Nearly time!

Going to be announced today/tomorrow. Probably available in US a week after.
Looking forward to getting a bigger one.

Do they usually release in Japan at the same time, or later?

4.7" and 5.5"

I am looking forward, as are many, to hearing how the original size is no longer optimal and big screens are daft.

Having said that, I would like a phone with a bigger screen myself, I don't enjoy fannying about with a tiny keyboard/screen.
Pies.

I hear that a lot.

I will probably be going for the 5.5 and I think that will almost be 'too big'.

I didn't know there were 7" phones. That's just a bit smaller than the iPad mini!
Surely that's just a tablet that 'does phone stuff'?

Don't you feel a complete plonker sticking that up by your ear?

Yep 6.5 inches or around that size.

It is the Sony Xperia Ultra Z, not to confuse it with the smaller Sony experia.

Mine is just a whisker under 7, but I believe docomo actually has one that is crack on 7.
And no its cool to speak with my sized phone.
And no it is a phone, not a tablet, more like a phone that does tablet stuff.

Unless it's a secret of course. Or made up.

I mean, who gives a feck about the size of the screen? What matters is whether you can make sweet sweet music on it!

OK daftness aside.

I see the new iPhone can be bought 'SIM free' on apple website. Well, it will be next week.
Does that mean that I can stick a card in when I'm overseas and use local carriers.
And how does it affect my au contract now?

New U2 album sounds suitably bland. No change there then.

Looks like you can buy that sim free version online and presumably you'll be able to use your current sim card from iphone 5, stick it in the new one and continue using.
Presuming you have paid off the cost of the iphone 5 hardware, it will just continue.
I think?
