iphone 5 assistant sounds pretty incredible

Iphone 5 mockupwell the rumour mill has been going for what seems like an eternity with regards to new features and looks on the hopefully imminent iPhone 5. hopefully not too long to wait now as it would appear the phone will be announced on october the 4th and then released ten days later on the 14th. improvements are rumoured to include; assistant, 1GB of RAM, the dual-core A5 processor, nuance speech-to-text, and an 8 megapixel camera. looks wise it's going to have a rounder metal back, larger screen (although not larger phone).

easily the best part of this new assistant feature is its integration with something called wolfram alpha, an online computational knowledge system. you could essentially ask your phone facts or questions of all types and get an instant response. For example, you can ask your phone a currency conversion or ask how many meters are there in 46ft. I supposed you could ask for directions while driving too. pretty cool shit if you ask me.
