4G/LTE: Swisscom is excited about the the new iPhone 5 announcement, a smartphone that will support 4G/LTE. Swisscom will launch Switzerland’s first 4G/LTE network in Switzerland in December 2012. For the moment, we do not yet know when it will be possible to use the iPhone 5 on Swisscom’s 4G/LTE network. The device will need to be tested by both Apple and Swisscom on our 4G/LTE network to ensure the best possible user experience.
Nearly ALL iOS 6 features (yes, this means local Siri intergration and turn by turn directions). Notable exeptions however, include: 3D Buildings for maps, Siri Restaurant Reservations,  Siri Movie Reviews, Siri Movie Showtimes and  iTunes TV Shows (To check what features are available in your country, visit Apple.com’s Feature list broken down by country)
