As we get get closer to the Oct 4th announcement,there will be News, and Pictures, and Box art, and Lines forming, and just all kinds of iPhone 5 News, and we will keep you as up to date as possible!!! Hit the Jump!
Let’s start with the obvious, just in case you hadn’t heard Al Gore, ex VP, whom sits on Apple’s Board, briefly mentioned that Apple has New iPhone’s, emphasis on Phone’s as in multiple, so the Rumor of the 5, and the 4S have started circulating heavy
Then it goes into a kinda Bad spin(for us at least) about how there really isn’t the 5 we were expecting, you know, the tear dropped shaped, wider screen, thinner iPhone we were expecting. Apparently there are manufacturing issues and allegedly there are 2 variants of the 4S coming, and neither look much different than the current iPhone 4, matter of fact they are saying the ‘lost’ iPhone may have looked just like the 4, so the person that has it wouldn’t really know it was different, the only diff is the 8MP camera, and the A5 chip buried deep with in!
“It appears that the tear-drop shaped iPhone 5 with larger screen and thinner, rounder body is seeing continued design and production delays, at least on one assembly line (Apple has multiple production sources â€“ Pegatron, Foxconn, etc). We therefore think that iPhone 5 will be delayed slightly at the very least and may see shortages all the way into 2012.“
And it seems that sprint is NO help in trying to figure this out, Apple has most likely sworn them to secrecy, and they are staying as tight lipped as possible after the leak that that would even have an iPhone, CEO Dan Hesse had this to say:
“If we get itâ€“ifâ€“we may have to adjust our guidance for that“
Thanks Dan -_-
On top of all that, this guy Scott Sutherland of Wedbush Securities, which I take it deals in stock trading made some statements about the 4S, and said a 4G iPhone would be coming in 2012, and people are starting to say THAT is the iPhone 5 -_-
Are we all in for a hugh disappointment?? Will we be good with an iPhone 4S, same shape and size when we were looking for a redesign??? Yes it’s exciting to know a 4G iPhone could be coming, but for us to wait until June 2012, will Apple slow in growth it needs in order to Stay #1??? OR is this all last minute marketing to make people excited about the 5?? I mean since the iPhone was pushed back from June to oct, all of the Web has been focused on the 5, and if they put it out when people expect it coming, where is the surprise excitement that Apple enjoys so much, there would be excitement in the street about a NEW product, but since we knew it was coming we wouldn’t be shocked, and That’s what Apple usually aims for, and Tim Cook’s 1st real time out as CEO, I’m sure he wants that “Jobs” effect for himself, but we won’t really know until Oct 4th
Last piece of news is Fortune put out a Clean graph on how long it usually takes Apple to actually put out a device after it is announced, so we can guess on when the NEW iPhone(whatever the model may be) could hit the street, I’m gonna say somewhere between Oct 12th-15th, look at the graph and tell us your guess!!!
