    1. Mid October for me, my fellow October-born, or is it Octoberian?

      I’m glad an AT&T VP (hope MDN/WP now allows the & symbol) has leaked something before a Verizon counterpart, for a change.

  1. Yeh right. A VP tells a couple of mere employees this, in a private conversation. “Hey Joe, Bill, since we’re such good buddies let me tell you something….”

  2. if your boss told you to prepare your staff to be busy the next 35 to 50 days, does that mean you can give your staff time-off the next 34 days? The quote was – in the next 35 to 50 days.

    My take, the iPhone 5 releae is imminent and can happen within the next fifteen days and that sales will be brisk for at least a month after that.

  3. My take is they get the first sales by the end of September to bring sales numbers up to speed, then the rest of the millions ‘trickle in’ through December… So, September 20-something release or presale.

  4. This jives with yesterday’s story about Apple reducing the orders for iPhone 4 units. It’s not because of slower sales, it’s because iPhone 5 is coming. Woot!
