Apple iPhone 5 To Reach Best Buy on October 21st!
Recently an image has leaked from the Best Buy store which shows the Apple fixture installation scheduled for October 21st for the possible iPhone 5 release, according to TIMN. This launch date is certainly in line with some of the rumors that we’ve covered in our earlier reports.
To be clear, this isn’t a run-of-the-mill installation for the big box – our tipster tells us that the request that a manager be on-hand at 6AM is out of the ordinary (they usually show up at 7AM for inventory), and that a similar arrangement was scheduled for the iPhone 4 launch. While it seems strange that thousands of retail employees could potentially be clued into iPhone availability over six weeks in advance, the language in Best Buy’s system is sufficiently vague so that it could technically be anything. It’s just hard to ignore the correlation to the mid-October rumors, particularly when the Wall Street Journal’s throwing its weight behind them.
Best Buy reportedly has a meeting scheduled on October 10th to “discuss upcoming iPhone 5 release dates.” So pack your bags and get ready for the day….
Stay Tuned we’ll keep you posted…
