A brand new day brings in brand new sets of iPhone 5 release date rumours. And this time the iPhone 5 release date slip up came from Stephane Richards, CEO of France Telecom.
“If we believe what we have been told, the iPhone 5 will be released on 15 October”, Stéphane Richard told the French media.
Since Apple products are always released first in the U.S., the release date of 7th October lines up very nicely with previous release date rumours. And this means a November release of the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S for Australia.
The wait is almost over. Well almost.

iPhone 5, So where the bloody hell are you?
Well, you are not alone.
The iPhone 5 (or the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5 mini or the iPhone 4 8GB) is easily the most awaited phone of the year and for good reasons. The new addition to the iPhone family is expected to sport a host of new improvements, including an A5 dual-core processor, a larger screen, an 8-megapixel camera, full HD video recording and a new slim design. There are others out there who are suggesting that the new iPhone will be a hotted up iPhone 4 or even just a cheaper more affordable iPhone 4 with an 8GB flash-drive.
At present all the iPhone-5-release-date-rumours point to 7th of October, 2011. And the latest piece of news is that Sprint has scheduled a “Strategy presentation” event for the media members on October 7 simply adding more fuel to the rumours that the iPhone 5 could be coming any time soon.
Apple, of course, hasn’t even confirmed the existence of a next generation iPhone. All eyes are on Tim Cook, the new CEO of Apple Inc. Hopefully he won’t disappoint us all as we eagerly await the iPhone 5.
Until then all we can say is, “iPhone 5, So where the bloody hell are you?”
UPDATES: iPhone4S announced, iPhone5 not yet.

Apple iPhone 5 mock-up
The wait is almost over. So you can now stop contemplating whether to wait for the iPhone 5 or buy the iPhone 5 alternatives:
Samsung Galaxy S2
Sony Ericsson Arc
But quite frankly, other mobile phones will always be alternatives because there is only one Apple and there will be only one iPhone 5.
Now you can sit back and take it easy as the iPhone 5 is finally coming to a store near you.
P.S.: Steve Jobs still needs to make the official announcement. Watch this space.
Updates: iPhone4S announced. Check out the latest on the iPhone4S.
The rumours don’t seem to end and the speculation continues to grow about the release date of Apple’s next generation iPhone 5 or as dubbed by some as the ‘World Phone’.
And the latest word out there is that the iPhone 5 will either be launched on 7th October or 14th October in the U.S. and plans to offer pre-orders starting on September 29th or 30th.
And the release date for the iPhone 5 in Australia? I guess we will have to wait a little longer as usual.
