“Apple’s 2012 quad-core iPhone 5 promises power and performance no comparable Android device can ever hope to match, even as the iPad continues to incinerate all comers in the tablet space,” Jonny Evans reports for Computerworld.

Evans reports, “When it comes to the user interface, Android is rusty. Instructions lag because the UI side of the ‘experience’ is based on legacy code originally designed to support a BlackBerry-style experience, rather than the iPhone paradigm Google hastily bolted onto its OS in its attempt to copy its one-time ally’s innovation… this is why Apple’s iPhone 5 will be so dangerous, delivering a bang for the buck others will find exceedingly hard to match.”
