The iPhone 5 is apparently going to launch in early October according to a Senior Management individual within AT&T (via BGR). Apparently, an AT&T Vice President has mustered the troops within the company and was quoted as saying “Expect things to get really, really busy in the next 35-50 days, so prepare your teams accordingly”. The information regarding the launch date apparently came from a high level AT&T source.
The release window is obviously consistent with previous reports that the new iPhone 5 would be expected to launch in October this year. The time period stated puts the ‘busy period’ in the last week of September and first couple of weeks in October.
At this point, this pretty much grabs on to the coattails and reiterates every other ‘confirmed’ iPhone 5 release schedule. Keep an eye out for some rumblings with AT&T retail staff soon.
Oh, and Jim wasn’t sighing
