China Times: iPhone 5 Launching Second Week of September
Regardless of whether the information coming from the rumor mill is correct, one thing is always certain - the rumors fly most furiously in the immediate weeks and days before an Apple product launch. That said, given the flurry of iPhone 5 news and rumors we've heard in just the last 72 hours, it's obvious that the next generation iPhone isn't too far from our reach.
Late Wednesday, a report from the Chinese-based publication China Times indicated that Apple's internal plans for the iPhone 5 launch place the device on a path for release somewhere between September 6th and September 15th - roughly the second week of the month. As you are well aware, speculation about a mid-September iPhone 5 unveiling has persisted for months.
According to information presented in the report out of China, Apple will only have four million units in its first order to accommodate early adopters - a situation that could create an iPhone 5 supply crunch ahead of the holiday shopping season. Similarly, "component issues" have slowed progress on plans for the 3rd generation iPad, which no longer appears poised for a late 2011 release.
When you take into consideration the recent information leaks at AT&T, suspicious Apple hiring plans for late summer, purported iPhone 5 cases turning up online, and now the latest Apple news out of China, it's pretty clear that our long wait for the 5th generation iPhone is almost over.

I really hope it looks like the pic here. I personally miss the rounded back. It makes sense to look like that. It matches the iPad and MacBook Pro look. Even the iMac.
I've got 2 lines upgrade eligible since May. Thought maybe I'd hit June launch. Not so much. Come on release! At least show it to us Apple! I'm sick and tired of your Mission Impossible crap!iPhone 4S iOS 5.0 Non JB

I just really don't need a complete update on the phone. The iPhone 4 is amazing. They could have waited 2 years and I wouldn't change it up.

the IP5 better have a substantial amount of upgrades otherwise I'm just going to buy the IP4. Right now I'm still using the first gen iphone so for me it's going to be quite a leap in upgrade, that is if I purchase the IP5.

but curious where that pic came from? cause i thought apple was gunna keep the flat glass back?
Ive heard its gunna be called the iPhone 4s just an iPhone 4 but better like they did with the 3g to 3gs but who knows
personally i like the flat back cause i took my Apple brand off and put on a nice blue back on the phone, cost was about $10 when the apple one is $40 if u break it and you get a different look to all the other iphones out there

iPhone5 aka 4(S) doesn't seem to sport n e new Tech other then a fast processor, possibly a larger screen+ a 8MP Cam, I'll wait till the TRUE iPhone5 comes out next year. When people ask what iPhone is that..i'll respond by saying it's NOT..the 3G iPhone..lol

Pretty stoked. According to the leaked case designs, I believe it will have a curved back like the concept photo above ^. I would really appreciate a new design... I got my wife the 4 and I really dont like how the hard edges feel in my had compared to my curved 3gs. Dont get me wrong, its a beautiful piece of hardware, just not very comfortable. Not to mention when it's in your pocket it is hard to tell which is the front and which is the back because of the glass on both sides. I think either way, Im going to get the 5 or (4s) or whatever because my 3gs is SOOO slow. I've only installed what I think is the absolute necessary cydia packages, ive deleted daemons, cleaned up excess languages and it is still frustratingly slow. Fingers crossed for a dual-core A5!!

Ooph, only 4 million units? I hope that's enough. Apple got 600,000 preorders for the iPhone 4, and that doesn't count AT&T, I don't think.
Now we have Verizon in the mix, too. This is going to be crazy.

lol. All these people that are prematurely "stoked" and don't even know for sure what features this phone will have.
This could be the greatest phone ever....or a big letdown. Save your excitement for when you actually know something about this phone besides a potential release date.
