iPhone 5 might be available on October 21 in Best Buy stores, according to latest rumors
According to a Best Buy insider who provided This is my next with some spicy information and a photo to back it up, there may be something pretty significant happening in Best Buy stores on October 21. Apparently, an “Apple fixture” is to be installed in at least one Best Buy location, which is a clue hinting at a possible iPhone 5 release on that very same day.

Sure, there might not be a whole lot of evidence in the leaked photo, but the tipster clarified that the procedure described in the document is somewhat similar to the one, which preceded the launch of the iPhone 4 last year. Besides that, the presence of a manager on the site is not something that is usually required for something as seemingly simple as a fixture installment. Furthermore, it was pointed out that a manager is to report as early as 6 in the morning on that day when reportedly, they show up about an hour later to do inventory.

Still, we will not blame you if you remain skeptical about the alleged iPhone 5 release date as we hear speculations trying to predict it every day. On the other hand, a mid-October launch for the smartphone seems pretty likely as the latest iPhone 5 rumors hint that pre-orders of the device are to begin in the first week of October. Further details will become official as soon as the iPhone 5 gets unveiled at the Apple media event, invitations to which are expected to reach their respective recipients within the following weeks.

First I am. Sure it will launch around that time. Even though I have heard rumors from a friend at an I phone repair shop who has an insid into a girl that's a manager at an att store that the special hours and event planed for October have been canceled due to part shortage from the tsunami. But I really don't think that is true. I believe apple is to resourceful for that. Though a limited release could be kinda like the iPad 2
