iPhone 5: 10 Things To Expect From Apple

Can't wait for Apple's iPhone 5 coming out party on Sept. 12? We have the smartphone scoop.

Will the iPhone 5 have near-field communications (NFC) technology, the fledgling feature that enables wireless purchases and data transfers? We probably won't know for sure until September 12th. NFC has been a rumored iPhone 5 feature for months now, but the new handset's new casing (more on this later) is raising doubts that the new handset will have the feature. AnandTech, for instance, recently posted a detailed technical explanation as to why the iPhone's new metal back would make things highly problematic for an NFC antenna, resulting in poor performance. Given NFC's nascent nature, it wouldn't be a shocker if Apple decides to wait until next year to add it.

re: iPhone 5: 10 Things To Expect From Apple
Isn't it also interesting that iPhone sales dwarf Samsung's? It's certainly a matter of choice. I was so persuaded by reviews that I switched from iPhone 4s to Samsung Galaxy S3. After having the S3 I can say "For me it's not superior to the 4s". For me the S3 is to big, the 4s display is much sharper & there is no comparison in android's to Apple's. The S3 may be superior in specs but in usability it doesn't compare. The S3 I think for the most part has it's place with gamers and the younger generation but I as I said it's a matter of choice and it's seems most choose the iPhone. I'm looking forward to the iPhone 5.

Apple's advantage is and always has been the user interface / GUI. They make it easy for people to use there devices. I have an iPhone because of iTunes, if andriod or Mobile 8 get an nice music player I'll give my iPhone to my kid. For my needs nothing else is superior about any Apple product.

Isn't this interesting because iPhones are starting to copy Samsung (still a superior product).
