Apple IPhone 5, iPod Touch, iPod Nano: Hands-On Preview (PICTURES)

Apple has unveiled the all-new iPhone 5 - and we've had a first-hand look.

The iPhone 5 features a larger screen, a 4G LTE data connection, an improved camera and a two-tone, aluminium design.

But first thing you'll notice about the new iPhone 5 is that it really is incredibly light and thin - almost unsettlingly so.

As new Apple products tend to do, it makes the previous generation immediately seem clunky and ungainly - next to the iPhone 4S, the 5 is worryingly thin, while still being solid and sturdy to hold.

In our brief test the phone felt very quick and responsive, and the new 3D mapping features worked with no visible lag.

Likewise the new iPod Touch and iPod Nano shocked us by being both incredibly thin and fast.

We were mildly disappointed that the new Nano lost the wonderful watch-like functionality of the previous generation, but the new larger screen looked stunning.

Take a look at the pictures, below - we'll have a fuller write-up and review soon.
