Even though the release date of this year’s highly anticipated Apple iPhone 5 has yet to be formally announced, pre-orders are currently being taken by the parent company of T-Mobile, Deutsche Telekom.
According to Forbes, “The parent company of T-Mobile is reportedly taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5, despite the fact that Apple has not announced details on the device’s release, price, or even its very existence,” Forbes reports. “Deutsche Telekom has not commented on the reports and is supposedly keeping the pre-ordering process low profile. The carrier is allegedly not taking online reservations and only letting customers pre-order the device in-store.”
The Deutsche Telekom pre-sale is a strong indication that Apple is likely to send out invitations for a press event that will include the introduction and release date of the next iPhone.
Reports currently suggest that the iPhone 5 will be available in stores before November of this year.
