The iPhone 5 wasn't the revolutionary device people anticipated. I get that. The feeling of solidarity through disappointment about the sizeable lack of innovation from the last generation (which had already stung many before with a near identical device compared to the year before that) has been felt by even those faithful solely to Apple. This should have been the phone they announced in 2011.
So why do I find myself as one of the two million who ordered the phone within the hour? After so many blog posts rallying against the purchase of the iPhone 5, recommending such a device is going to be an impossible task.
