Although Deutsche Telekom (DT) does not know the release date or price of the new upcoming iPhone, they have started taking pre-orders as of today any way.
DT is apparently concerned about supply bottlenecks when the new phone is launched. Customers that pre-order the device will be given a coupon when the device goes for sale. The system is first-come, first-serve and one ticket is allowed per customer.
The new phone is expected to launch in October.
