    Former U.S. Vice President and current Apple board member Al Gore has stated that the new iPhone is coming out next month. We can't be sure at this time, however, if the comment was accidental or intentional as it supposedly came from Gore's speech at the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit in South Africa, according to The Next Web

    If you count the number of leaks we've now had regarding the iPhone 5's release next month, the number is now pretty compelling - although Gore may want a recount just to confirm their accuracy.

    We’ve been informed by Toby Shapshak, the editor of Stuff Magazine in South Africa that is attending the conference, that his quote was specifically: “Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug.”
    Nonetheless, the man who said he invented the Internet mentioned not one, but two new iPhones next month. He did so, however, indirectly by mentioning "new iPhones" as opposed to a new iPhone. The current rumor mill suggests that Apple will hold a media event on October 4th to finally unveil its next-generation iPhone.

    If you're unfamiliar, the former Vice President has been a member of the Apple Board of Directors for more than eight years. Through it all, Gore has seen the launch of the original iPhone that sparked a smartphone revolution that will take another massive step forward in a matter of weeks when the 5th generation iPhone is officially released.

    it could be taken out of context... he might of said the new iPhones coming out as in , "The new iPhone is coming out" instead of the plural version of iPhones.

    He didn't really invent the internet, he viewed it and said that it should be opened up for public use. The internet USED to belong to the armed forces.

    It was done at a University (forgot which).
    Hate Al Gore... Happy that he got fat and ugly.
    Preach about being green, yet he flies everywhere on private jets.
    Sure he pays his "carbon offset", but he is paying to a company he owns......

    Considering the whole anthropogenic global warming propaganda movement, I now find myself doubting that the iPhone 5 will drop in October, or at all for that matter.

    Al-Gored... He got fat stuffing himself all that crap about carbon. He wants us to pay him for the air we exhale. Al Gore's mindset: "Hell, people pay for water? Why not make them pay to breath !!" How about planting trees to take in all that carbon we exhale! Building all those idevices in suicide worker plants will surely help cool the earth... What ever happened to Al-Ninio ?? And Al-Ninia ??

    Lol. I was thinking the same thing. Just imagine if he won office. There would only be weather apps on the iPhone and a countdown timer that was set to his global warming cycle. Of course the weather apps would falsely report the temp to support his cause. Funny to see all the scientist resign over lying and twisting stats to support the gore cause. Just hope he was guessing with the I5 because if not the release surely won't be next month.
