Are you getting an iPhone 5?

You reserve the right to wait to vote until after the Apple announcement, tomorrow at 10am, which we can discuss here.

Feel free to post a link to the live blogs from the event from the various tech sites.

No. But I'm a tech geek and am interested to see what it has to offer.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

I will most likely get one. I am eligible for my upgrade and my iPhone 4 battery has gone to shit the last month.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

A combination of No options; I don't like Apple products in general, and I have another type of phone that I like (Galaxy Nexus). That said, I have an iPhone 4 from work and generally love technology, so i'm curious to see what kind of new stuff is coming out. And my girlfriend is waiting for an upgrade, so she will be getting the iPhone 5 for sure.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

Same here. Just hope it is worth it and priced somewhat reasonably on the upgrade.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

It is possible that I would get one, but, based on the leaked specs, no.

i highly doubt that they would increase the price a lot...maybe $50 at most.

I doubt I will be getting it. I'm happy with Android for now. I am curious what they will be unveiling though.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

I don't think there will be any huge "wow" items on the phone. But I would thing there would be more than a bigger screen and faster processor.

Global LTE is bigger than the bigger screen and faster processor imo, no NFC, probably bigger battery, probably improved cameras, the rest will likely be iOS 6 based.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

Not unless there's something amazing about it which hasn't been leaked. The GS3 has been great so far. A 4" version of the same iPhone seems like a downgrade.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

I don't see how any phones at this point are going to have some "wow" items anymore... Im not eligible for an upgrade so unless I can "scam" my way into one, I wont be getting it but I am interested to see what the changes will be.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

Too bad that it won't include NFC, since some features in iOS6 would be great with it.

Right now, based just on rumors, I'm not that excited about the iPhone 5. And I don't think they will reveal anything exciting today.

I got an iPhone 4 in release date, so I'm up for an upgrade, but I'm fine right now with the phone. I can wait for the iPhone 5S, that would probably include all the "missing" feature.

OTOH my wife is ready to upgrade. We are in family plan, so we will see.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

I don't think NFC is "ready" yet, so I understand why it wouldn't be included now. Next year makes more sense but by then I'm sure Apple will be seen as "late to the party".

They're already late to the party if they added it to the iPhone 5.

Yes, right away. My iPhone 4 is a bit long in the tooth.

Re: Are you getting an iPhone 5?

I'll be pre-ordering right away, my first iPhone...but the main reason is because I'm sick of US Cellular's shitty coverage where I want it the most. Friends with Verizon get fine coverage in those areas. Had a Samsung Mesmerize the last couple years, and it's been ok, but I figure for about the same price as a GS3 I can try an iPhone. As I get older I appreciate simplicity more.
