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.
I hope this week Apple announce the date for the september keynote.
September 14th maybe? The sooner the better
Of course, because we are so used to being ripped off by other companies preselling inferior products. However, history has shown over and over again that the specs will be better than the current version, the interface will be “more magical” and all in all the experience will be an improvement over the current one.

Buying something without knowing the specs or every seeing it is just stupid. Shows the IQ of some Apple users…
I want one immediately, I will be very disappointed if they sell out and it turns into an affair like the iPad 2 where you must wait 8 weeks for a delivery…
Unfortunately reservations are only available at Deutsche Telekom in Germany, not EU-wide.
