Default iPhone 5

Well looks like the rumored release date is Sept 12 with an on sale date of Sep 21. Here's the latest update I've found:

" More leaks on what we can expect from the new iPhone 5 have emerged, but this time we have measurements down to the last millimetre.

According to Etrade, which conducted a comparison between the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 recording it on video, the new iPhone 5ís screen will be scratch resistant.

Scraping a set of keys repeatedly over both the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5ís display, the latter was left without a mark, while the iPhone 4S had visible scratches.

Back to the specifics of the iPhone 5ís front display and the panel is reported to measure 4.065-inches (we told you they were "specific"), but is in fact 0.1mm thinner than its predecessor.

The home button has also been slightly reduced, measuring 0.3mm, while the surrounding area has been reduced from 18mm to 15.4mm. The top area of the phone is also noticeably smaller than the iPhone 4S."

I'd love to get the 5 but I wouldnt get it until a few months later when the bugs are worked out. But who knows I may change my mind.

I am pretty excited for the 5 however I am sick of waiting!!
Me and the wife are most likely going to each get one however I know this release date is getting crazy, keeps changing and I hope you right with the September release date, I have heard that they are still making changes and whatnot to the phone so they were shooting for Nov-December (basically for Christmas) but then I also heard that if all the kinks (which there are always kinks) are not worked out by Nov that they will push it back to January!!

Anyway can't wait to get one, everything else I own is apple, why not a phone!!!

The connector is supposed to have few pins than the original and will make all current iPhone gadgets obsolete.

I'll pre-order just like I did with my iPhone 4. I've had the phone since the day before the launch and never had any trouble with it.

Not necessarily. I wouldn't be surprised if they made some sort of an adapter like they did for the redesigned MaSafe chargers. Either way, Apple has reached a point where they need the smaller connecter in order to have space for other things inside the phone, or to just keep it thin.

Although they are still rumors, usually the rumors become fairly accurate as Apple gets closer to releasing new products. If the "leaked" images and video of the iPhone 5 (or the 3d models that were made) are accurate, then I'm pretty excited for the release.

This article shows the new connector, I am pretty sure this is done intentional, the cattle will re-spend to get all the accessories too. Even with an adapter, It will be on the phone side, Could you imagine how poorly it will fit a doc?
I had the 3gs and went to HTC, The HTC is crap. I probably will get the 5 after the price comes down a bit as I don't have any accessories for a iphone currently.

If I can get one before October 12th without jumping through hoops and the price is reasonable then I'll get the 5 over the 4s.
