    Apple iPhone 5: 'A Rolex Among A Sea Of Timexes,' Says Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster who also asks the question “Why would someone by a Timex when they can have a Rolex for the same price?”

    Indeed.

    My iPhone 3G was black. My iPhone 4 was black. I've been open to get white, but I think I'll be getting my iPhone 5 in the two-tone black rather than the white/silver. Part of it is the fact that I think black is the more transformative color. When watching video or reading, the focus is on the content, not the materials of the device.

    I don't think anyone mentioned it yet.. but the iphone 5 uses the new nano-SIM. You can swing by your nearest ATT Wireless corporate-owned store. They'll upgrade your SIM for free, and activate it within minutes.

    But thats a cheap imitation of the iPhone that they used iPhone technology on, and it's been suggested breaching copyrights too; so who's got himself some crapple thenicon_lol.gif


    And Apple is 100% original?

    Even the name and logo of Apple Computer isn't original: stolen from Apple Corps by the largest narcissist in modern history, Steve Jobs.

    Scruffy, they're all just toys. Ordered my new Toy today.... as usual, my Dad wants my hand me downs.

    Trust me, I know. I just feel like sometimes we need to keep things in perspective. I mean fuck....ya got TWO choices of colors....black or white. I can't believe it's big of a decision. I still have my old iPhone from years ago and can't believe people just run out and buy a new one every time they come out with a slightly different model. icon_rolleyes.gif

    So you recommend buying a phone that was proven to have stolen Apple's patents? Not sure that that phone will even be available for sale much longer....

    I hope you sold your house and every single device you own and booked a trip to Africa to make donations to those villages in need.

    smartmoney saidI pick stupid, because you would have to be a complete moron to buy a new one at this point. Let the lemmings be the test sheep to work out the bugs and if you need a new phone, wait a few months.
    Otherwise, why replace what is working...

    Agree icon_exclaim.gif

    As much as I AM lusting over an i-5; I think that I will wait until after the first of the year to purchase one.

    That's my initial feeling, as I wrote above. But knowing me I'll probably cave early anyway, just like I did with the 4, and the 4S, waiting merely a month to make sure no disastrous bugs are revealed.

    As I also wrote I'll wait to see the actual phones at our local Apple store to decide on color. I like my white 4S, and it matches my white iPad. (And man do we love that iPad, use it every day, we compete over who gets to use it and he's started calling it "his" iPad. I can see another one's gonna be a Christmas present for him)

    But the all-black 5 does have an elegance, at least in the pics, and reviewers have mentioned that, too. Whereas the new white loses some of its distinctiveness with the aluminum back. With a white bumper my 4S is totally white and a soft grey, the silver metal edge hidden, and I likely would get a white bumper again on a white 5, so that's an appearance consideration, too.

    ah yes, hanging on the horns of a dilema on this issue icon_exclaim.gif

    unlike some peeps, I trade phones infrequently, my current samsung propel has been mine since 2005 icon_exclaim.gif

    I'll have to see both colors in stock, in my hand, side by side, to make this long term comittment decision.
