iPhone 5 to Launch in New Zealand on October 9th?

New Zealand's TechDay.co.nz claims to have exclusive date on the New Zealand launch date for the iPhone 5.
Now, with fans clamouring for news of the iPhone 5, Techday has learned from a source within Apple that the device will be launched here in New Zealand on October 9.
Early October has been the recent rumor consensus on when the iPhone 5 might actually become available to customers. There has also been talk of a late September launch.

TechDay.co.nz hasn't been the source of any previous Apple rumors, so we can't tell if they are trustworthy. October 9th falls on a Sunday, which seems a strange launch day. Last year's iPhone 4 launch was on a Friday in New Zealand. We've posted it on our iOS blog for interest.

Even if that's not true all the rumors seem to point to an early october launch.

Umm, from memory the iPhone 3 was released there first (because of its position on the international date line)


No, they always release it in the big markets first (US, UK, France & Germany). Others follow weeks after

Sunday makes sense. When launching on Fridays, Vodafone screws up the launch and it doesn't happen until Monday. By launching on a Sunday, Vodafone can only mess it up by one day! :p

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, in NZ will care two hoots about iPhones, iPads and iGeeks in Sept/Oct. We will all be watching the RWC!
