  • Cincinnati Bell's i-Wireless Posts iPhone 5 Placeholder Pages in Online Store



    Cincinnati Bell has an iPhone 5 placeholder up on their website, complete with product specs and a whole lotta speculation. Either Cincinnati Bell is privy to information every other carrier doesn’t have, or they lack some serious common sense or managerial oversight.

    Cincinnati Bell’s pre-paid service i-Wireless (guh) has the above placeholder on their website complete with a price ($639.99), a storage capacity (32GB), screen size (4 inches), and data speeds (4G). It seems that i-Wireless simply has pages up, without pictures, to draw traffic to their site.

    Wait there is more.

    The same site has a placeholder for a $99.99 16GB iPhone 4S with a 3.5” screen, A5 processor, and 5MP camera. Either i-Wireless possesses an i-Psychic or they’re just throwing paint on the wall and hoping something sticks.




    When Tuesday comes and goes I hope against all hope that they are right. But, something tells me these pages are i-Wireless’ attempt to scrounge up a little web traffic.

    And you know what? It’s working.

      If true, a 4 inch screen would be awesome.

      An iPhone with an A5 processor for $99? Hmm, sounds like they're cheaping out on a few components in the original iPhone 4. I bet the 4S has the same inferior Retina Display as the iPod Touch 4th gen. I highly doubt the iPhone 5 will have a different resolution, though, so it should run just as fast as the 4S (but with a gig of RAM, I'm thinking). That'd be pretty cool if the iPhone 5 is $200 on-contract.

      (edit - nevermind, just saw the other article that talks about an 8 gig iPhone - THAT one would definitely skimp on quality parts, but to what degree...)

      Hilarious! Buy why stop at 3 GB? I imagine they'll have a 4 TP camera with a hot-shoe flash soon.

      I think this is defiantly a purpose-ful leak. I like how they conveniently didn't have the picture of the iPhone 5.

      You guys do realize that just because your own attempts to navigate to said webpage produces nothing doesn't mean that this is fake, right? When a company like this gets a whiff of their mistake they can easily make the URL no longer accessible to the public. Not saying this is the case, but it's laughable how sure some of you seem to be about the illegitimacy of this information.

      If I was Apple, I'd just up the screen to 4.5" and make the resolution 4x higher again to keep the 300ppi+ statement.
