This page will be updated live from the start of the Phone 5 event, which is only a few hours away!

GadgetWiki.com will be live from 10AM (PST) / 6PM (UK time) Covering the event which is taking place at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino California.

We will have regular updates on the new iPhone 5 features including the new pricing model and any new software updates and gadgets. After all the rumours we will see the actual specifications.

The current speculations point toward an updated fast dual-core processor, the A5 chip which features in the iPad 2. The iPhone 5 will possibly have a camera upgrade, hopefully 8 Megapixels and also sport a larger screen.

Perhaps the most interesting buzz flying around is the prospect of a cheaper model iPhone release at the same time as the iPhone 5. This could help Apple gain a better market slice of the smartphone pie.

The new iOS5 is currently being tested by developers; there are reports of a new feature akin to the Blackberry BBM messenger system.
