Despite not presenting any hard facts or details related to the actual device - product specs, release date, etc. - on Monday, Deutsche Telekom began taking preorders for Apple's iPhone 5.
According to a confirmation by the German carrier, the primary reason Deutsche Telekom is embarking on what some are calling a "blindfolded preorder" endeavor is because of heightened product supply concerns that are already plaguing the carrier ahead of the 5th gen-iPhone's launch. spokesman Alexander von Schmettow did not reveal any other information or concerns to the press.
The operator will hand out coupons to people who expressly request the successor model to the iPhone 4, without providing the name or release details of the device, he said.
As of this writing, all signs point to an imminent iPhone 5 introduction or unveiling by Apple with the actual product arrival/delivery not anticipated until at least the first week of October.
