Detailed hands-on video of iPhone 5 front panel hits the web

The iPhone 5 could have a 4.065in display with a smaller home button

A hands-on video of the supposed front panel of the next generation iPhone provides a detailed comparison between the iPhone 4S's front panel and the alleged leaked panel from Apple's supply chain.

ETradesupply posted the video, which was created by iPhone5parts.net, along with a blog detailing the dimensions of the front panel. The leaked part, which is described as the "iPhone 5 glass lens" is 90.25mm long and 51.60mm wide, while the iPhone 4S is 76.65mm long with the same 51.60 width. These new dimensions leave a display area of 4.065in, 0.455in bigger than the iPhone 4S's display.

The blog also claims that the iPhone 5's display is made with the same material as the iPhone 4S, but it 0.1mm thinner.

The leaked part also indicated that the front facing camera hole on the iPhone 5 will be positioned in the middle of the device, rather than the left as it is in the iPhone 4S. The report states that the camera could be smaller on the iPhone 5.

According to the report, the light sensor has moved to the right side of the iPhone, and has decreased in size, and the diameter of the home button hole has been reduced by 0.3mm.

It is expected that the iPhone 5 (or new iPhone) will arrive on 12 September at a special Apple event. Rumours suggest that it will be thinner and taller, with a two-tone metal back and a smaller dock connector.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
