I no longer read up on Apple news, and this news doesn’t affect me at all – but I am really confident that the iPhone 5 is going to be announced momentarily.

Why do I have this feeling (aside from the fact that iPhones get released every October)? Well I was browsing on DealExtreme earlier this month and saw iPhone5 cases being sold – some of them were already sold out! While it is a Chinese outlet, DX is fairly reliable, so if they’re selling cases then I expect it will work with the real iPhone5. If they’re selling out then places like the PacMall shops are stocking up just in time for the new iPhone announcement (well 4 weeks in advance since shipments take forever to arrive). Book it!!
