    Ready for iPhone 5? Apple announces event next week

    By Brandon Griggs, CNN

    Wed September 5, 2012 | Filed under: Gaming and Gadgets

    (CNN) — It’s looking like Apple’s next version of its iconic smartphone will be called the iPhone 5. On Tuesday, the secretive company sent e-mails to members of the media, inviting them to an “invitation-only event” in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 12. The event is widely expected to be the launch of the next iPhone, but in typically cryptic Apple fashion, the invitation reveals little about what will be announced. The tagline says only, “It’s almost here.”

    [b]Apple Officially Reveals The iPhone 5: LTE, 4-Inch Retina Display, New A6 Chip, Lighter Than iPhone 4S[/b]
    CHRIS VELAZCO

    [i]And just like that, months and months of breathless speculation have finally come to an end. Apple’s Phil Schiller has just officially announced the new iPhone 5 at the company’s massive press event here in San Francisco, less than a year since its predecessor was unveiled. Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 will begin on Friday, September 14, and the device will ship to lucky consumers starting on September 21.

    [quote]The revamped camera also supports 1080p video capture, and users can now snap photos while recording video at the same time. [/quote]

    That’s pretty cool. I’ve often been torn between snapping photos or recording video of kids birthdays and other events. Nice that you don’t have to pick one or the other and can do both. ;)

    I wonder how many billions HTC will sue them for?

    In 2014. You could probably start waiting in line for it on September 22nd if you’re super hardcore.

    so it says it’s thinner and the screen is bigger, but did the case change dimensions in the X-Y direction?

    It’s also lighter. I can’t wait to lose my first one.

    [b]Here’s what Real Racing 3 looks like on iPhone 5[/b]

    [i]Take a good look at the screen above, because it’s from today’s live demo of Real Racing 3 at Apple’s press conference event for the iPhone 5. The EA Firemonkeys game, announced last month for iPad, will be optimized for the upcoming Apple device later this year.

    Except the controls will be pretty awful.

    Anyone try to play GTA3 on the iPad? terrible experience.

    It may have the horsepower to play the games, but control is key and neither the iphone or ipad has it. Stick to angry birds, like most smart phones.

    And on another note, yawn it’s faster and bigger. Where is the innovation? Apparently it died with Jobs. The new maps is just a big f u to google. And if I’m not mistaken you can’t download the entire country like Nokia on their Lumia series of phones. I have it and it is pretty fantastic.

    It’s like the iPhone 4S, but bigger and faster! with no new features … sigh. What is the A6 processor anyway? It’s unusual Apple didn’t use the same processor that is in the iPad3. All we know is that it is X many times faster than the previous generation. And that you can play fantastic games … if you can control it.

    How much is actually left to really innovate at this point? Until they come out with the iChip that implants directly into your brain I think they are tapped for a while.

    I’ve not tried GTA3, but my experience has been that mobile devices are infinitely better for casual gaming than they are hardcore gaming. They’re also much better for native-made games rather than retrofitted ports with control schemes originally designed for different types of controllers.

    That being said… a gaming “cradle” would work wonders to address these issues. Something along the lines of this:
