Doesn't seem that odd to me - have you seen the size of the lightning connector? Imagine the complaints Apple and other accessory makers would get when folks snap off the connectors when docking and undocking their phones. Apple knowingly killed the whole concept of a dock with lightning.
I'm looking forward to receiving my 5 in the mail tomorrow although a friend has done a good job convincing me to switch from ATT to VZW so now I'm wondering whether to deal with the pain of switching. I have a 4g VZE ipad but quickly realized I don't regularly need 4g on the ipad so I turned it off. If I switch to VZW with their new shared plan it would only be $10 a month to add the ipad to my data plan.
For me the biggest shame with the iphone 5 is that Apple wasn't able to shoehorn a bigger screen in same form factor. The new motorola razr m fits a 4.3" screen in almost exactly the same form factor (iphone 5 is 2.31x4.87x.30 inches, razr m is 2.39x4.82x.33).
