Confirmation from AT&T that there is no new iPhone 5 this Summer
 

Rumors already point to a September release of the iPhone 5. Now an AT&T rep tells customer that Apple has told them that there is no new iPhone in June or July.

Apple has always released a new iPhone since it released the original iPhone in the June/July time frame. Since a while we hear rumors that this year is different. Apple is seen to release the iPhone 5 in September. MacRumors reports that one of their readers got now confirmation from AT&T that there will be no new iPhone this Summer.

I guess, if I call my carrier now they would say something similar. In any case this is just more evidence that Apple is indeed moving the release schedule for the iPhone 5. It is a bit of a bet as it leaves room for Android to capture more marketing share over the summer. If the iPhone 5 is making a big splash in Fall than the Holiday season could push it to new record sales.

Maybe with the current supply shortages triggered by the Japanese earthquake it is anyway not wise to launch a new iPhone now. We have seen with the iPad 2 that limited supply really hurts sales badly. As reported the iPad 2 sales have been below expectations in the last quarter.
