    Yeah but only out of pure curiousity, not because I would want to own one. Will be interesting to see if any features that have not been leaked are added if nothing else.

    what's the hurry, you only need to wait 1 year to the iphone 6 which will kick ass, but it will be nothing compared to iphone 7, so maybe you should wait 2 years

    Ive been fed up with iphone4S size since the first week I bought it. The only way I can actually use it for typing is when I pair it with apple wireless keyboard and type with that.

    Screw iphone. I'll switch to a real phone such as Samsung galaxy SIII instead. BIGGER screen, not that widescreen piece of shit with keys just as small.

    I don't get it. What is apple thinking?

    All smartphones are crap. Apple act like your life is incomplete without one. Why do I need a portable personal computer? My life was fine without it.

    How is using my phone when with my friends or walking in the street going to enhance my life? I don't think so. The world was better without portable computing.
