iPhone 5: Will the new Apple iPhone 5 be a success even without major changes?
If you trust the rumors, the new iPhone will not be a big leap from the 4S, which many investors and customers expect from Apple. The housing is supposed to be thinner, the screen larger, but still less than that of Samsung Galaxy S III or the latest Motorola Razr model.
You will be able to rapidly browse the web with the iPhone 5 thanks to an improved processor and 4G capability. The device comes with the latest standard LTE technology which is the same used in the new iPad model and most other current smartphone models. Most news about the new mobile operating system iOS 6 was already presented at the developers' conference in June. The main talk of the conference was about the integration with Facebook and your own 3D maps software.
The competition for the new iPhone is tougher than ever. Many new devices are coming to the market, last week Nokia presented the Lumia 920, which is a new smartphone model with a unique design. The Lumia is considered the flagship of the new Windows Phone 8 operating system from Microsoft. Some experts predict that Windows Phone users will grow by 140 percent in 2013, but still will rank third behind Android and Apple.
