According to CNET, a report out of Korea is saying that the head of Foxconn's human resources department has indicated that Apple has placed an order for the manufacture of the iPhone 5 and that it will come out around October. Foxconn is, of course, the major manufacturer of Apple's gadgets, and one would think that the head of human resources would be privy to what's going on. Still, consider it a rumor. And it conflicts with a rumor last week a Foxconn recruiter said that the new iPhone was coming in June.
