There were a lot of rumors last days before the presentations of the next generation of Apple smartphone – iPhone 5.  Various sources were describing design and technical details of the new coming gadget.  In general the majority of rumors were true. IPhone 5 got large 4-inch screen, powerful A6 processor and new 9-pin port. The resolution of iPad display is 960×1136 pixels. Although the resolution of iPhone 5 is slightly lower than the top-end Android-devices, the density of 326 dpi of  iPhone 5 display is slightly higher.
