Apple Unveils New iPhone 5

Apple unveiled the next generation of iPhone today. Will you be upgrading?

The details on the new iPhone 5 from Apple were announced today, and the sixth model in the series, is taller, thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4S, according to Apple Senior Vice President Phil Shiller in an article by CBS News.

"It's an absolute jewel," Shiller said.

The iPhone 5 will have a 4-inch display, allowing for five rows of apps, according to CNET.

CBS reported that the biggest updates to the phone, though, are the camera and iSight. The camera will be smaller, have an 8-megapixel sensor and will be able to take panoramic photos. Additionally, video would be in 1080p HD, with 720p in the front-facing camera.

The iPhone 5 will be available in stores Sept. 21, reported CNET, and the prices run the same as its previous version of the 4S: $199 for a 16 Gb version, $299 for the 32 Gb and $399 for 64 Gb.

Will you be one of those waiting in long lines in Montgomeryville or Lansdale for the next generation of the iPhone? Tell us in comments.

Verizon is putting their unlimited data plans to death. I don't trust Apple and their enthusiasm over the iCloud (a data traffic cash cow for Verizon) and i'm disappointed in Apple's lack of commitment to American jobs. I don't plan on upgrading my 4. Too many reasons not to upgrade.
