iPhone 5 pre-orders sold out in 1 hour





The first batch of iPhone 5 devices were sold out in just 1 hour after they went on sale at midnight last night. The ship dates for iPhone 5 pre-orders slipped to two weeks away.

Last year, the first batch of iPhone 4S devices sold out after about a day of pre-orders. Either supplies of the iPhone 5 are less or its selling incredibly well.

UPDATE: Now it is 2-3 weeks.

Apple announces the new iPhone 5



iphone5

Today Apple introduced the new iPhone 5. It has a new design, however it looks a bit like tall iPhone 4S.

It is 18% thinner than the 4S, just 7.6mm. It's even 20% percent lighter at 112 grams. The in-cell retina display is 4-inch with 1136 x 640 resolution. Apple says new iPhone 5 has a better color saturation with full sRGB rendering. That new longer screen allows for an extra set of icons to be displayed on the home screen, and first party apps have already been tweaked to take advantage of additional pixels. The tweaked ratio puts the iPhone 5 display closer to 16:9, but it's not quite there.

iPhone 5 supports worldwide LTE as well as HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA. 802.11n Wi-Fi can connect at 2.4ghz and 5ghz. Performance is said to be 2 times faster with new A6 processor. iSight camera features 8-megapixel sensor, backside flash, hybrid IR filter, five-element lens, sapphire lens, f/2.4 aperture, next-generation ISP, spatial noise reduction, smart filter, better low-light performance, 40 percent faster on photo capture, and HD video recording (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio.
Front FaceTime HD camera has 1.2MP sensor, improved video stability and is capable of recording HD video (720p) up to 30 fps. Audio system was also improved. iPhone 5 has 3 mics and improved speakers.

iPhone 5 confirmed to use nano-SIM, current SIMs not compatible



iphone5-pr-34-angle

Apple did not mention that iPhone 5 would use the recently approved (and Apple-designed) nano-SIM standard. Apple is relying on that even tinier subscriber module for GSM, HSPA and LTE networks. Unfortunately it is not possible to create nano-SIM out of micro-SIM. Cutting does not help, they are just not compartible.
