Apple is set to hold an iPhone event on Tuesday October 4th, but this weekend Cincinnati Bell, a small regional carrier in Ohio, let slip some interesting information about the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S.
Are these the iPhone 5 Specs?
Surely not because we are waiting for Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, to announce the new iPhone on October 4th at the company’s headquarters in California. We expect at least one new iPhone, but we may actually get two unique devices on Tuesday. If the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S are announced by Apple, we expect a release date of mid October on Sprint, AT&T and Verizon and a very similar date in the UK and Europe.
Apple is also expected to announce the iOS5 release date. iOS 5 is a new version of the software that powers the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. This new version is rumoured to bring voice control in the form of a new Assistant app, only available on the new iPhone, as well as over 200 new features to the iPhone 5 and older iPhones.
This leak gives us hope that Apple may go even broader with the launch and allow regional carriers that use Verizon, AT&T or Sprint towers to get in on the iPhone 5 game.
Sepculation has ramped up the interest among general consumers, and the announcement will impact the future for Android and Windows Phone 7 design strategy for a longer period. Apple customers are still waiting for a wow! product and Apple has the capability to make fulfill their customers expectations. Beside Tim Cook’s first product launch for Apple will remain a historic moment for his career and Apple’s future in smartphone industry, and will also effect the critics who question Apple existence as a smartphone leader.
