iPhone pre-orders may start September 12th

iPhone pre-orders may start September 12th
More leaks are pointing to the same time-frame for the iPhone 5 launch. We've seen leaks before that said mid-September would have the announcement, and now iMore is saying that pre-orders for Apple's next smartphone will start at the same time, which seems like a logical step that anyone could have made by now. 

According to the report, September 12th will see the announcement and beginning of pre-orders for the iPhone 5, and the device will start its rollout release just 9 days later. The info says that on September 21st at least the US will see the release, if not more major markets, and the other international releases will begin the first week of October, possibly on October 5th.

Of course, we haven't heard anything official from Apple, but all that info seems pretty reasonable, and looks like the window that Apple aimed for with the last iPhone release. The real question is what other devices will be announced, or if it will be an iPhone only affair.

For all we know it could be called "the new iPhone" instead of iPhone 5, just like the iPad.

I'll bet its name will be the new iphone. Why? This new iphone will have a new screen size and retina hd display. Other specs just same with other phones, quad core, 1gb ram, and 8 megapixel camera. Still no memory card slot and non removable battery.

i think apple will call it "The New iPhone", because apple has already used "The New iPhone" name for the iPhone 4S ad, but no one realized it, here's the screenshoot http://uploadgambar.com/images/559untitled.jpg
