New iPhone expected to be unveiled today

Have you held off on buying a new phone so you could get the new iPhone 5 instead?

The Associated Press reports that after weeks of speculation, Apple is expected to announce a new smart phone today.  Apple created quite a buzz after sending out an invitation via e-mail to reporters with a shadow in the shape of a "5.''  

The announcement will be held in San Francisco at a venue where Apple has held many product launches. The new model is expected to work on 4G, cellular networks.  This will allow Apple to catch up with many other rivals like the Samsung's Galaxy S III and many others that already use the 4G network.

The new model will likely go on sale in a week or two. Apple also plans to update its phone software this fall.  You won't find Google's mapping service or YouTube on the new operating system.  The AP says the rivalry between the two companies has intensified. It is unknown if Apple will announce a smaller version of its iPad today.
