New iPhone Leaked

Video showing new iPhone 5

iPhone 5: New leak claims to show new phone being switched on with bigger screen | Mail Online

as a iPhone 4S user, I am ready for the newer, larger version

As this is a phone shown to power up, with everything already reported in the design changes, little chance this is a trick.

The weather apps are a great aid to me in knowing when and when not to sail. My lake is small enough, the Nav apps are of no use to me. the iPad is just too large for my taste on the sailboat.

I have a iPhone 4 and love it. I received an iPad for my birthday. Initially I thought, I can do everything on my iPhone why do I need this? I too felt the iPad seemed just to big and awkward. However, as the months have passed, I find I use the same apps (including the apps I use for sailing) on my iPad more and more, especially the weather apps. It is just so much easier to see everything, especially with the retina display on the new version. I love my iPhone but, these days, my iPad does most of what I did on my iPhone and my iPhone is used mostly for a phone. Having a bigger display on then new version will not be a selling point for me. I do think it is interesting that cell phones are getting bigger these days, after years of getting smaller and smaller.
