New iPhone 5 Is Here & Every Mom Needs One

Tech Talk 9

iphoneThe moment the gadget-loving masses and devout Apple fan boys have been waiting for has finally arrived: Today, the iPhone 5 was unveiled. And it's being called (by Apple) "the thinnest, lightest smartphone ever." Which is good. Because the fattest, heaviest smartphone would be a bad business decision. The new phone will run on higher speed LTE networks (i.e., we'll, hopefully, get our data faster); it's made entirely out of aluminum; as widely suspected, it has a larger, 4-inch screen; and it contains an "A6" processor, which supposedly will make this phone run twice as fast as the previous generation.

Of course, none of these features are what's coolest about the iPhone 5. Moms, get ready to toss out your old iPhones. You're definitely going to want an update after hearing about this.

The iPhone 5, which has been dubbed "an absolute jewel" by Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook, has an amazing 8-megapixel camera that can take pictures on higher resolutions -- if you thought that was possible. Yep, even better, clearer photos of your adorable kids -- from Apple's "thinnest" smartphone yet.

Before I had a child, I bought a super fancy (super bulky) camera, thinking I'd be lugging it everywhere I went, capturing my kid's every move. But no. Not the case. When you have a diaper bag and a car seat to carry, you're not bringing a camera, also. So I've been using my iPhone 4S for everything, and I have to say -- it's fantastic. Some the best, clearest photos I've taken of my daughter have been with my phone, and now that I know there's an even better one out there -- well, that might just be cause for an upgrade.

Are you getting the iPhone 5?

You do realize the iPhone 4S has an 8 megapixel camera as well don't you? It's the iPhone 4 that has a 5 megapixel if that's the ONLY reason you would swap out phones then you may be disappointed.
