This update seems to have fixed the diagonal scrolling issue. At least my iPhone 5 no longer "stalls" when I scroll quickly on a non-perfectly vertical manner.
The Apple Canada store is showing "Available: 2-3 weeks" for all models and I was going to ask you folks if I should tack on another week for shipping, however I just noticed that the US store says "Available to ship: 2-3 weeks" so I'm assuming it's the same. Earlier this week it was showing 3-4 weeks so I might just wait another week before ordering - I've got a friend who will be visiting from Canada in early December so it's a bit tight.   Some of you may recall...
$20?? What a ripoff! Over here China Mobile is providing Nano SIMs for free! My wife and I just got our official China Mobile Nano SIMs last week. We were previously using cut Mini SIMs, without any problems I might add, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to get a real Nano SIM since there was no cost. Ironically, the card cutting method actually cost us money as I had to buy a SIM cutter (~$4). Of course, at the time that the iPhone 5 was released China Mobile hadnt started...
  Dpreview has posted an initial review of the camera in the iPhone 5, and as I suspected the improvements are mainly in the software - better (as in, adaptive) noise reduction and sharpening, and an extension of the ISO range to a max of ISO 3200 (from ISO 1000 in the 4s). What's interesting is that at higher ISO's (above ISO 1000) it appears the iPhone 5 is using pixel binning to reduce noise, however the tradeoff of doing so is a loss of resolution.   Have a look at...

This is the cutter that I got, it works great:   http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=20067504316   Oh look, the same cutter is also available on Amazon (though at 5x the cost!): http://www.amazon.com/Cutter-iPhone-Convertor-adapters-Shenit/dp/B009FWTEEC/ref=pd_sim_cps_3   Officially the nano SIMs are supposed to be slightly thinner...
  Got it, so the unsubsidized phones are still in short supply.
  This poster claims to have purchased one.   http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/152924/non-contract-at-t-iphone-5s-can-reportedly-be-unlocked-via-itunes#post_2199464
Also, I thought all iPhones sold in HK were unlocked?
What do you mean? Isn't the carrier-free being sold in Apple stores in the US (not online)?
What's the price of the unsubsidized iPhone 5 at the Apple Store? Is it $649/749/849?
