Production of the next iPhone to start in July or August, sales in September
Three sources "familiar with the matter", have confirmed that Apple's suppliers will begin shipping parts for the next iPhone to manufacturers in July, and the handset will be ready to hit shelves in September.

That coincides well with what we've heard so far from analysts and component suppliers. One of the people has clarified for Reuters that the new phone will have a faster processor, and in overall design will stay true to the iPhone 4, but we've already heard that numerous times, haven't we?

Hon Hai Precision Industry, which is the manufacturing arm of Foxconn Technology Group, will start receiving the first shells, screens and camera modules for assembly in July or August. Apple is holding its traditional media event in September, so that might be the spot where the next iPhone will appear officially for the first time, if the sources are correct.

Nah. The only 'real' news about Apple products comes from Apple.

I assume Apple is taking its time in the right ways. They need to survey the Android competition coming out in the next few months (e.g., LG Thrill, Evo 3D), meet it and improve on it, and exclude gimmicky features (3D). I hope for something revolutionary, but I expect an evolutionary device that improves upon the iPhone 4 just enough to call it a 5. I think both the problem and success of Apple is the fact that they put the blinders on. Apple feels like Apple is their only competitor...just improving on their own features, and not necessarily incorporating trends until it is established.
