An AT&T vice president has apparently confirmed to some employees that the iPhone 5 is set for an early October release and told their managers to prepare employees for a really, really busy iPhone 5 launch. iPhone 5 rumored to have a larger edge to edge screen, support 4g network, have a large touch sensitive home button, a better camera that shoots HD video, a Dual LED flash, more storage, NFC for mobile payments, a faster A5 processor and a new panoramic camera mode……………..
Earlier, AT&T sources appears to confirm that the iPhone 5 will be announced officially by Apple in September with its subsequent release in early October and now the Vice President of AT&T, who recently made the move to acquire T-Mobile to become America’s foremost telecom network is reported to have warned senior staff members to sufficiently prepare teams in anticipation for a “really, really busy next 35-50 days” as it prepares for the release of the iPhone 5. Although not set in stone, the general consensus indicates October 7 as the launch date with Apple taking pre-orders a week in advance from September 30. There have been many suggestions for the reason behind this, although it’s strongly suspected that Apple could be about to move the goalposts on rivals by bringing out a cheaper unit of an iPhone to compete price-wise. Such a device would comprise of a modestly-upgraded iPhone 4, which would be cheap to produce and could be sold at a more workable $400 price range. iPhone 5 is almost certain that there will be a larger screen, and the home button could also undergo some augmentation. As you would expect, the device will be thinner and lighter than the current iPhone 4 and maybe finished in a similar manner to the 2nd-gen iPad. The iPhone 4 brought forth that great Retina Display, a sturdy and more polished design, and a faster and smoother iOS experience. Add to that, a 5 megapixel camera which although on paper doesn’t exactly set the world alight, has become the camera of choice for many amateur photographers. Apple will be hoping that after an extended preparation timeframe that the launch and release goes ahead without some of the hiccups which burdened it last time around.
