September 5 iPhone 5 release date leaked by Swisscom exec

A senior executive from Swisscom said that the hotly anticipated iPhone 5 release date in the United States will be on September 5th 2011, followed by a worldwide launched on October 5th.

Tech website iPhone Italia reports that according to a “very reliable source,” Swisscom is preparing for an October 5th iPhone 5 release date, and will be having units of the phone by then. Mobile carrier Swisscom, who sold iPhones in the past, said that iPhone 5 sales will begin on October 5th.

An unnamed senior executive from Swisscom said that the provider said, “the iPhone will be launched in September 5th, only to be launched in all states only in October. The manager says he is 100 percent sure of the above, because Apple would have already contacted the main mobile operators to agree on how to distribute the iPhone 5.”

Swisscom, along with other mobile carriers Orange and Sunrise, is Apple’s partners in Switzerland. The carriers currently offer Apple smartphones, including the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4.

Some reports online say that the company will be launching the iPhone 5 in the United States first because of supply restraints. Last March, Apple faced a problem of low iPad 2 stocks because of the tablet’s high demand. The company is said to avoid this problem by releasing the new iPhone 5 worldwide a month after its initial U.S. release.
