It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… the iPhone 5’s UK release date has fiiinally been confirmed! The iPhone 5 will be released in the UK on October 21. Rejoice!
And who do we have to thank for this world exclusive information? Why a customer service rep who works for O2. Quite how this low-ranking peon came to know the iPhone 5’s release date before anyone else is a mystery, but let’s take it as gospel anyway, yay!
Know Your Mobile credits a tipster who spoke to the O2 customer service rep on the blower. I wonder if the headset jockey is Steve Jobs’ nephew or something. That’d make sense, working in the mobile industry ‘n’ all.
Or maybe the rep is going by this story, in which it’s suggested that Best Buy stores in the US will be installing iPhone 5 displays on the morning of – wait for it – October 21.
Funnily enough, the O2 rep was unable to shed any light on specifications or pricing.
Big D is literally choking on salt right now. I better go save him.
