    I hope you are sitting down for this one: the Vice President of AT&T has affirmed an early October launch for iPhone 5. Oh wait, report after report has been mentioning that for months. At this point, it sounds like we have a timeframe set in stone.

    A few lucky employees had been told about the October release by the Vice President. Apparently one of those may not have been tight-lipped enough.

    Of course, all segments of AT&T will be busier over the coming weeks as the new generation of the carriers most popular phone is released. Thus a couple managers have also been relayed the following message by the V.P., Expect things to get really, really busy in the next 35-50 days, so prepare your teams accordingly.

    We have no doubt that sources will continue to reiterate the release date week-after-week until iPhone 5 is officially announced. Balls in your court, Apple. Once it starts rolling we can stop speculating about the shiny new phone and speculate about iPhone 6 instead.

    Among the upgrades expected for the new iPhone are faster hardware and a new design (the image featured on the top left of the article is a mock-up of what it may look like). Though no dates have been confirmed, Apple traditionally holds a keynote event in early September to announce key products for the holiday season. Thats not that long of a wait, right?

    Normally I would just say "oh another release report" and forget about it. But this one along with other things I've heard recently I think it's legit... or at least I hope so cause I don't think I can wait much longer!! lol

    Still a rumor IMO. Although very likely to happen by October at the latest.

    I think the new look looks much better than the i4. I mean bigger screen, just an overall better look IMO. Then again those used to the tiny 3.5 inch screen may disagree.

    The only people who know what the new iPhone is going to look like are the people who are testing it now. Until Apple officially announces it, I wouldn't give any of these pics a second look.

    Well, we know pictures have leaked before... But I agree with you cause if they were you would know. Like, I remember with the iphone 4 leaked I hadn't been looking online for the new iphone but I heard about it on the evening news lol

    The iPhone 4 was different, as someone actually did get a hold of the test model and posted pictures of it.

    Yep. Everything out there about the iPhone(next) is pure speculation at this point. Nothing has been announced by Apple, no info has been released by Apple, and nothing substantial has been leaked by anyone. All we've seen are alleged to be miscellaneous "internal parts" leaked by suppliers - but nothing that truly reveals anything about the specs or the look of the next iPhone. Nothing.

    As Rose said, with the iP4, the test device was left at/stolen from/planted at a bar prior to Apple's announcement. Not the case here folks. Speculate away about what it will be/have/look like, but realize that it is ALL speculation, guessing and dreaming at this point.

    I think the reason we haven't seen any leaks with this new iphone is one of 2 reasons. 1. It will be 3g only and apple is worried about people switching to something else or 2. It has lte and they want it to be a big surprise. I am leaning toward #1 but guess we shall see.

    You put way too much importance in LTE...if you honestly think the new iPhone's sales would take a hit if it comes out as a 3G only handset, you're foolish.

    Of course not because the people who want an iphone will get one no matter what. I was talking about those on the fence about it. The ones who want lte and won't get locked into a 2 year contract with a 3g only phone. Those outside of the walled garden see they have a variety of options are the ones I am talking about.

    I'm in the same boat. With the galaxy s2 coming to America very soon LTE might be the deciding factor between the two phones.

    The amount of people who are on the fence based solely on the LTE addition is not something that will hurt ANY phones sales, much less the iPhone's.

    As far as your walled garden comment...i use an Evo 4G as a work phone, and wouldn't have it over even a 3GS (as a personal phone), i see all the options out there. For some reason you mistake preference for lack of knowledge on the other phones on the market...your redundant attempts at insults are yawn inducing.

    Not to mention the slew of other phones coming with lte. But according to people on here lte doesn't matter. Use it once and then say it doesn't make a difference.

    Maybe if you could read you wouldn't make such comments. I never said you since clearly you aren't on the fence about it. Nobody was trying to insult you so get off your high horse maybe if you comprehended the comment I said you would not have made the comment you did.

    I must have missed something I forgot that sprint has lte.....Oh wait they don't. Like I said use lte and then you would notice a difference. Wimax doesn't compare to lte. But like I said you never used it so you wouldn't know.
