iPhone

USA Today is liveblogging it:

1:15 p.m. It is official: Apple announces iPhone 5.

Apple exec Phill Schiller is on the stage for the iPhone presentation. It's made entirely of glass and aluminum. Thinnest lightest... 7.6 mm thick 20% lighter than 4S.

It is the same width but taller screen, 4" diagonally. "It should be easy ... More apps on every screen"

1:24 p.m. ET:

Specs: GPRS, EDGE, Ev-DO, HSPA, HPSA+, DC-HSDPA, LTE: single chip, single radi, dynamic antenna.

The world's most advanced display, says Shiller.

He shows OpenTable and how it looks better. Of course, movies take advantage of that new display... has 40% more color saturation.

New 4" inch retina display allows developers to do more, says Shiller. It makes a "better application."

1:25 p.m. ET: Here's the carriers: Sprint, AT&T, verizon in U.S.

There is a brand new A6 chip that's two times faster at CPU and chip graphics, as well as 22% smaller.

There's up to 150Mbps on Wi-Fi.

1:26 p.m. ET: "It actually makes the game easier to play," says Murray showing off car racing game using new graphics. "Now this is something we have never seen before. ... On a powerful new iPhone" ... leaves stage. Schiller back.

1:30 p.m. ET: Schiller: 8 hours of 3G talk time. 40 hours of music playback. iSight. 8 megapixel sensor. f/2.4 aperature. Dynamic low light mode ... "you really see the difference in those low light images."...

I never had a iPhony 1, 2, 3, nor 4, so I probably won't be buying this overpriced toy to make me feel like I'm accepted member of cosumerist society

I just moved from my parents house in Iowa. I had pretty good coverage with Verizon. For those that live in the city, should I stick with Verizon or do you think I should go with At&T or Sprint? Any help would greatly appreciated!

2:04 - iPhony? Really man? Who the F are you, Rush Limbaugh?

^ if he was Rush Limbaugh his comment would have been funny, and you would have no doubt felt personally insulted. Nah, that's more Rachel Madcow type no-laugh-humor.

I haven't used my mobile phone to actually talk to another person in about a year and a half. and yes, I have plenty of friends and family.

3:39 I am so happy to hear that you have friends and family - in fact, PLENTY of them! It sounds like you have really built a healthy, fulfilling life. It is important to make time to speak to the ones we care about, even if it's not on a mobile device.

Love,

i know this is not just a music site and everything, but come on dudes! what is this doing here? 1st comment was pretty titties though.

Sounds like a good deal to me! I’m happy that the iPhone 5 is finally here, and all the rumors can be laid to rest. I’ve heard everything under the sun about the new version, but it sounds like all the good ones are indeed true! One of my coworkers at Dish even said it was going to have a 3D camera, so I’m glad to read everywhere that is not the case! I am excited about the larger screen and 4G through. I love using my Dish Remote Access app as much as I can to watch all of my favorite TV shows on the go, so having the faster speeds and larger viewing area will be awesome! My 4s does pretty well for what it’s got, but I’m really looking forward to the day I won’t have to hold it up to my face to watch my shows, lol!

you spam your sorry site on a page for an article from last year, you are "waiting" and your url is "latest..."
I thought you bots / people were getting better at this, but for every step forward with the methods, you take two back in failing to understand the context before butting in with your lame pitch.
Look at Aly's comment, now that's world class spamming right there!
