iPhone 5 is coming!

While there have been numerous speculations and rumors about Apple’s iPhone 5 for months now, it’s only today that we’re getting something more local and close to home.

At least one of the editors of a Philippine newspaper is getting an early look at the upcoming iPhone 5.

I can’t categorically reveal the name and newspaper for fear that it would get them into trouble with Apple. Besides, there’s an NDA to be signed. You know Apple is super-strict about these kinds of stuff.

The review unit cannot be published nor shared or revealed publicly within the two-week period before it is announced. That should give us an idea that Apple will officially announce the iPhone 5 in 2 or 3 weeks time.

In a related news, Deutsche Telekom in Germany has actually confirmed pre-orders for the yet-to-be announced iPhone 5.

BGR also leaked a document from Best Buy outlining product introduction of the iPhone 5 with pre-order starting 1st week of October.

We all know Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal and David Pogue of the New York Times also get iPhone review units a week or two before they are announced/released.

So here’s the likely scenario — iPhone 5 announcement later this September with launch and release from Globe Telecom by October.

    Will it be better than the present, or will just be different in appearance.

    Well, it must have been that dude from one of the leading broadsheets who have gotten first dibs with the Apple gadget before. If one will just take time to look back, he was one of the first owners of an iPad 1, iPhone 4, and iPad 2 here in the Philippines. A certain E-I-C of ** if I’m not mistaken…

    ayan na si iphone 5! i heard it can capture 3D videos without a need to convert it… parang LG Optimus 3D

    .sabi nila the new iPhone 5 will have a dual core processor. I don’t think that the iOS5 will utilize the dual core to its optimum ability. sayang lang ung dual core.

    -malamang si art samaniego yan ng manila bulletin (Tech News). Tama ba?

  13. Tech84 says:

    Surely the price of the iPhone 4 iis expected to come way down when Apple releases the iPhone 5

  14. Ryan says:

    Iphone will never loose the global limelight because apple comes first when it comes in fashion and technology before other. with a solid iOS and application, I am still an apple solid user… cheers!!! to iphone5…

    • walayan says:

      Tell me of any innovation that apple release it first in the market be before the others? Apple is the best company in copying others! just polish the feature here and there and claim and brag about it.

    hndi nman cguro lahat makakabili ng iphone dahil wala ng stock kapag may bagong labas na iphone ang apple kaya hindi lahat magkakaroon…

  17. parenghilton says:

    yehey.. makakabili na rin ako ng 2nd hand na iPhone 4 na mura.

  18. Andy Smith says:

    Ayos to! I wonder how this phone would look like.

  19. insider says:

    haha…i hope this gizmo doesn’t create any unnecesarry and over-exaggerated hypes…

  20. I think iPhone 5 is going to rock the market. I am all waiting with wide expectations.

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any tips? Appreciate it!
