A Japanese site going by the name of Kodawarisan says that Apple will be holding a media event as soon as September 7th — that’s less than a month away…
September has been the month for new iPod announcements for the past three years, and with iOS 5 slated for a release in the same month, this particular rumor does indeed make sense. Possible iPhone 5 release dates have ranged from late September to mid October, which again fits in well with an early September announcement.
According to MacRumors, Kodawarisan has had good success in the past, with the Japanese site successfully predicting the launch of a new Mac Mini back in 2009.
We at iDownloadBlog have very little experience with the Japanese site, so even with the numbers adding up, we’re willing to take this with a sizeable pinch of salt.
