Apple Expected to Announce iPhone 5 on October 4


New Apple CEO Tim Cook will have his first big public showing in about two weeks at a planned media event thought to be the debut of the iPhone 5. Although details about the next generation phone are scarce, as are impressions of Cook’s stage presence, anticipation is already running high for the post-Steve Jobs era. The phone will likely be available a few weeks after the announcement, so the Apple Store line starts now. [AllThingsD]
