Chinese made Apple iPhone 5 cases multiply like rabbits

While M.I.C. Gadgets reports that cases for the iPhone 5 are everywhere in China, web site Alibaba.com is offering them for 31 U.S. cents per unit with a minimum order of 500 units. The cases being offered on the site are similar to the ones being produced from the leaked schematic design. One possible contradiction is that the cases show the camera on the back in the same location as the flash. Back in May, we told you that camera and flash parts allegedly from the Apple iPhone 5 revealed that both the lens and the flash would be apart from each other.
Over the last year, we have found leaked images of cases helpful in breaking stories on the launch of the Verizon variant of the Apple iPhone 4 and the Apple iPad 2. Some of the information might have come from Foxconn employees, 3 of whom were arrested for allegedly passing on info on the iPad 2. A Chinese court sentenced two employees and one manager from the plant to prison. Each were paid more than $3000 USD to pass along digital images of the Apple iPad 2 in advance of an official announcement.

They are a lot larger than the iPod touch. Everyone who keeps calling them iPod touch case obviously hasn't read past the title of the article.

if the iphone5 is launched without LTE or dual core. then their will be absolutely no reason for a iphone 5 one button wonder phone release...unless they add features that android had since day one......

It will be launched with dual core almost certainly. LTE is a toss up though. Why don't you just wait for the announcement before you start criticizing? Let's try to keep Android to a minimum here. We've had enough fanboy wars
