Apple Insider reports Apple's iPhone 5 is expected to enter production by mid to late August. Consumers can expect the device about a month later.
Apple will begin production of fifth-generation iPhones in August ahead of a projected late third quarter launch, according to intelligence obtained by by one investment banker's recent trip to Taiwan .
After meetings with unnamed individuals in Taiwan last week where Apple's supply chain and manufacturing facilities reside, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty issued a note to clients in which she confidently stated: "Apple’s next iPhone will begin production in mid to late August and ramp aggressively" into the calendar fourth quarter.
She added that, based on her intelligence, the new handset will launch and be available to consumers sometime near the end of the third calendar quarter of the year, which ends September.

No 4G ability and around half a dozen 4G competitor phones will be out before this hits the market. Too slow on both fronts, speed and release.
That's the real reason Apple is suing. It's a delaying action because it's so slow getting the Iphone 5 to market. Too bad the judge can't see right through that kind of thing.
