A recent fluctuation in betting odds has suggested that the Apple iPhone 5 could have a September release date and come with a curved screen. The bookmakers sent us an email last week and has since confirmed with us that significant betting has meant they have slashed the odds of the iPhone 5 coming out in September 2011.
Paddy Power explained that prior to this erratic amount of ‘betting activity’ odds for September were set at 9/2, since then they have been changed to 9/4 which is still pretty decent odds.
Ken Roberton, a technology betting expert explained “While little was disclosed about iPhone 5 during last week’s iCloud launch[during Apple’s WWDC keynote], our customers seem to be reading between the lines and now seem certain that a Fall launch is on the cards for Apple.”
The likelihood that the iPhone 5 will come with a curved screen, similar to the HTC Sensation has also caused subtle changes at Paddy Power. Before the WWDC keynote odds were set at 6/4 but after these changed to 4/5 which in betting terms makes it a certainty – I wonder where these people are getting their info from?
These changes just go to show people really can’t wait for the Apple iPhone 5 release date, their betting habits have probably been influenced by the iOS release date which has been announced to for autumn 2011. Many feel that the iPhone 5 will either come out before this event (September) or alongside iOS 5 later in the ‘Fall’.
Have you been tempted to put some money on the iPhone 5 release date and are you eagerly waiting for it?
