THE IPHONE 5 is HERE! Knowing it was coming, I almost asked Julie to switch days with me this week. Why? Because of Apple’s Big September 12 announcement, of course! But I refrained, instead waiting until the day after to SQUEE! So before you ask, YES I’m getting it. I have the iPhone 4, not the 4S. My camera is awful and it’s the only camera I have on me. So I NEED the better camera for pictures I post and want to keep! But the coolest thing I saw in today’s announcement? GPS with AUDIO turn by turn directions!!!! I can’t find my way out of a paper bag. Two days ago I got lost going to a local high school that’s closer to my house than my daughter’s school. This is awesome! I mean my car has GPS but in a quick, I’m lost pinch, I need this! And when I’m in NYC? Awesome! So yes, I’m getting the iPhone 5. And I am sure nobody is surprised. If you’ve been here since 2007, you’ll remember this post - me on the iPhone line outside the Apple store.
UPDATED/NOTE on the data – anyone interested but worried about losing your unlimited data plan – I’m on Verizon -do what I did – Call Verizon and have them check your data usage. I’m currently UNDER 1 GB and it’s costing me one penny more to have a 2 GB (the least amount) with the 5. I ordered mine this morning!
So am I the only one so totally psyched over the newest Apple gadget?
