couple hundred dollars after the fact.

                I'm surprised with these "new features". They've been on Android for quite some time now and I can't imagine not having them, prior iOS6. Anyway, I don't see the iPhone 5 as anything special, I'm not an Apple person. But really, I can't see myself using an iPhone, even though I would like to see myself having one, I guess I prefer Android OS.

                I must say that well done to Apple for the Guided Access feature; maybe it's because it's the only thing not on Android yet, but it's really a great idea. And also the phone is crazy light! I don't like light phones but it's great for people who do. They did a nice job with that.

                Can't afford a iPhone 5 at all, especially seeing as I'm rather clumsy with my tech. Looks more like evolutionary upgrade rather than a revolutionary upgrade, which is a shame, although some of the added functions do look rather nice (NFC is missing though).

                I hate the iPhone 5 so much. It's such a waste of money.

                I have an iPhone 4 and I love it. The iPhone 5 is exactly the same as my iPhone 4, except it is bigger for fitting in another row for useless apps, has Siri, and supposedly runs faster which is crap.

                Sticking with my iPhone 4, and after that I may get an iPhone 4S. I just hate the iPhone 5. It's so dumb. Nothing new or charming about it.

                By that logic, you also hate every iPhone ever made. It's the same phone every year with minor hardware changes, so saying the iPhone 5 is nothing new is saying the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S is nothing new as well. And if you scroll up and read the benchmark test, you would find out that the iPhone 5 is miles ahead in terms of performance above every other smartphone and tablet.

                And siri is faster because of iOS 6... I'm not sure if it's actually been coded to run faster on the iPhone 5.

                I love this phone!

                I like that it runs faster, and I really do need that.

                Though I feel it's kinda a letdown to have it so long, but I'm sure I'll get over it x]
