There are a ton of rumors circulating about the pre-order and launch date of the highly anticipated iPhone 5. Have you heard the latest?

Originally, industry insiders claimed that the iPhone 5 would be launched on September 7th. Today is September 8th, so clearly that information was incorrect!

What insiders are saying now is that Apple will most likely be taking pre-orders for the new iPhone 5 starting September 30th, with an official launch date scheduled for October 7th.

What insiders are also saying is that the iPhone 5 will be heading to AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and Sprint. This leads to the possibility that the iPhone 5 will most likely be a 3G device, not the expected 4G.

An official product announcement from Apple is expected to come on or around September 24th.
