  • Rumor: AT&T Rep Denies Summer iPhone 5 Release


    Since 2007, Apple has pegged summertime as the right time to introduce a new iPhone model - a predictable pattern that, until recently, was expected to continue in 2011. Unfortunately for eager next-gen iPhone buyers, it now appears from a variety of sources and mounting evidence that this long-held tradition will at last be broken this summer.

    On Wednesday, reports surfaced that an unnamed AT&T representative alleged that Apple has notified the carrier that there will be no iPhone 5 release in either June or July of this year. Although calls placed to AT&T in a variety of departments today did not yield confirmation to me of the same information, it could very well be the case that some AT&T reps are more privy to sensitive information than others. Either that, or the assertion is simply based on simple misunderstandings or falsehoods.

    "Apple has informed us that they do not plan to release the iPhone in the June to July timeframe, though there will be a newer version in the future," the initial report from MacRumors presented. "Unfortunately, we have not been given a release time for the new phone. We will release this information on our website when it is available to us."

    As we've discovered via low-level employee leaks from the likes of Best Buy and Toys R Us, it isn't out of the question that this report could be rooted in truth. But perhaps the greatest evidence we maintain that Apple isn't rolling out the iPhone 5 until fall is that the company's annual Worldwide Developer Conference in June is being promoted as a software-focused event. If that's the case, don't expect to see the iPhone 5 on stage at San Francisco's Moscone West. That event could very well end with a rendition of "see you September" playing over the auditorium's speakers.

I now have a $10 Samsung flip until I can get my hands on a white i4. Sold out here in Tyler Texas....
      You probably had problems and hated it because you, like the last guy, had a samsung device. All android users know that they are the worst of the worst. And you may think android is android, but its not. Samsung and many other manufacturers customize the filesystem and make it crappy and they make people think its android's fault. Its not. Its the manufacturer's fault. And samsung is known for laggy filesystems. Try a HTC. Or better yet, A PURE GOOGLE phone. Like the nexus S. They are good. Or you could have flashed a clean ROM.

      Yep. I heard that from one of my Android friends. He said HTC was legit. He said that Samsung's TouchWhiz was the problem. So, my best friend (the one that went from i4 to Android with me) got rid of his Galaxy S and got the HTC Inspire. I, (Skeptical and unwilling to pay one cent for a new Android device) loaded a "vanilla" version of Eclair and then a "vanilla" Froyo. Yeah, well both were garbage. And as for the HTC? Well, it has DECENT hardware, but unfortunatly, still runs Android. Guess what it did? Force close, force close, lag, force close. Oh and it also had a 4 hour battery. What can HTC's hardware do for the Facebook app? It's coding is TRASH. HTC can't fix that. How about Android randomly opening and running apps in the background, hogging RAM, causing lag and force closing, EVEN with apps like Process Manager? (I shouldn't have to constantly close apps all day to keep my phone from crashing) How about Angry Birds running like sh*t? Well, that's because the dev "copy/pasted" the iOS coding into a converter. I'm terribly sorry, sir, but simply getting a HTC will not fix the fundamental problems tat Android has.
