With information coming from sources with a reliable track record, iMore has reported that Apple will begin taking pre-orders for its new iPhone 5 smartphone on September 12th, in the US at least, the same day as the expected Apple unveiling event.

Whilst this information will allow eager Apple beavers to know when to plant their wallets on the desk, poised for placing a pre-order, we suspect what users over in the UK will be most interested in are release dates outside of the US. Whilst we can't confirm if UK pre-order dates will match those in the US, it has been suggested that international stock will be available in the first week of October, most likely October 5th.

If these dates are to be believed, punters in the US will be able to Facetime friends over on the other side of the pond to gloat for a good two weeks or so, as the US is expected to receive stock on September 21st, nine days after initial pre-orders begin.

Apple iPad Mini?

As the days pass and there remains no sign of iOS 6, we suspect that Apple is holding back on release of its latest mobile operating system to increase the impact of the iPhone announcement. We continue to wonder if we'll also see the much rumoured iPad Mini at this time. Either way, we've now less than a month to wait for all to be revealed.

So what do you see in other competitors products that make them stand out differently to apple?

I don't know where all of this apple hate came from, only 6-7 years ago people were hoping they would topple the M$ empire and now this. Personally on my next upgrade I'll probably get a Galaxy S III don't like how apple have changed its connector meaning all of my accessories are practically defunct.
I don't know, can't say I've ever been behind Apple much. Never had a good experience with a Mac OS machine, not a huge fan of Apple inspired aesthetic sense either. I did own an iPhone 3GS and liked it very much but the OS hasn't scaled well with new functionality and the look of the device wasn't what I'd call typically Apple either.
I can certainly see the appeal. A slick, easy to use UI and a product marketed as a premium device has a lot of appeal to a large part of the market. It's not for me (I'm a substance over style man myself) and I also take issue with some of Apple's business practises but I'm not blind to the appeal. I think those that claim to be are being deliberately obtuse...

Being obtuse? Yes, yes they are.
