Al Gore Says New iPhones Coming In October

Just in case you’re looking for a more reliable source for information about the release date of Apple’s next iPhone, former vice president Al Gore has weighed in. “Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug,” Gore said yesterday. He should know. In addition to having invented the Internet, he’s a member of Apple’s board.

In reporting on Gore’s comments, made in a speech in South Africa, CNet sounds a note of caution for those who assume the comment refers to the iPhone 5: “Gore, however, could have been referring to the various iterations of new iPhone, which can differ on color or memory size. He didn’t specify beyond his single comment on the iPhone.” Their words, not Al’s.
