Please keep breathing.
Yes, it's late, but there will be doctors on call shortly.
For here is an iPhone 5 rumor that is so pulsatingly titillating that it might affect your ability to intake victuals.
The Dutch blog iphonenieuwsblog.nl has published a picture of what may (or may not) be printing for iPhone 5 packaging.
Please don your oxygen mask at this moment.
The packaging shows a picture of a very iPhone-looking iPhone 5. However, it's not called the iPhone 5. It's merely called "the new iPhone."
I am grateful to TechCrunch for coming across this momentous image and tossing it into the wider firmament.
Some might recall that when the iPad 3 launched, it wasn't called the iPad 3. It was merely given the moniker "the new iPad."
What a lovely tease it would be if the iPhone 5 veered along a similar road less traveled and was called "the new iPhone."
This tease would have been made ever more lovelier by the fact thatclearly showed the number 5 in shadow. (See below.)
I have often admired Apple's Department of Disinformation --.
I feel sure that this image -- with its posed, yet documentary casualness -- is yet another Department of Information hoax. Unless it isn't, of course. Unless it's the Dutch blog's hoax. Unless it isn't that, either.
