New iPhone could indeed be called that, hints Best Buy Mobile stores case shipper

UPDATE: The Dutch T-Mobile also starts today's press release about its sixth generation iPhone launch coverage tomorrow with the title "The new iPhone is coming..."
Asked why the new iPad was called that, instead of something in the realm of iPad 3, as everyone was expecting, Apple's Phil Schiller answered "because we don't want to be predictable".
He might have been joking, of course, but we were sent a snapshot of a case shipper headed to Best Buy Mobile stores, which clearly indicates "Cases for The New iPhone" above the logo. Our tipster also mentioned the effective days were listed as 9/18-10/27 there.
If the shot is legit, it hints that Apple might be employing the same marketing scheme for the sixth generation iPhone name, as it did for the third generation iPad, and simply call its bread-and-butter device "The New iPhone". Now what will it call the 6th-gen next year, when the "even newer iPhone" is released, is anyone's guess.
Thanks for the tip!

I had a feeling the naming structure would go this way. I don't know how long ago I made the comment on here, but it has been a while. Although, for a lot of people, it was pretty obvious they would go that route.

so predictable after releasing "the new iPad" the iDevices will might be base on "The New" family but basically its not new! just small improvements.. then there will be "the new iPod touch" "The New iPod shuffle" etc! and i already know that for months.. "the New iPhone" so predictable!
