    Thanks for your concise informative article regarding the pros & cons in buying the iPhone 5. My wife has the iPhone 4 and anticipates upgradinh to the 5 in November, and she certainly hopes to see more reasonable pricing for connector adapters. I have the Samsung SGH-1727 running Android 4. So she likes her phone more and I prefer mine, although I have used an iPhone for a while and an iTouch for severals years, and then gave it to my daughter.

    Most reasonal people would agree there is no perfect phone and choices are good. Lets hope that both Apple, Samsung, HTC, etc all innovate and succeed to bring consumers mobile devices that are useful and provide good value. In addition, I hope that both Microsoft and Blackberry can define their place in the mobile marketplace too, as in particular I would be interested in trying out the upcoming Windows 8 based devices. Over the recents years I have weaned myself off my Microsoft Office/Outlook dependence become more comfortable with my Google App experience. I do not want to be in Apple's, Amazon's or anyone's walled garden, but rather assemble my own array of services and features on the devices of my choice.
