Long before Apple officially announced and debuted the iPhone 5 today, TechRepublic contributors and many other media outlets predicted what the new model might offer business users, whether it would disappoint, and how many Android users would switch to using an iPhone. Even though concrete details were provided at the Apple media event about the new iPhone model and iOS 6, some questions about how these new releases will translate into iPhone adoption and enterprise deployments remain unanswered at this time.

TechRepublic will provide detailed analysis of Apple’s news soon, but for now, here’s a rundown of some of the iPhone 5’s specs and features.

Pre-orders start September 14, 2012, and devices will start shipping September 21, 2012. iOS 6 will be released September 19, 2012 and will be available on the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 3GS, the iPad 2, the iPad 3, and the fourth-generation iPod Touch.
