Apple is Working on iPhone 5 Secretly?

The day before we did a whole Rumor Round up and what to expect from iPhone 5. Below is the latest handwriting from an Apple analyst over the next iteration of the device, from Brian White at Ticonderoga Securities:

iPad 2 Ramps and Apple Keeping iPhone 5 Cards Close to the Vest. The success of the iPad 2 launch is clear given the continued serial stock-outs, and one of our contacts believes iPad unit sales could reach up to 40 million in CY11. Regarding the iPhone, we are increasingly becoming suspicious around continued reports of a delayed iPhone 5 launch into September/October versus the typical June/July time frame. Although we do not have a smoking gun that definitively rules out a delayed autumn unveiling or one that supports a launch this summer, there is a pattern of activity in motion within the supply chain that makes us question a delayed launch. Essentially, we believe Apple is keeping its iPhone 5 cards extra close to the vest on this launch to avoid a falloff in iPhone 4 demand ahead of a refresh, especially given the February launch of the CDMA iPhone 4 with Verizon.

The launch for the iPhone 5 is kept secret because Apple doesn’t wants to loose the Market of the iPhone 4 which is made up of stainless steel band. Like the demand for AT&T iPhone 4 were dropped when Verizon iPhone 4 was out. Till now the whole Rumors about iPhone 5 are not confirmed. Some say the release will be in fall and some say the release will be in Summer. So what do you think about the release. Even Apple is helding an event at WWDC conference happening this year. They might reveal their.
