New Apple iPhone 5, but when?
Will it or won’t it?
Rumours have been circulating the web for the past couple of days about Apple’s iPhone 5 launch.
Today The Wall Street Journal reports that a Korean technology news site claims the new smartphone will debut this summer – and not, as some reports suggest, later in the year.
“The website, etnews.co.kr, says AAPL (Apple Inc) will hold a special event in June to unveil the device a few weeks before its release, said Ian Sherr of Dow Jones.
“Over the past three years, AAPL has unveiled new iPhones at its World Wide Developer’s Conference held in the early summer, but recent speculation about parts shortages and subsequent production delays have left AAPL watchers expecting a fall debut instead.”
What is pretty certain and bound to cause excitement among smart moviemakers is that the iPhone 5 will come with a Sony 8 megapixel camera.
This could also explain the delay or confusion around the iPhone 5 launch, as the recent catastrophic events in Japan have affected shipment of parts from the Sony factory.
