Did Apple Just Accidentally Reveal iPhone 5 Name?
Technology Editor, CNBC.com
Apple has apparently slipped-up and revealed the name of it's latest iPhone, the iPhone 5, via an inactive link that was posted on its website before Apple's highly anticipated event Wednesday, according to a report.
CNET is reporting that Apple accidentally posted an inactive link to their website with a web address that reads “Apple-Introduces-iPhone-5,” indicating that the new phone will be revealed later today and that it will in fact be called the iPhone 5.
The company also seems to have also revealed that the new iPhone 5 will include LTE (Long-Term Evolution, the standard for 4G) connectivity. When the words "iPhone LTE" were searched on Apple's website, another inactive link appeared that shows a page on LTE.
It's been rumored for some time that the new iphone would be called the iPhone 5 and that it would have 4G LTE connectivity, so the news isn't groundbreaking. But there will no doubt be other surprises coming out of the Apple event today that will begin at 1:00 P.M. ET.
