With Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) announcing its iPhone 5 today, we wouldn’t be surprised if more than a few Wall Street Daily readers were sniffing around in technology blogs this morning – hoping to find new details on the long-awaited device.
You’re not alone. As gadget blogger, Josh Ong, says, “The hype is increasing as Apple’s products become much more mainstream. So, whereas, there was a small, loyal fan base of Mac users originally, now I think with the iPhone [and] iPad, you have millions of people that are being reached that want to know when they can get the next new thing. At the same time, Apple continues to be extremely secretive, and I think that creates a forbidden fruit.”
Of course, the problem is, much of the “news” about the device is based on rumors. And they don’t add up.
Like Reuters’ Jon Gordon says, “It’s easy to get confused… There’s a legion of Apple-obsessed rumor websites out there, with equally obsessed fans who spend hours browsing and commenting on the latest leaks and whispers.”
Well, we don’t have to wait long to see which rumors are right, as Apple’s unveiling the new device at this very moment.
