El Cinco coming in September, White Whale this month

Latest Apple gadget roundup for people who obsess over such things. The white iPhone, originally hunted by an obsessed Captain Ahab on the high seas, will be coming in the next week or two, before the end of the month. This according to Bloomberg, citing anonymous sources.

Meanwhile, we’re now hearing a fall launch for El Cinco, also known as the iPhone 5.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster (one of the more obscure members of the Munster family, never made an appearance on the show) says Verizon has high hopes for that one after being somewhat let down from the original Verizon iPhone launch.
