The thing is, yes it may be faster, but who's going to write apps just for it. Not many. It has all this power and no apps to take advantage of it because app writers will write apps that work on phones from the 3GS to the 5. It's like buying a Ferarri and living in downtown New York and working there as well. When are you ever going to get the thing out of first?

Same goes with their fancy "retina" resolution display. How many apps are retina only yet? Probably not a lot, they are mostly for at least 3G or 3GS resolution and up.

But if you have no problem pre-ordering some $800 phone with specs that no apps will take full advantage of and cost about $9 in labor to make at sweat labor - slave shops like Foxcomm, just to help Apple further become the richest company in the world, then pre-order away.
