You know the new iPhone 5 is near when the Wall Street Journal starts to report about it.

The report is based on information from people familiar with the situation. According to the report the new iPhone 5 ships in the 3rd quarter of 2011.

According to person from the supply chain, Apple has placed an order for 25 million iPhone 5 units. This is a word. I hope that number is true. It should keep the iPhone 5 in stock for the first 24 hours.
If the new iPhone 5 is using a dual-mode wireless baseband chip is still not clear. The WSJ article did not mention that the iPhone 5 will use the new A5 CPU, but I guess we can take that as granted.
