Sony boss spilled the beans on iPhone 5

Written by Nick Farell

Jobs's mob will be furious
The ultra-secret cargo-cult, Apple will be furious that information related to its iPhone 5 phone was actually leaked to the world by Sony CEO Howard Stringer. Stringer accidently said his outfit will be supplying image sensors for Apple's iPhone 5 during an interview about earthquake damage to 15 of the Sony's factories in Japan.

He said that the sensor, which was going to be made for Apple will be a bit late because of the  quake and tsunami. The only problem was that the tech industry did not know who was making the gear for Apple. The Fruity cargo-cult has non-disclosure agreements which are so tough that it would be impossible for you leak anything for the next trillion years without incuring the wrath of a Job's Mob laywer.

Stringer didn't specifically say that Sony is building an 8-megapixel image sensor that will go into the iPhone 5, however Sony is not manufacturing any image sensors for Apple and the iPhone 5 is the only product available. Apple currently uses OmniVision 5-megapixel image sensors in the iPhone 4. However its 8-megapixel sensor won't be ready for the iPhone 5's rumored US mid-summer launch.

Stringer's inadvertent slip also lends credence to the rumours of a delayed release of the iPhone 5.

I don't think Apple will be that angry. Apple has still protected the design and prototypes so no one knows what it (iphone 5) really looks like. The main problem for Apple would be too much of a delay for the iphone 5 when competing against Android based phones which are showing better features and hardware

This was 'news' on April 2nd when it was first posted by tipb.com, it's now April 4th, and you were even beaten to the punch by a coworker @ Fudzilla.

Embarrassing.
