Are You Excited for the New iPhone?

In two weeks, it is expected that Apple will unveil its newest smartphone, the "iPhone 5." It is also predicted that it will be on sale September 21. Many current iPhone users may want to get their hands on the latest model, which will be faster, slimmer (making it easier to carry around), and will have a bigger screen.

Now those features are great and all, but there are still a significant number of smartphone users that swear by the Android system, which is provided by more carriers than the iPhone. The rumor that the "iPhone 5's" price tag was $800 blew up on Twitter a few months back, but it seems like it was just that--a rumor.

As for the new interface, it will mostly remain the same, but can store close to 40 percent more data than the iPhone 4S. And, the thinner body combined with the bigger screen is expected to prevent the new and considerably more powerful model from losing large chunks of battery life. We will soon see whether or not this new iPhone will capture the imagination of current Apple fans, and maybe even convert some Android users as well.

    I don't belong to the elitist Apple cult where people are happy to pay more for a more restrictive product.

    I like the iphone. I probably won't be getting this one as the one I have - the 4S is just fine. I don't just run out and buy the latest one. This one will be replaced when it dies with a new iphone. :o)

    I'm not one of those people who mindlessly pay more for their phone whenever I new version of it comes out. I was one of those people that still have a 2G phone as the iPhone 3G and 4G were considered old.

    I have an Android now, and I don't plan on upgrading for something newer and flasher just yet. lol

    I don't own an iPhone (I got an android :-( ) so I'm always excited to see the latest iPhone. If I bought a 4S for example, I probably wouldn't care about the new one since I'd have the previous gen. model, but if I had a 3G or 3GS for example, I probably would be interested.

    We could build them here if the Government didn't tax corporations to death. And what we call "slave" labor here, they call it a good job there compared to their options.
  • Ryan jerry 2012/09/04 05:50:07
    Ryan
    I'd agree, but American's are too lazy to ever do that job. It's basic fact we've lost the major manufacturing production, and we'll never get it back. China has it, and India is coming up fast to over take them.
  • Ryan ryan 2012/09/04 05:45:26
    Ryan
    Um you realize that same company in China makes almost 80% of the electronic products in the world right? Pretty much every single company uses them, because no one else can do what they do. Also it's hard to call it slave labor when they pay a good bit higher than the average wage for that area...

    The question is "am I excited for the new iPhone?" No, I am not. Now another question is "do I want to check it out?" And to that I say yes. I mean why condemn a product just because if the manufacturers past? Does this mean that the day it comes out I'm gonna sprint straight to my nearest store and drool over it? Absolutely not. But android has served me very, very, very well and apple better step up if they want to sway me.

    This phone? $200 w/ contract and mail-in rebate. And my previous contract is almost up so I can get this phone! Plus my carrier usually has some "get a phone free" deal with a contract being the only catch so I don't mind. I expect this phone to last the two years anyway.
