Like many, I awaited the iPhone 5 announcement with interest. Admittedly, although I'm not an iPhone user I always enjoy seeing manufacturers push the bar on technology.
To my suprise however, the annoucement was underwhelming. A somewhat bigger screen, better performance, a new power connector and a new look. All in all, not so different from the release of the iPhone 3GS. While these are all very worthy updates, and the iPhone 5 undoubtedly looks like a great device, Apple is operating in a very different competitive landscape.
