Almost all around the world, when iPhone 5 launch today, the iPhone fan is queuing to get one. Like in London, the queue have caused traffic jam and some fan even have camped to get a queue number in order to be the 1st to get the phone. Everybody is so eager to get hold the phone which lighter, bigger screen, faster processor, slimmer and installed with the latest ios.

In Singapore, the launch is started with big bang where 3 providers is revealing their price plan. If you are a Singaporean you can even get the phone for free by contracting a higher phone plan from Singtel. Attached the picture of the plan comparison by telcos in Singapore.
UBM TechInsights, one of the tech UK company reveals the component cost for making iPhone 5 is less than US$168. It is US$35 more expensive compared to the cost of iPhone 4S. The higher additional cost is on the newer A6 processor US$28 and then the Qualcomm 4G LTE modem US25.
iPhone 5 is sold for US$649 worlwide, so you can imagine how much Apple made by selling the hardware. Anyway we are also paying for the sexyness, brand name and research cost right. Anyway I might get one anyway. he2
Oh wow , laser keyboard and holographic features. WOW.
As recorded in youtube, the Fox 5 News “added” two supers features to iPhone 5, it will come with laser keyboard and holographic projector projecting the screen into thin air. If it is available now, I will also wait in the queue for iPhone 5. ha2. Sure this news will boost more people into the line. ha2.
The video clips shown in the news is actually concept video for iPhone 5 design (rumour before iPhone 5 announced), and these are features that all of us dreamt about. but unfortunately it is just a concept for now. ;p I just wonder whether that the news editor checked the news content before it was broadcasted. Lesson learnt.
The same picture was taken using iPhone 4S by Scott from DPreview.com when traveled to Big Sur in California.
As shown, picture taken with iPhone looks sharper and it capture more space as iPhone 5 uses 4.1mm lens for a 33mm field of view compared to iPhone 4S’ 4.3mm lens which resulted in a 35mm field of view. According to Dpreview, the image from the iPhone 5 was taken with ISO 50 setting compared to the iPhone 4S’ ISO 64 setting, which suggests that the iPhone 5 uses a new, improved, slightly larger sensor that is able to take in more light. This matches with Apple’s claims of iPhone 5’s camera being able to take better photos in low-light conditions.
Let wait for the actual review by the iPhone fan’s out there.
