iPhone 5: The Most Beautiful Product Apple Has Ever Made?
The iPhone 5 was unveiled today. It’s lighter and slimmer than its predicessors, the iPhone 4 and 4S. During the presentation, an Apple executive called the phone “the most beautiful product we have ever made.”
Mashable reports that the iPhone 5
has a larger screen than previous versions, at 4 inches, with a resolution of 1,136 x 640 or 326 pixels per inch — which is still a “retina” display, as Apple defines it. The larger screen has a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio and has lengthened the phone overall, but it also allows for a total of six rows of apps on the screen — five rows on the “pages” along with the permanent single row along the bottom.
The phone goes on sale September 21 with a price of $199.
