So, after mulling my options I preordered a black 32GB iPhone 5.
It was a smooth experience on T-Mobile in Germany at around 7am local time…around three hours ago.
My girlfriend tried at 8am, and still hasn’t been able to order one. Total overload.
Anyhow, I was contemplating the white one for a bit, but decided against it. Mainly because a white iPhone kinda looks girly to me, and because of the black borders that are always present on the outermost part of the screen.
I went with a 32GB model again, because I anticipate that the apps will be a little bigger this time around when the developers take advantage of the extra screen space.
Right now I’m only using about 12GB on my iPhone 4. I have all my music in iTunes Match, and 3G is pretty fast to download albums when I’m away from WiFi.
Speaking of 3G: When I ordered the iPhone 5 this morning I looked everywhere for the LTE option, anticipating an additional charge from T-Mobile, but I couldn’t find the box to check. I’ve heard it will be an additional 10 Euros. I will call them to figure this out.
Overall I’m very excited for the 6th generation iPhone, which should be a huge upgrade as I skipped the 4S, due to contractual obligations.
I will review it thoroughly once I get it on the 21st.
