Case-Mate claims "inside-resources" in saying Apple will launch iPhone 5 and 4S next month

Case-Mate claims "inside-resources" in saying Apple will launch iPhone 5 and 4S next month
On-line case retailer Case-Mate claims to have some inside information on Apple's intentions for the next-gen Apple iPhone launch expected next month. Case-Mate has put up a special page on its web site for the next-gen iPhone where you can fill out a form, asking to be notified when the new line of cases for the Apple iPhone 5 become available.

Case-Mate says that it has "inside-resources" that have given them information on the form factor of the next-gen iPhone and the launch date. So when the word "rumor" is used by Case-Mate, it has more weight than other reports. According to these "inside-resources" the Apple iPhone 5 will have a new form factor, will be wider and thinner than the iPhone 4 with a screen as big as 4 inches and an extended length home button. The next-gen iPhone will feature an 8MP camera, wireless charging and iOS 5 which offers wireless storage capabilities via iCloud. It will be available in black and white in 16GB and 32GB variants.

According to these "inside-resources", Apple will also launch the iPhone 4S which will have the same exact form factor as the current iPhone 4 but will offer an A5 dual-core processor and an 8MP camera, like the iPhone 5. Both the Apple iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S will launch in early October.

Yes, case designers need to get early specs on new phone models so that they can have inventory ready when a phone launches, but there really is nothing that Case-Mate's "inside-resources" has told them that hasn't already been leaked before. A lot of the speculation makes sense, but we won't know for sure until we see what Apple has up its sleeve, possibly as soon as the end of this month.
