Patch's Poll: Will You Buy the New iPhone?

Word is that Apple's latest will be available on September 21.

Ever since Siri burst on the scene in 2011 and started giving people advice about where to bury dead bodies, Apple aficionados have been waiting to see what will come next from the iconic smart phone.

The rumors were put to rest at a 1 p.m. Apple press conference today when the lighter, thinner iPhone 5 was unveiled to the world.

According to CNN, the new device has a four-inch screen that allows for five rows of apps. The iPhone 4 has a 3.5-inch screen that shows only four rows of apps. The phone has an improved camera and three speakers, and Facetime will be in HD.

The company's new "A6" chip means that the iPhone five can be twice as fast as its predecessor, CNN reported. It also has 4G LTE connectivity, which is compatible with the Verizon, AT&T and Spring networks.

Do you have to have it? Will you wait in line at the Apple store in a sleeping bag before the launch, or do you scoff at the price and think the slavish devotion to Apple products is totally misplaced?

Take our poll and tell us what you think in the comments.

Why the over-strong choice, "Yes, I have to have it" and not just "Yes"?

What, no joke about the irony of an answer saying "No, Apple is all flash ..." considering the iPhone's lack of flash support? :)

Yeah, the poll is aimed at Apple users only. i5 is nice, but I think the Galaxy S3 ate up a lot of its market... and is still the superior phone.

You can keep your iPhone, I'd take a droid any day.
