That was quick.  Our friends over at Velti have already pulled metrics to analyze the costs associated with upgrading to the iPhone 5 — both for consumers and developers — and even produced the infographic below.  And no, we’re not just talking about the basic cost of upgrading to the latest iteration.

“With its new size and features, the iPhone 5 can end up costing a lot more than the surface price of the phone itself,” the company said.

Consider these stats; replacing accessories can cost upwards of $400 for consumers, building for a different screen size causes a 15% increase in time for developers, and building for higher resolution causes a 12% increase in time for developers, according to Velti research.
