    Default RBC Estimates Put iPhone 5 Release Back in September


    It's October. It's September. No, it's October. Now, it's September again.

    The debate about when the iPhone 5 will finally be released has sparked numerous and routinely conflicting reports from industry insiders, each of whom professes to be on the inside track of Apple's release plans.

    Following reports last week (and others as recent as yesterday) saying the next-gen handset is at least two months away, investment bankers and analysts with RBC Capital Markets have derived from "build data" coming out of Apple's Far East suppliers that the fifth generation iPhone will more than likely be released in September as initially - and widely - rumored earlier this year.

    RBC analyst Mike Abramsky said today that he takes with a grain of salt any report indicating that October will usher in the iPhone 5's arrival. Instead, Abramsky thinks a September launch is more likely given three factors that he sees as evidence backing up his suspicion.

    In addition to the aforementioned build data coming out of the far east, Abramsky is a firm believer in the vacation blackout dates supposedly scheduled for AT&T retail employees next month. What's more, Abramsky argues that Apple executives have hinted at a September roll out themselves, most recently on Apple's last quarterly earnings call.

    Abramsky interprets Apple Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer's claims that Apple will see a "major product transition to begin the end of September" as the ultimate give-away that the iPhone 5 will turn up next month, not in October.

    Meh......if the Rumors of a taller but more narrow screen hold up to, then I no want. Phone will look goofy IMO with a lanky-looking profile.

    I agree. I think that there's a lot of designs like these here:

    But I think that either the top or the silver beveled back one are the most likely for a redesign.

    There are always rumours - My money is still on September 5th - which means it will almost certainly be October....

    I hope they don't drop it at all this year as I'm not even 1 year into my 2 year contract with i4 and I actually still enjoy the i4!

    I'm just gonna stick with an October release and minimal changes. No design change, same size screen, processor bump, probably the camera bump, and iOS5. That's it! Nothing to die for.

    So maybe its a good time to sell my iPhone 4 before the value drops.

    I know this is off topic but can you all help me with this choice? I need to know what MBP is best for me.

    Its September. ATT employees have already received their vacation blackout notifications for that month.

    if the email about the vacation blackout is true i'd believe that as more of a definitive time frame than an 'inside source'
