On Monday, the Wall Street Journal's "All Things Digital" put a blockade between Apple fans and the longstanding rumor that the iPhone 5 will drop in September. According to the very reliable John Paczkowski, we're all in for "an October surprise." Paczkowski believes the tenth month on the calendar will bring with it the launch of Apple's next-gen iPhone.
Sources with knowledge of the situation say reports claiming AT&T has blacked out employee vacations during the last two weeks of September in preparation for the retail debut of the next iPhone are misinformed.
If you're wondering, despite earlier reports hinting at a significant re-design of the iPhone in the next-gen model, the source conferring with All Things Digital "offered no details" on the deviceís design. Still, virtually all analysts and supply chain insiders maintain that an A5 processor, Qualcomm dual mode GSM/CDMA baseband, and an eight-megapixel camera are all on tap for the refresh.
