re: 5 Alternatives To The Apple iPhone 5
Apple is counting on Sheeple to upgrade every time they stamp a new name on their old news. Hopefully more like RudiX are learning you do not have to follow blindly and buy, buy, buy every time a new phone hits the street. There's not one thing I can't do with my Droid RAZR that an iToy user can do with their phone and I can swap out memory sticks for essentially UNLIMITED memory options. Apple has lost all avenues to steal ideas from so they have to sue to stop from losing their market share which is, from some reports down to 20% or so of the smartphone market compared to Android which is outselling Apple 2 or 3:1 every day. By 2015 the iToy will be relegated to the zelots and the rest of us will be on Androd, but let's also not forget Windows 8 Mobile which has received almost universal positive reviews even from the most anti-Windows reviewers. If MS does their job right by 2015 the 2 horse race may just be Google & Microsoft, but I'm sure Apple will sue both of them too.

re: 5 Alternatives To The Apple iPhone 5
After reading what has been written about the iPhone5, I just don't see any justification for upgrading our iPhone 4Ss which are just a year old. Perhaps when the iPhone6 is introduced and Apple decides to do some serious work on the device I'll feel differently. But this go-around call me disappointed. On the other hand, I've saved at least $400 by sitting this round out.
