iPhone 5 Giveaway! [Update x2: Winner Announced]

We’re giving away one 16GB model of black or white (your choice) brand-new iPhone 5 on a network of your choice to one lucky Redmond Pie reader! Want in? The details can be found after the jump.

The device, incase you haven’t heard, has been quite significantly upgraded by Apple, and as well as being the first Cupertino product to ship with the all-new iOS 6, it also packs in a larger, 4-inch display, improved 8-megapixel camera, Lightning dock connector, 4G LTE, and a brand spanking-new Apple-designed A6 processor.

Gaming, browsing, and general app using is vastly slicker than on the current iPhone 4S, which isn’t exactly a sluggish smartphone itself. With millions having already ordered and purchased their very own iPhone 5, you too could be among the very first to experience the latest and greatest iPhone.

Apple has certainly delivered improvements in all the key departments this time around, and for those somewhat disappointed by the comparatively meager upgrades offered by the iPhone 4S, the sixth edition to the range should serve as the perfect tonic. The design is as polished as they come, and as well as adding a smooth aluminum finish to the back of the device, Jony Ive and the design team have also helped make the iPhone 5 the thinnest and lightest achievement, which, is certainly no mean feat given the iPhone 4S is also (still) a design and aesthetic masterpiece.
