Apple site confirms iPhone 5 name (and LTE support) prior to announcement
It turns out the search tool on Apple's site is very good. So good, in fact, that it has found what the name of the upcoming new iPhone is going to be. And the new iPhone is going to be called... iPhone 5! Amazing? Well, not really, but at least it's not iPhone 5 4G LTE (4.0) or something.

The search goof was first found by 9to5Mac, who, we guess, are currently hitting the F5 button of their browsers every 10 seconds. Anyways, the search result has actually found the 'iPhone 5' name as part of a link to the announcement press release, which currently leads nowhere.

Additionally, using the same hi-tech method, 9to5Mac has also found evidence of the new iPod touch and iPod nano, but again, no other information is currently available. We only know that they are coming!

Well, so much for the 'new iPhone' theory, for now at least. The best thing is that all will be come clear in just a few hours. Stay tuned to PhoneArena, as we'll have a lot of interesting coverage for you!

UPDATE:
Using the same method, it was also confirmed that the new iPhone 5 will feature LTE. Of course, the page itself is still unavailable, but at least we now know that it's only a matter of hours until it's officially official. Check it out here.

Apple fans let the droiders do all the commenting. We just enjoy using a great device.

It would be ground breaking when iPhone would be banned by Samsung or Google in one or other way instantly after release. :D

More like earth-shattering, 'cause the lawsuit would have to have been filed when there was no official word about the device, Further, the trial would have had toave been held, jury decision reached against Apple, and the judge would have issued a sales ban order. The only way this could happen is if it happened in a parallel universe that was slightly out of sync with the universe we are in. And when the two universes came into contact with each other, the earth shattered (matter-anti-matter thang).... Sounds like a story line for a movie, eh? Maybe an indie release using iMovie?

I guess people complained about the change in the naming of the iPad (from iPad# to New iPad), and so the iPhone# convention was retained.

Que in HTC and SAMSUNG time for the useless apple to get banned. Yes being late to the 4G party years later means that you can pay a price. Piss on Apple and it's users...

If Steve were still alive, you would get a shout-out from him at the announcement. Unfortunately Timmy isn't into that kind of esoterica.
