iPhone 5 announcement TODAY?

“Let’s talk iPhone.” said the simple email tag attached to the press invite scheduled by Apple on 4th October, 20111.

Apple fans can’t wait no more. Today we may see the unveiling of the most anticipated phone in history – iPhone 5.

The word out there is that Apple will be introducing the game changing feature dubbed Assistant – voice control for your iPhone 5. And hence the invitation tag – “Let’s talk iPhone”.

For now we wait with bated breath for the official announcement from Apple so as to put an end to all the rumours and speculations once and for all.

iPhone 5 Release Date – 15th October?

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.

Looking for iPhone 5?

An Apple employee lost an iPhone 5 prototype in a bar in San Francisco.

Déjà vu? You are not mistaken, well this happened last year too. An iPhone test device went missing on the eve of its expected launch, and soon enough everybody was talking about Apple’s next big thing. Apple’s brilliant marketing strategy at work again.

So if you were looking for a pre-release version of the iPhone 5 simply pop over to a bar in San Francisco. There’s sure to be a prototype lying around somewhere.

Waiting for the iPhone 5 release date?

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.
