iPhone 5 coming soon in the USA, UK, Germany, France and Japan
One of the stars of 2011, and maybe the brightest, is claimed to be the iPhone 5. Some rumors says that the sales for this iOS device will start on October 14th in the UK, US, Germany and France. Another lucky country is Japan, which is also included on the list of initial rollout.
These rumors have different sources, one of these being the Japanese site Macotakara which claims the arrival of the iPhone 5 in several stores from these 5 countries, and another rumor which confirms the arrival comes from Orange France CEO Stephane Richard, who hinted at a potential iPhone 5 debut in the carrier’s stores on October 15th. Another solid rumor comes from the Cupertino giant, that gives a little hint about an opening purchase on the 14th and 15th of the next month.
To give a better impression about how the iPhone 5 will be welcomed by the customers, a study was made by the mobile ad network InMobi, and the result reveals that about 41 percent of North American mobile phone owners are planning to purchase one of the Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5. Also, the study provides some information that indicates that about 52 percent of BlackBerry owners and 27 percent of Android users, would chose the iPhone 5 as their next device, and let’s not forget about the current iPhone owners, where it’s estimated that 51 percent are expected to make the leap for the iPhone 5.
iPhone 5 will support 21Mbps HSPA+ data networks, and here we can mention that T-Mobile and AT&T both offer 21Mbps HSPA+ connectivity in the United States, and it packs an 8-megapixel camera, in a thinner and lighter aluminum unibody design and a larger display.
