The blogosphere has been speculating on the release of the iPhone 5 for some time now, and its generally accepted that we can expect something ’round about September/October time.
BGR reports that one of its ‘high-level’ contacts at AT&T, the US mobile phone network, has told them that the company’s VP has confirmed to a handful of staff that the iPhone’s next incarnation will indeed launch in early October.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
We wrote earlier this month that the iPhone 5 was reportedly being delivered to carriers for testing, so this news direct from a major carrier would certainly make sense.
Furthermore, the VP apparently notified a group of managers that things were about to get pretty hectic. The source said:
“Expect things to get really, really busy in the next 35-50 days, so prepare your teams accordingly.”
So…the iPhone 5 to be announced some time in late September for an early October release? Don’t bet your house on it, but it is looking increasingly likely.
