Former U.S. Vice President and current Apple board member Al Gore has stated that the new iPhone is coming out next month. We can't be sure at this time, however, if the comment was accidental or intentional as it supposedly came from Gore's speech at the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit in South Africa, according to The Next Web
If you count the number of leaks we've now had regarding the iPhone 5's release next month, the number is now pretty compelling - although Gore may want a recount just to confirm their accuracy.
We’ve been informed by Toby Shapshak, the editor of Stuff Magazine in South Africa that is attending the conference, that his quote was specifically: “Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug.”
If you're unfamiliar, the former Vice President has been a member of the Apple Board of Directors for more than eight years. Through it all, Gore has seen the launch of the original iPhone that sparked a smartphone revolution that will take another massive step forward in a matter of weeks when the 5th generation iPhone is officially released.
