Best Buy USA poised to start iPhone 5 pre-orders this week
Best Buy USA is reportedly poised to start taking pre-orders for Apple’s iPhone 5 as early as this week, according to new reports from technology website Boy Genius Report (BGR).
The BGR website claimed that a leaked document from a Best Buy source has revealed that the highly-anticipated iPhone 5 is expected to launch in the first week of October and that network carrier Sprint will offer it from launch.
However, the Best Buy document also notes the release date is subject to change.
These new reports conflicts with the earlier rumours that Best Buy would be launching the smartphone on 21 October.
Technology blog ThisIsMyNext claimed that Best Buy is expecting a new ‘Apple Fixture Installation’ on 21 October.
