Several mobile tech industry watchers claimed the new iPhone 5 will debut in mid-October 2011. Most tech news cited an early post by allthingsd.com where the popular Wall Street Journal blogger wrote “it’s going to be an October surprise.”
Choosing October as the month in which Steve Jobs is going to take stage and unveil the next generation iPhone 5 is really making sense. October is the month where Apple quarterly earnings will start. Seasonal shopping for holiday usually started in October and hit top sales during the week after Thanks Giving holiday. Also, the next generation iOS 5 is set for release in October or sooner.
As iPhone 5 is soon to be released to phone subscribers, one of the top mobile phone carriers in America, AT&T has asked all its employees to stay working and all vacations requests will be denied during the last two week of September. The two weeks slots are now set for iPhone sales training purposes.
Thru sources from suppliers, vendors, and phone accessories, tech watchers indicate that the new iPhone will be powered with faster A5 processor which is similar to iPad 2 brain. From phone accessories sources, the new phone will have a wider touch screen. While from Japanese top camera supplier, the new phone will be equipped with a higher resolution eight-megapixel camera. The new iPhone will also have multi-mode GSM/CDMA which will be powered by Qualcomm.
