Why I'm Buying The iPhone 5, And Why You'd Be Wise To Do So Too

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.

Another day and yet another video showing off the new iPhone. But stay with us, because this might just be the most authentic-looking one yet, seeming to confirm everything we've heard about Apple's latest in one fell swoop. A taller screen? Check. A smaller dock connector, deeper 'home' button? You bet. And much slimmer, still, than the iPhone 4S.

iPhone 5 Photos Show Off Taller Screen, Mini Dock, Metallic Back

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 might well mean we now have our hands on what the Korean company behind it label as the best smartphone currently at market, but that doesn’t mean for one second the iPhone 5 rumour mill doesn’t also get us all hot under the collar.
