Pretty unimpressive event by Apple and Tim Cook. I missed Steve Jobs in this event. His absence was stongly felt. This was one of the lamest 20min iPhone demonstration ever. As far as the device concerned, it is not much of a great upgrade from iPhone4S or iPhone4. Many people would skip it becuase there is no big of an improvement except for 4G LTE and the bigger screen. But, for the other pool of fans these are the most wanted and anticipated features for iPhone.
If you are deciding not to go with iPhone 5, you still can enjoy almost all of it’s features on your iPhone 4 and 4S. Because, iPhone 5’s most and very important feature is iOS6.
For me, the news that new iPhone is releasing is enough to upgrade my current iPhone.
