iPhone 5 already causing sales rush of previous models
It seems that the rumors from Bloomberg and WSJ along with AllThingsD have got people excited as on EBay’s instant sale website you can now get your hands on an iPhone 3G 8GB for just $50. There are also great offers for the iPhone 4S 16GB with AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, which suggests that everyone with older models wants to get rid of them and be ready to rush out and purchase the latest model on release.
There have been numerous rumored specifications regarding the upcoming handset. These include it being ready for LTE and sporting a display of 4 inches.
