Even before the official announcement was made, Japan’s Apple website displayed on their front page, confirmation that there will DEFINITELY be an iPhone 4S that will be released. With the help of Google translator, the date will be October 14th, 2011!
It’s only minutes till the official announcement in California starts so this will be a quick post as I don’t want to miss it!
Here’s the translation from the page:
iPhone 4S, appeared.
October 14, from 8:00 am to launch the Apple Store. To help you choose the carrier and rate plan is right for you. staff because it sets the iPhone, and is ready to start using before leaving the store. Learn more
There you have it. Could this mean that new larger device is not going to be named the iPhone 5 after all?! We’ll see in a few minutes.
EDIT: The Japan Apple Website has now removed the reference to the iPhone 4S. Tsk tsk. Should be back again very soon though after the official announcement has been made.
