Real estate pros have mixed reactions to iPhone 5

New operating system features Facebook integration

It’s thinner, lighter and larger than any version yet, but first reactions to Apple’s iPhone 5 — the latest iteration of the company’s signature iPhone smartphone — have been mixed.

Matt Case, a broker with Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors in Benzonia, Mich., says the new iPhone’s longer battery life, which Apple says allows for up to eight hours of Web browsing, and its svelte design — 20 percent lighter and 18 percent thinner than its predecessor, the iPhone 4S — will likely spur him to give up his Thunderbolt, an Android phone from HTC.
