Apple finally announced the iPhone 5 on Wednesday and it looks like a winner to me. It’s thinner than the iPhone 4S, at 7.6 millimeters and lighter too, weighing 112 grams. It has a four inch screen, which is half an inch bigger than any previous iPhone and the A6 chip inside makes it about two times faster than the 4S. It is 4G LTE compatible, which is a big deal; it means your phone could work on 4G LTE systems globally, if carriers allow. The cameras are also better. The 8 megapixel outward facing camera can shoot 1080p HD video and the 720p front facing camera means awesome Facetime fun. The camera also has some neat new features, like the ability to take panoramic photos. As expected, the connectors will be brand new, so if you want to use your old docks, you’ll need an adaptor. The iPhone 5 is available for pre-order on September 14 and for pick up on September 21.
