Green iPhone anyone?

Engadget live blog[^]

My take:

I love new gadget announcements. Love em. But this one (like the last) has left me a little bit underwhelmed.

I absolutely love the idea of a fingerprint sensor. An absolute necessity not just for phones but for signing into anything in my opinion.

64bit? Faster graphics? Yeah, great, but on a day to day level it won't dramatically affect me (especially since I don't play games on phones).

The motion processor seems to be a lead in into the iWatch rumours. Fitness accessories are a huge market and Apple is perfectly positioned to hit the market hard. I really do wish they had been able to announce an iWatch to shown Samsung what a real smartwatch is like (the Gears watch was such a fizzer)

The colours: No black which isn't surprising at all. MY black iphone has lost most of the pain off the beveled edge so it's natural for them to make this problem less obvious. However I feel like an old man when I see those 5C colours. Ugh. Ah well.
cheers,
