New Apple iPhone Expected To Launch In October

Posted Aug 1, 2011

The new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone is expected to launch in October instead of the rumors that it will debut this September. Sources with AllThingsD are reporting that AT&T has blacked out employee vacations during the last two weeks of September to prepare for the retail debut of the iPhone.

?I don?t know why AT&T?s calling for all hands on deck those weeks, but it?s not for an iPhone launch,? said a source that is familiar with Apple?s plans. It is rumored that the new iPhone will use the A5 processor, a Qualcomm dual mode GSM/CDMA baseband, and a higher resolution 8-megapixel rear camera.
