The iPhone 5 is near. Can you smell it? I could actually already reserve one at my carrier in Germany. Now reports from Taiwan come in saying that Foxconn is already very busy making iPhone 5 devices. Digitimes reports that Foxconn is producing already 150,000 iPhone 5 units per day.
The shipments of iPhone 5 phones are expected to reach 5 to 6 million in September to Apple. In the fourth quarter the iPhone 5 production is expected go over 22 million.
Despite a ton of rumors there is not really a clear picture available yet on what the iPhone 5 will be about. Will it have a new design? Will it look the same as an iPhone 4? Will it have a 8MP camera or just a 5MP one? Will the iPhone 5 have a larger screen? Will it be a world phone with CDMA and GSM support? Several iPhone 5 rumors over the last months have been pointing in opposite directions. I actually like the suspense until the last minute. The iPhone 4 unveiling was not fun last year after the iPhone 4 prototype got lost in a bar. The same thing seemed to almost happened again with the iPhone 5.

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.
