Sure we know the iPhone 5 will feature a larger screen, thinner profile, metal back and LTE capabilities. What about the front and rear-facing cameras that iPhone owners use every day? 9to5Mac explains that despite having even less space in the iPhone 5, Apple must upgrade the camera systems to keep pace with competitors.
Reports surfaced earlier this year that the front-facing FaceTime camera would be upgraded to HD quality. At the time, it was rumored that Apple would stick with the 8-megapixel sensor in the iPhone 4S camera. Since then, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, and Sony have been steadily improving their mobile cameras.
Pretty soon, PlayStation devotees around the world will be able to explore all things PlayStation using Sony's official iOS application. Running on iOS 4 or later, the app has already been released in selected European countries. The app will roll out to other countries soon.

The PlayStation Portable (PSP) has sold over 50 million units in the last four years, but Apple is quickly catching up, with 40 million video-game-capable units sold in only two years. According to the Nikkei Business Daily, Sony intends to compete directly with Apple's iPhone with its own mobile phone.
