No thanks.
I prefer a phone that I can customize, is fashionable, and is not 2 generations behind my year old Android.

BTW, does anyone know of any black tech sites, especially ones for Android phones?

I don't know any, although, I haven't looked.

Android rocks :).....

... but I have Apple products too.

...The big day is over, lol, and there seems to be two(2) major problems Sister Destee; Map applications and purchasing the adapter. Its reported that 25 million will be spent on adapter sales alone, and Apple's map appl. is very faulty compared to Google's...

The iPhone 5 supports faster 4G mobile networks and also comes with a number of software updates, including Apple's new in-house maps feature, which is based on Dutch navigation equipment and digital map maker TomTom's map data.
But not everyone was impressed. Some users criticized the maps feature for a number of geographical errors, missing information, and a lack of features.
And not everyone was thrilled with Apple's success.

Apple iPhone 5 fever rages despite grumbling over maps

SAN FRANCISCO/LONDON (Reuters) - Apple Inc fans queued around city blocks worldwide on Friday to get their hands on the new iPhone 5, pointing to a strong holiday season for the consumer device maker despite grumblings about the mapping app in the new smartphone.
The iPhone 5 -- thinner, lighter and with a 4-inch screen -- went on sale in stores across the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia, with mobile carriers reporting record demand that looked likely to stretch Apple's supply capacity.

... SMH, all this comes after gross sales were made, wow!

Apple had used Google's Maps since the launch of the iPhone, but with iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, both released last week, it moved to its own solution which it has been building for quite some time. According to reports, Google and Apple still had another year to their agreement, but Apple wanted to create its own solution. Google has not released a standalone app for the iPhone or iPad, thoughThe New York Times reports that it will be out before the end of the year.
