    Is it finally going to do simultaneous voice and data?

    iPhone 5 LTE bands:

    1 (2100 MHz)
    3 (1800 MHz)
    5 (850 MHz)
    13 (700c MHz)
    25 (1900 MHz)

    iPhone 5s LTE bands:

    1 (2100 MHz)
    2 (1900 MHz)
    3 (1800 MHz)
    4 (AWS)
    5 (850 MHz)
    8 (900 MHz)
    13 (700c MHz)
    17 (700b MHz)
    19 (800 MHz)
    20 (800 DD)
    25 (1900 MHz)

    I don't know what this data means, except LTE is "improved".

    I was wondering about it as well.
    Let's hope so.
    NO LTE-Advanced though..

    I find it unlikely. Supporting more bands of LTE isn't the issue. More hardware is required for dual band operation.

    They should put more hardware in then.

    It is an embarrassing oversight / decision that should be corrected as soon as possible.

    Also, on a slightly different subject, I watched the video for 5s at apple website. Pictures on the phone appear to fill the whole screen in the demo video. Does anyone know if they finally realized it was dumb to take pictures at 4:3 aspect ratio on a 16:9 screen? Or is the video just doctored to make it look like the photos are 16:9?

    It also looks bad when streaming photos to my high def TV via Apple TV when they don't fill the screen. I don't want to have to edit each photo individually to widescreen before I show pictures.

    I'm glad photos aren't automatically widescreen as they would look worse on my iPad.

    Yeah, they SHOULD just add more hardware! Do you want to volunteer to apple to figure out how to fit it in?

    I have the money. If they want it, it's their job to figure it out. Samsung did. Every other phone maker did, too.

    Samsung phones are also substantially bigger and heavier.

    Have you held a Motorola Mini? It's only about 0.5 ounces more than an iphone. Roughly same dimensions, but 4.3" screen.

    I'm not saying I'm going to buy one, but if they can do it, why can't Apple?
