Upgraded to iPhone 5

The new iPhone 5 which I ordered on last Friday has finally arrived! It is just in time for an iOS app project presentation on February 4. The iPhone 5 is really a sleek and sexy baby. Unlike some plastic phones, I still can feel its weight despite of its slim profile. Its form factor…
