Once again Steve Jobs & Apple create a Cupertino style earthquake heard around the world with last night’s announcement of the iPhone 5! Many were expecting the announcement to come later this summer but Jobs’ announcement that the iPhone 5 would be available on tax day, April 15, reminds us of how he thrives on the wow factor and element of surprise. Apple apparently made a deal with every state in the US to waive all sales tax for the big “tax day’ launch.
There are some exciting new additions for the iPhone 5 guaranteed to satisfy any Apple fan. The biggest news centers around the fact that the iPhone 5 is a satellite phone which will make all mobile phone carriers obsolete! Apple partnered with Richard Branson’s Virgin Satellite company, Virgo, to create a phone experience that will change the way the world communicates. Apple and Virgo will be giving away a trip to space aboard Branson’s Virgin Galactic to 5 lucky winners. Five iPhone 5s will be loaded with a winning message and mixed in with the first week shipments which are expected to be near 2.1 million!
Not yet confirmed but inside sources say Apple will offer a 500 gig version of the iPhone 5 for $999.
