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

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
