The most anticipated smartphone of the year finally has an official unveiling date! Apple will be holding a media event on October 4 (that’s October 5 Philippine time), and it will be hosted by Apple’s CEO Tim Cook. During this exciting occasion, he will make his first big product introduction – the iPhone 5. It is rumored that the iPhone 5 will be available in stores several weeks after the announcement, putting its launch date near the end of October and just in time for the holidays. The burning question on many people’s mind is if Apple founder Steve Jobs will attend the event, but we can only speculate about his presence until the event itself starts.
