Apple iPhone 5 (CDMA / global)
Granted it isn't every band that could be supported (although T-Mobile's AWS 1700 HSPA+ is going away in favor of PCS 1900 HSPA+, and thus it isn't a big deal to not support AWS HSPA+), but still, that is a TON of radios to stick on one chip. Although no LTE for 700 and 1700 bands, it basically covers most US LTE anyway thanks to Verizon's amazing LTE ubiquity as of late. It even makes the AT&T version look... well... less global? Even the "Global" version is... well... less global than the Verizon/Sprint version just by virtue of losing LTE 750 and LTE 1900 and gaining nothing in return.
Regarding both US versions of this new iPhone 5, I say AT&T is getting shafted, T-Mobile is...
All that, and they made it thinner and lighter.
I know it may look similar to the last one, but from an engineering standpoint, it's impressive.

Wow another row of icons!, how innovative!! Are you freaking kidding me man? I'm so glad I dumped my iPhone for Android and never looked back. Guarantee you after a few weeks of owning an iPhone 5 people are gonna be like, meh. Cause that's exactly w...
The real question is... how many people would STILL buy an iPhone if it WASN'T the epic status symbol that it is now?

It's definitely distasteful, but it's total fiction, thank goodness...
Now you can have 20 icons on one screen instead of just 16!
1. They upgraded Siri. I still think its a gimicky feature, but they spent alot of time marketing it, so they should upgrade it.
2. They made the screen bigger.
3. HD camera on the front.
4. Lens on that 8MP rear camera sounds like its going to be pretty good.
5. If the antenna performs as described it sounds like a pretty innovative approach.
6. Sounds like it was constructed out of really nice materials, but I'm curious how all that glass will stand up to drops.
2. You still can't remove the battery
3. No sim card slot
4. Bigger screen or not, it still do...
