Apple launched the much awaited iPhone 5 yesterday at a media event in San Francisco. The new model has a 4 inches retina display and a redesigned body as the key upgrades which are visually apparent. The other key features are:
The iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone yet and apple has achieved some amazing engineering feats in getting it together. Some of them are:
The iPhone 5 is available for pre order in the first batch of countries starting today and will ship on 21 September. Apple plans to launch it in 100 countries by December of this year. Here are some high resolution images:
Here is an official video from Apple explaining what went into making the iPhone 5:
The iPhone 5 should launch in India by this Diwali (assumably at the previous absurd pricing of the iPhone 4S). It is best to get the unlocked models from the US which are priced at $649, $749 & $849 for 16Gb, 32GB and 64Gb respectively. We suggest to wait until it is officially available in India as it uses the nano sim. The smallest available sim cards in India are micro sim whose chip is bigger than the whole nano sim. So you cannot crop it and pop it in your iPhone 5 like we did with the normal sim cards. There are rumors that Airtel, Vodafone and Aircel have placed orders of nano sim cards indicating that the India launch is imminent. We believe that October is going to be the time when Apple might launch it in India.
