The second week of September, that is a week to be excited about. Well we wouldnt get too excited because this is still, as you might of guessed, just a rumour. A recent article in the China Times is claiming that we can expect to see the release of the iPhone 5 in September.
The China Times doesnt exactly have a flawless track record with these release dates but they do have connections with the suppliers of the components for the iPhone so it is a possibilty someone could have leaked some information to them.
A trial run of 400,000 units is being cooked up as we speak (apparently) although it wont be enough to meet the intial orders that are in the 4,000,000 mark.
The article not only mentioned the iPhone 5 but also the next apple tablet, the iPad 3. Supposedly (i swear these papers just make these things up to get readers) the iPad 3 release date has been postponed and is now penned in for a Late November/Thanksgiving release.
It makes sense to release the iPad 3 around the holiday season, its just plain business sense. Release something in the period when people are buying gifts for one another. So the Thanksgiving iPad 3 release date is a good possibilty. For some reason though, i have a gut feeling that we wont see the iPad 3 till next year, dont ask me why or how, its just a feeling.
