A Look at iPhone 5
Unless you’ve been living under a Blackberry, you probably have heard the news that the iPhone 5 was unveiled yesterday, and will be available next week. I confess, I’m an Apple Fanboy, and I’ll definitely be pre-ordering my 4th iPhone tomorrow, regardless of what they announced yesterday. Plenty of others have covered the release, so we won’t pretend to offer anything new, instead we’ll highlight some of the best iPhone related stuff we’ve seen around the web.
