iPhone 5 dropping October 15th, says network exec

The iPhone 5 is landing in Europe in mid-October, a mover and shaker from Orange has disclosed, adding another mooted launch date to the ever-growing list.

In a Q&A with broadcaster BFM TV, Orange CEO Stéphane Richard revealed he had been told to expect the iPhone 5 to launch on Saturday October 15th - apparently marking a move away from Apple's previous policy of setting new kits free on weekdays.

So that’s pretty far from conclusive. And it’s a shame that the interviewer didn’t press him for a source of the info. However, given that Richard helms a company that’s been Apple’s long-term partner in La Belle France, we’re much more inclined to trust his gen than the welter of overheard remarks from shadowy insiders that fuel the online rumour mill.

Unfortunately, Richard was even less forthcoming on specifications. But speculation suggests we’re in for a kit with an eight-megapixel camera, the same A5 dual core processor that stars in the iPad 2 and a four-inch screen – up from iPhone 4’s 3.5-inch number.
