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.

Are these the new Apple iPhone 5 specs?

iPhone 5?

Apple in Australia might have accidentally disclosed the design and the specifications of the upcoming iPhone 5.

How?

Well Apple recently filed a patent application (application no. 2011203145) with AusPat for a handheld computing device which seems to suggest the latest offering from the iPhone family which is rumored to be released on 7th October, 2011.

The abstract disclosure of the patent application says:

“A minimum Z height handheld electronic device and methods of assembly is described. The electronic device includes a single seamless housing having a front opening and a cover disposed within the front opening and attached to the seamless housing without a bezel.”

Here is the link to the AusPat patent application no. 2011203145.

Tell us what you think. Is this the real deal? Is this the new iPhone 5 that Australia might have stumbled upon?
