iPhone 5 arrival imminent, as Sprint cancels holiday

One of the largest carriers in the US has barred staff from taking holidays early next month, adding heft to suggestions the fifth-gen Apple smartie is landing in October.

According to a leaked memo, brought to the world’s attention by Apple Insider, an internal memo between Sprint employees serves notice that workers will be barred from taking some R&R from September 30th to October 15th on account of “the possibility of a major phone launch”.

Natch, there’s no specific mention of what that “major phone” might be. And it’s true that Apple isn’t the only phone-maker with a big kit that’s coming to market soon.

However, it’s doubtful that any of the other handsets due (Google Nexus Prime and Samsung Galaxy 3D included) would merit a holiday blackout on that scale.

News of matters down Cupertino-way comes as Vodafone UK appeared to leak some specs for the year’s most wanted handset over the weekend.

Assuming the network’s gen is correct, the iPhone 5 will come in 16GB and 32GB flavours – marking a move away from Apple’s long-established policy of doubling maximum storage capacity with each iPhone refresh.

Voda also apparently inadvertently revealed that the handset will be available in black and white colour options from launch.
