Rumor: Best Buy preparing for Oct. launch of Apple’s iPhone 5 กันยายน 5, 2011

A pair of new reports claim retailer Best Buy is preparing for an October launch of Apple’s next-generation iPhone, though they conflict on potential launch dates.

A leaked document from the retailer provided to Boy Genius Report suggests that the iPhone will launch the first week of October. The note to employees also claims that Sprint will offer Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone at launch, aligning with a recent rumor that it would become the third carrier in the U.S. to offer the iPhone.

The memo suggests that pre-sales for the new iPhone could begin soon, with an “expected” launch in the first week of October. However, the note also cautions that launch dates are “subject to change.”

Separately, This is my next also reported on Sunday that Best Buy is scheduled to have an “Apple fixture” installed at its retail stores on Friday, Oct. 21, a few weeks after the memo implies the next iPhone will launch.

“To be clear, this isn’t a run-of-the-mill installation for the big box — our tipster tells us that the request that a manager be on-hand at 6AM is out of the ordinary (they usually show up at 7AM for inventory), and that a similar arrangement was scheduled for the iPhone 4 launch,” the report said.

It also added that Best Buy Mobile managers are scheduled to have a meeting to discuss release dates for major new products.

Both reports come on the heels of a rumor from Japan which claims that two manufacturers have begun assembling the so-called “iPhone 5.” Foxconn is said to be responsible for 85 percent of the assembly, while Pegatron has a 15 percent share.

That report suggested that the next iPhone will arrive by early October in the U.S., with other territories to follow.

AppleInsider reported in August that Apple’s long-time advertising agency TBWA/Chiat Day has begun work on a television spots for the smartphone, which will reportedly finish up in early October. Several other reports have also pointed to an October release.

The next iPhone is expected to sport the same A5 processor found in the iPad 2, as well as a new high-resolution 8-megapixel camera. Some third party cases have suggested the device will be thinner with curved sides and a flat back.

Apple’s iCloud runs on Microsoft’s Azure and Amazon’s cloud

Apple’s iCloud runs on two services from its biggest competitors, Microsoft’s Azure and Amazon’s elastic cloud, reports The Register.

Sources tell the site that both Microsoft and Amazon were instructed to remain mum on the iCloud deal. Amazon’s elastic cloud is already established as a go-to service for any company that wants to offload data and other resources, but the deal serves as a major validation for Microsoft’s Windows Azure.

Writes The Register: “iCloud puts Azure into a different league, given the brand love for Apple and the Apple management’s fanatical attitude to perfection. It is a “huge consumer brand, a great opportunity to get Azure under a very visible workload,” our sources told us.”

Apple is likely aiming to avoid potential iCloud outages by selecting two cloud suppliers. The company has already had the headache of dealing with outages for its MobileMe service, which relied on a single external provider. Apple is also building its own massive data center in North Carolina, which could eventually take over some of the load for iCloud.

The Register notes that iCloud is thought to be running on Microsoft’s full Azure service, which includes the Azure compute and controller features, as well as its SQL storage. Data on iCloud is being striped across both Amazon and Microsoft’s services, a process which allows iCloud to speed up data access since it doesn’t have to rely on a single disk or service. To accomplish this, Apple, perhaps together with Microsoft and Amazon, has come up with some sort of solution for easily identifying and accessing data across both services.

 

Apple forces Samsung to remove Galaxy Tab 7.7 from IFA floor

It looks like Apple’s preliminary injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Germany has come back to haunt the Korean manufacturer, as it has apparently been forced to remove all references to its new Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet from the IFA show floor in Berlin, reports FOSS Patents.

While the tablet was on display yesterday, it was labeled with a “Not for sale in Germany” sticker, which was a reference to Apple’s injunction. Samsung likely hoped that sticker was enough to show off the tablet at IFA, since it will be available in other European countries. Clearly, it wasn’t enough.

Samsung has also removed all mention of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 from its German website.

The company hasn’t yet clarified why it’s making this last-ditch effort to remove all trace of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, but the implication is clear. A German Samsung representative said that she couldn’t speak about ongoing legal matters when asked if Apple had anything to do with the device’s removal.

FOSS Patent’s Florian Mueller notes that there are two possible reasons for the tablet’s removal: Either Apple obtained a new preliminary injunction against it, or Apple complained to the German court that granted its initial preliminary injunction, arguing that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 closely resembled the Tab 10.1.

The gadget blog This is My Next posted before and after pictures of Samsung’s booth, which you can see here.

Samsung said earlier this week that it has no plans to bring the Tab 7.7 and its Galaxy Note to the US.

I suspect we’ll learn the full facts behind this case within the next few days. For now, it seems like yet another win for Apple against its ongoing battle with Android makers.

10 things to love about the story of the iPhone 5 that walked out of a tequila lounge

Another Apple employee loses an iPhone prototype in a bar. I smell a movie script.

The tech press is never happier than when it’s in hot pursuit of the next Apple (AAPL) iPhone. Almost any clue will do — a purloined case design, a blurry factory photo, a leaked production estimate from a sketchy Asian news source.

That’s what made last year’s saga of the prototype iPhone 4 — lost in a bar and sold to a Gizmodo editor whose house was raided and his computers seized — so irresistible.

The story of the iPhone 5 that broke this week hasn’t got those kind of legs, but it’s not without its charms.

My favorite details:

 

1. Cava22. The San Francisco tequila lounge where the device was lost serves a mean lime-marinated shrimp ceviche. (CNET)
2. The booze. The owner of the bar told CNET: “I guess I have to make my drinks a little less strong.”
3. Find-My-iPhone. It worked, to a degree. Apple traced the missing device to a two-story house in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood (CNET) that turned out to be in Ingleside (SFWeekly)
4. “Priceless” That’s what Apple gave the San Francisco Police Department as the value of the missing item (CNET)
5. The cops. The cash-strapped SFPD thought the incident of sufficient importance to assign four plainclothes officers to the case. (SFWeekly)
6. The search. The owner of the house — one Sergio Calderón, 22 — allowed his home to be thoroughly tossed without asking for a search warrant or to see some identification. (SFWeekly)
7. The potted plants.
 The real police waited politely outside while two Apple security guys conducted the search, offered Calderón a $300 reward, made vague threats about illegal aliens, and left a business card that could be traced back to Apple (SFWeekly)
8. The hard guy
. The LinkedIn page (since removed) of Anthony “Tony” Colon — the Apple detective who led the search — listed his specialties as threat assessment, counter terrorism, executive protection and site security surveys. (SF Weekly)
9. The subterfuge. The SFPD was able to keep the department out of the story — at least for a few hours — by telling the press that it had no report any search or even of a missing device. (Business Insider)
10. Call central casting. The name of the police lieutenant who finally owned up to the SFPD’s role in the matter — admitting that at Apple’s request no crime report was filed — was Troy Dangerfield. (SFWeekly)

You couldn’t make this stuff up.

And what happened to the missing iPhone? Is it still at large? Did Tony Colon manage to track it down? Apple, not surprisingly, isn’t saying.

Here’s the Tipster exact words:

I hear we didn’t hire Comex for his skills, but to ensure that he won’t reveal embarrassing exploits anymore.

Well, Comex did indeed embarrassed Apple. He is the first to Release untethered jailbreak for iPad called Spirit, Then he released JailbreakMe 2.0 aka Star the first iPhone 4 jailbreak, Followed by JailbreakMe 3.0 The first iPad 2 jailbreak.

So Do you think Apple is hiring the jailbreak community leaders to prevent finding more exploits or to make them find the exploits so they can patch them.
