iPhone 5 just doesn't make since. 6th phone and every iPhone has reasoning behind it's name. 3G because of connection. 4 because it was the 4th. And 4S because it was the 4 with Siri. But the 6th phone called 5. Better have 5 cool features.

Where can I watch the live coverage?

What time is the iphone announcement due to be made?
Hi! What do you think about iPhone 5's wireless charging? We know it has a new smaller plug for charger, so will there be wireless chargig at all? Awesome live blog, btw :)

@Kevin How does the iPhone five not make sense? if they went to iphone6 everyone would be clamoring for months asking what happened to 5.
Parrish9/12/2012 4:14:33 PM
I'm one of the weird ones on this, I guess. I'm most anxious to hear about iOS 6 for the iPad I bought just a few months ago.
Chris C9/12/2012 4:15:07 PM
Will we even get the iPhone in the US? Reports of Samsung suing to block them from being imported.
Nate9/12/2012 4:15:18 PM
Is there a strong possibility of pre-ordering today off the apple store site? If so, what account credentials are needed?
Rich Brown9/12/2012 4:15:18 PM
I haven't seen anything regarding the new iPhone and wireless charging. To me, the Qi-based solution in the Nokia 920 seems a little clunky for an Apple design.

I hope Samsung doesn't sue Apple over 4G LTE use in the iPhone 5. Yes, Samsung does hold the patent, and normally I'm pro-Samsung. But suing is not the right way to get what you want.
madtyper9/12/2012 4:15:58 PM
@David Hamilton will it be posted on here or somewhere else?
David Hamilton9/12/2012 4:16:28 PM
@madtyper So far as I know, the Apple event is not being streamed anywhere. So stay right here, and we'll tell you what we know as soon as we know it.
Devan9/12/2012 4:17:08 PM
wow, great to see everyone from buzz out loud back again! too bad it really was only apple events
Rich Brown9/12/2012 4:17:20 PM
We're having some tech difficulties with our in-house video stream. Hope to have it squared away soon.

why an ipad mini? whats the point
Rich Brown9/12/2012 4:18:34 PM
Apple has dominant market share in tablets, but Amazon coming on strong with their lower priced Kindles. A smaller, lower cost iPad would help Apple beat Amazon back.
David Hamilton9/12/2012 4:18:55 PM
@Chris C So far, rumors of Samsung suing are just that. We'll believe it when they file in court. And even then, the odds of Samsung obtaining a preliminary injunction against the iPhone 5 seem, well, low. Though stranger things have happened in these patent battles already.
bmferreira139/12/2012 4:19:58 PM
chances of the mac mini getting a silent update after this?
David Hamilton9/12/2012 4:20:12 PM
@Rich Same with Google's Nexus 7, btw.
James Martin9/12/2012 4:20:16 PM
Rich Brown9/12/2012 4:20:43 PM
I think anything's possible in terms of low key Mac updates after this event. CPU update is long overdue on desktop side.
