iPhone 5 Reservations Available Now in EU, Pre-Orders Coming Soon to USA?
Hinting at an impending release of iPhone 5 and anticipating significant demand, Deutsche Telekom has begun to offer reservations for EU customers who are interested in purchasing the next-gen iPhone, whenever it is released.
Bloomberg confirmed that Deutsche Telekom will hand out coupons starting today to reserve the iPhone 5, but didn’t provide any further release details on availability. Deutsche Telekom is Europes largest cellular carrier, and their USA subsidiary is T-Mobile, which has also been rumored to carry the next-gen iPhone.
The news out of Europe comes a day after a report from BGR claims that US retailer Best Buy anticipates taking iPhone 5 pre-orders soon for a launch in the first week of October. This may correspond with the original pre-order reports for the expected iPhone 5 launch sometime in October.
