As fate would deal, the announcement was filled with stats and details for every Apple product under the sun, except an iPhone 5. Check out some of the stats below:
It comes with upgraded internals, including the new Apple A5 chip and 1 GB of RAM. Apple VP Phil Schiller revealed that it will be the first iPhone with a dual-core processor and dual-core graphics. It is “up to seven times faster” than the previous iPhone, he announced.
The device also contains a new antenna system that allows it to switch between two antennas for better sound quality and download speeds.
The device also contains a new 8-megapixel camera that can take 3264×2448 images, an increase of 60% from the iPhone 4.

Looking to sell your iPhone 4 and spend some of that money towards your new iPhone 5? SELL NOW!
According to CNN, beating the potentially millions of folks who will be buying a new iPhone and selling their old one could put more money in your pocket.
While some retailers offer discounts for a trade-in (Radio Shack was offering $100 for some previous models when the iPhone 4 was released), Apple stores and their designated carriers generally don’t give back as much cash, or credit, as an owner might earn outside the store.
But a growing online resell market has emerged to give folks another option.
Between now and Monday, the day before Apple has scheduled an iPhone-related event, one of those sites, Nextworth, is offering $250 for 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4s that are in good shape.
The company, which also has trade-in programs at some retail stores, bills itself as a way to get value out of your aging electronics while keeping the products out of landfills, where they can cause environmental problems.
Gazelle.com is offering $250 for a 32GB iPhone 4 in “flawless” condition and $169 for one in good condition. Got a busted model? It’ll give you $85 for one even if it won’t turn on or is physically damaged.
Of course, there are always the direct-sale sites like eBay and Craigslist. (I have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS that I’m willing to sale, but let’s face it, unless it’s an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 – no one is even trying to hear it….lol.)
Divas and Dorks has confirmed a freebie for all you guys & gals! How would you like a free Apple iPhone?
Best Buy is offering a ONE DAY SALE on Apple iPhone 3gs. If you’re available for an upgrade or looking for a new contract, you can get an Apple iPhone 3gs FREE OF CHARGE. Don’t believe me? Check it out HERE!
