Best Buy is expecting pre-sales of the iPhone 5 to begin in the first week of October, a leaked internal document from the retail giant reveals. In addition, the document says Apple’s eagerly-awaited handset is coming to the Sprint network.
Published by BGR, which has good retail sources, the document says:
BBYM: iPhone 5 product introduction expected, pre-sales begin for expected October week 1 launch/Sprint launches iPhone 5 (Apple product introduction/launch dates subject to change)
The internal document is dated “Week 9/4” and looks genuine. It tallies with earlier rumors of an early-October launch and a Sprint iPhone. Note, the dates are subject to change, as the BB document says, and that BB doesn’t have the exact date — either because Apple hasn’t finalized it, or hasn’t revealed it to BB executives, who can’t keep a secret.
