    Ok, but I take my phone with me everywhere I go, and when I run it's with me as my GPS device that tracks my runs via runkeeper. I don't want a 7" screen on my darn phone...this thing has to be able to fit in your hand, in your pocket, etc.

    This is what happens with an established product. Once it works as you want and people love it, you simply make it faster, smaller, lighter, and get better battery life.

    If steve jobs was alive, he'd be outraged...

    The new iphone isn't along the lines of the company believing they know what people want before they want it. It's now them giving what people want, and catching up to the others. Built in Facebook? Android already has something like that. Windows Phone has built in social networking and had it before ANYONE. NFC support? Nope. Wireless charging? Nope. A stand out feature? I don't think so. A stretched out iphone 4 doesn't equal groundbreaking, it just equals keeping a user base satisfied.

    Gee, it doesn't even enter the higher end android or Windows Phone class! I seriously believe in my bones Windows Phone 8 and android 4.1.55.3.3.4.4 or 5 will be the desired handsets and will be competing against each other. I don't see the iphone breaking new ground other than existing users. I read a preditiction that apple will sell 10 million of these "new" phones within weeks. They probably will, but many of which will be upgrades from the current previous iphone and the one that has Siri preinstalled.

    Lackluster indeed....

    Before I forget...

    Apple

    I'm outraged right now at apple as they obviously copied the Nokia Lumia 920 for their new nanos and the itouch (mini-ipad) looks like the 820. So it's not cool for Samsung or anyone else to copy, but it's totally cool for THEM to copy?! No! Outrage! I hope Nokia sues them as they have a patent they filed recently over the design of the Lumia 9xx series.

    Thanks for the update, Coke.

    Lol! I just asked a friend who boasts of his iPhone verses my Droid. I couldn't take his comments any longer, so I asked him to see it so I could test it to see if it would float on water.....it didn't.

    Overall, though, Apple seems to have put its focus on the important things you want in an app phone: size, shape, materials, sound quality, camera quality and speed (both operational and Internet data), and that’s good. I’ll have a full review once I’ve had some time to test the thing
    Guess it all comes down to perception. Is the glass 1/2 empty or half full.

    Why cant they just use a micro usb port like everyone else? Lightning port? Really? They are worse than Sony in their heyday with the proprietary crap. Sorry Apple. Nokia 920 FTW.

    I"ve have an Motorola Droid X2 with Vz service for year and a half. Talk about picking a lemon model! This particular model had screen problems from the get-go. Great phone when it works. Never had problems with apps, synching, etc. I just recieved my 4th ->Yes! 4th replacement phone last week. I tried to talk Vz into letting me get a different model 2 phones ago. No dice. The one they just sent me has a screen problems. Not only do I think it's the physical screen hardware, but also a driver for it is inefiecent. I'll contact them again for another replcement. I'll keep contacting and getting one until they get it right.

    I'm done with Android, Motorola, and Google. I'm up for a new one in January. It will most likely be a Samsung Windows 8 phone. I just saw one. It's sweet.

    Most are biased towards the iPhone, it can't do no wrong. Even when they come out with a new phone like the iPhone 5 with no actual technical innovation (unheard of from Apple at one time), the media needs to dig for a positive spin on them. What they should actually do is not be biased and give the real impression which is NOT impressive at all.

    Compare specs between the Nokia 920 and the iPhone 5 and the Nokia is on top pretty much across the board. Better screen, better battery time, better camera etc. The only win I see from Apple is in their strength and that is in marketing. It is this marketing that gives users the perception that Apple products are superior, even though often they are not.

    Oh well, work provides my cell phone for me. I haven't bought a phone for personal use in over 12 years. I'll use whatever they give me, and with our provider it's mostly a choice of Droid, some iPhone and 1 Windows phone (HTC trophy).

    Verizon has confirmed multiple Windows Phone 8 devices for later this year, perhaps the 920 will be part of that offering.

    time will tell. Will keep my eyes out, I was up for an upgrade over a year ago, but I'm happy with my droid 2, so I haven't changed. I don't want to give up my physical keyboard.
