Also - who would want to use LTE in another country and pay all those international charges anyway.. The only way to make it cost effective is to buy the iP5 'factory unlocked' and then get a prepaid SIM overseas.. But if I understand what you're saying -- having a CDMA phone, factory unlocked, would be the best of all potentials for travelling overseas.. Agreed?

iOS -close source, solely open only to apple (since they created it) and no one else. so less phones made
android os - open source - open to anyone, more companies involved in customizing and using them as there OS on there phones. So more phones being sold/made.

But I also concur with your concerns about Jobs' successor. Tim seems like a nice guy. He even has the Steve 'walk' down when on that stage.. But time will tell if he's an 'idea man'. I think Apple's got maybe 'one more year' - the 5S -- before people are going to wonder - so, Tim, what NEW can bring to the table? Like how iPad CREATED a whole new device called a "Tablet". There's something NEW out there - in the way we will 'do life' and communication. And Tim Cook won't be seen as a good captain - until he 'innovates' something new. I don't care if it's someone on his staff -- Apple, under HIS leadership, will need to 'do it again'... Pull a "Jobs"... This iPhone 5 is NOT that. And the '5' was already started under Steve anyway from what I've read.
I believe the next item or innovation will need to be step toward the iPad world and the laptop MacBookPro combining -maybe even eliminating the laptop. I don't know if any of you experience this.. but I have a 'stand up' case (folio) + bluetooth keyboard for my iPad 3 in Landscape mode and I spend so much time on that 'typing' and then 'touching the screen' - that when I'm on my MacBookPro I find myself touching the screen to move to the next object I need or for scrolling...
That's the next 'innovation' for Apple. They need to decide how to COMBINE the tablet and the laptop - eliminating one or the other - and not be apologetic about it.. That's a feat of Jobs proportions. Or at least bring touch screen to the MacBookPro.
A phone is a phone.. I don't see much real INNOVATION redesign coming any time soon. What else could they add?

I know why the whiners are so prominent on here, their SIII's either stopped working, bored with them, or their blow up dolls have a hole in them so they have nothing better to do. Face it, the iPhone is a much better phone than any other out there. Go patch up your girlfriends and re- inflate them.

And of course Apple will falsely boast about how record-breaking their pre-order and launch day sales were and how they sold out everywhere....meanwhile 4 of my co-workers will walk into an Apple store mid-afternoon on launch day....hours after opening and walk out with one 10 minutes later. Just like the 4S last year.

To read all this comment about the ip5 appearance, really? How do you want it to look like? SG3, if do then just get that phone. Personally I love how to ip4 was and now the ip5 have the same design, loving more with the internal specs. I understand having the phone for awhile and it gets old and boring, but if the phone form was great why change it? I mean really I know a lot of ppl love how the ip4 look. Personally the look of the iPod touch 4th gen is ok, but I can't use that, if apple was to make the ip5 a tear drop form, I be disappointed, I held it and feels like I'm about to drop it. I have to hold it by the edges. Well Idk about the ppl tht dislike the ip5 but I personally think it's sexy. I just want to know wht do the ppl want from a phone, tht are disappointed with the ip5?

If it weren't for iTunes and the App Store being so good they would sell far fewer phones. That's where they are better than everyone else. The phones themselves are becoming stale but once you have hundreds or thousands invested in media it's hard to stray.

There are a few apps that allow you to still use all of the Apple things you love. My calendar and contacts still work seem less with isync for cloud and calendar. Still use iTunes with Airsync and it even syncs my music playlist as soon as my phone is on my WiFi network with out me doing anything. Pretty cool. One of my concerns was exactly what you mention. Did a few google searches and found my answers. There are quite a few apps that bridge the gap, some free and some a few bucks. For me it was just time for a change. In a few years maybe IOS will seem new to me again after Android for a few years.
And nothing is perfect. I was one of the more then 1 million icloud users with out my email for the last two days. Just got it back late this afternoon, and I am still getting e-mails from early yesterday morning rolling in. Makes you realize how much we can become dependent on a company. Almost two complete business days with out e-mail is pretty sad. I was shocked it took a company this big almost 35 hours to get my e-mail back. Just happy it's back.

I wish they would've added a different choice of colors besides the boring old black and white they have each year.

Also do you follow cars at all? look at the mustang now and the mustang 3 years ago.. they are pretty much the same body with subtle changes. Does that make it a bad design? haha

Right. Another question for the guys in the know.
Will we be able to trim the Micro Sim Cards down to Micro sim ? The same way we did with the Sim Card to Mini Sim.
I take it that it is using a Micro Sim ? I used to use Nosey to cut Sim cards do you think they will be a tool for this ?
