Rumor re-check still puts iPhone 5 in October

updated 12:25 am EDT, Sat August 13, 2011

iPhone 5 still pegged for October

An unusually vociferous response Friday insisted that the iPhone 5 would ship in October. Digging back to "several sources" led to being told that Apple's latest would miss September. The AllThingsD clue lacked a specific unveiling date, but earlier claims it wouldn't be September 7 were purportedly accurate.

Why it would wait so late isn't apparent other than possibly wanting a long time to polish iOS 5 or else a surprise hardware feature. Some rumors have still put the ship date in September, such as Pegatron production plans and carrier data plan promos that have been routinely tied to iPhone launches. These have room to slip, however, and shipping in September could see Apple stockpile the iPhones until October.

Others have supported Apple waiting until October, such as a China Telecom deal that would expand Apple's Chinese distribution for the first time.

Individual components should still be the same as predicted, including the dual-core A5 processor, eight-megapixel back camera, and a Qualcomm dual-mode chipset that would let Apple serve both GSM and CDMA iPhone buyers with one phone. Many things are still up in the air, such as whether the iPhone 5 will have a larger screen, the prospect of 64GB of storage, and whether it's a conservative shape or a genuine redesign.

    The Kara Swisher thing ...

    .. is really weird. Seth Weintraub over at 9to5Mac wrote a whole article that has pretty much no other content than an attempt to smear her as some kind of uber-b**** with a long list of offensive comments about her and the fact that she is "female." I thought we were beyond that sort of sexist trash, but then Seth is known to be a particularly selfish, unkind sort of fellow. It's funny how in this day and age, a male tech blogger can post stuff about people inserting things into their anal cavities and it's just considered "edgy," but when a female journalist (with much better credentials in fact), gets slightly upset, we get whole articles about her being "bitchy" and comments ascribing it to her "time of the month."
