Well this is certainly interesting, Deutsche Telekom (DT) has begun taking pre-orders for the so-called “iPhone 5,” the next generation of Apple’s immensely popular smartphone. Here’s the odd part according to a spokesman for the carrier they “have barely more information than we do.” A spokesman for the carrier confirmed to Bloomberg that it’s taking pre-orders as of today. Deutsche Telekom is concerned with supply shortages, and wants to help its customers secure one of the little guys.
DT admits that it does not now when the iPhone will be released, what it will be called, we think the most likely choice will be iPhone 5, but who knows, what the features will be and so on. DT adds that:
Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE) will allow customers to reserve the next generation of Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s iPhone as of today in anticipation of supply bottlenecks for the device, spokesman Alexander von Schmettow said by phone. The operator will hand out coupons to people who expressly request the successor model to the iPhone 4, without providing the name or release details of the device.
