  • Leaked Internal Best Buy Memos Reveal Details About iPhone 5 Launch, Sprint


    Last week Sprint sent out an internal memo to their employees informing them not to speculate on whether the company would start carrying the iPhone 5 this fall when asked by curious customers. BGR got their mitts on a Best Buy internal memo that confirms what everyone gleaned from the Sprint memo leaked last week: Sprint is going to be carrying the iPhone 5 come October.

    The leaked memo, pictured above, doesn't give any product details or specifications, but is extremely blunt in what it is talking about.

    BBYM: iPhone 5 product introduction expected, pre-sales begin for expected October week 1 launch/ Sprint launches iPhone 5.... (Apple product introduction/Launch dates subject to change)
    Whether or not Best Buy is right, or if they're simply basing their expectations on the same rumors we've been privy to over the last few weeks is not known. But, the fact remains a major retailer is expecting Apple to launch a product soon, and anticipates being able to take pre-orders as early as next week according to BGR's tipster.

    Also, a Best Buy "Apple Fixture" instillation order slated for Friday, October 21 fits the Wall Street Journal's claims that the iPhone 5 would see a mid to late October launch. Best Buy had orders placed for similar structures in advance of the iPhone 4's launch last year. These are not simple installations either, and are usually signals of new product launches or a major push by the retailer to sell products that are expected to be extremely popular. More and more information is being leaked each week, and if Apple wants to capitalize on the element of surprise and avoid and iPhone 4 early-reveal fiasco like last year, the company should make some sort of move this week while the iron is piping hot.

      Sprint is for people who have no credit.

      The 7th? You think they'll announce it tomorrow? Shouldn't we have learned about a press event by now? (Has a press even been announced and I missed it?)

      Nice sweeping generalization there.
