    Apple.

    Samsung typically provides better quality screens in apple devices than other vendors (like LG).

    Anybody buying a retina mbp next year (likely when they update it) is likely going to be pisses if LG is the sole provider of those screens. (they have significant image retention issues, unlike the Samsung lcd panels)

    It will be interesting to see whether apple simply finds other suppliers or considers making more of their components in house.

    My iPhone 5 order has changed status to "Preparing for shipment". Should have it before the end of the week

    When is it supposed to be available at retail stores in Sweden?

    28th of September. But all stores except our first Apple Store in Täby, Stockholm had very limited stock. But I'll make the trip to the Apple Store for any high demand in the future. They had iPhone's for everyone and then some for the iPhone 5 launch. Seems like the best bet.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention Apple is the only one selling unlocked one's as well.

    Nice

    I'm back in the UK now so going to go to my local Apple store(s) and see if any of them have an unlocked handset that I can pick up. I hope the stores have some, i'd be surprised if they didn't.

    Hope you both get your fix.

    On an other note, it smells like iMac today.

    Anyone ever bought a Sim free iPhone before? Whilst looking at Carphonewarehouse's website i came accross this:
    Please note: iPhone will lock itself to the network of the first SIM card that is used in the phone. Subsequently attempting to use it on any other network, for example by replacing the SIM card, may mean it becomes permanently unusable. SIM free iPhones can only be used with a UK-network SIM card, and will not accept foreign SIM cards.


    Is this true even if i buy one directly from Apple? The whole reason i want to buy a sim free phone is so that I can go on different contracts when the time fits. At the moment I want to swap to '3' but in a few months time I may want to go on a whole different network. If that quote is true, it's thrown a spanner in the works.

    If it is properly unlocked (which apple does offer) that it shouldn't be an issue.

    ^^ Yes that sounds weird. If you buy an unlocked iPhone, it should be unlocked, period.

    Don't know about the U.K but iPhone's bought here via Apple for full price that are unlocked are totally unlocked and remains so. Shouldn't be a difference in the U.K. You could always call Apple to ask just to be sure.

    ---

    BTW: The event today is streamed live on both the Apple TV and online: http://www.macrumors.com/2012/10/23/...pples-website/

    I hope they continue doing this now!

    Am I right in the assumption that the event will start in 20 minutes? Or have I gotten the time zones wrong...?

    I'm watching the live stream of this!!! 200 million devices on iOS now.

    www.apple.com/apple-events/october-2012

    Live streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on Mac OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.

    I'm watching it PERFECTLY on my iPhone 5.
