The CEO of France Telecom, parent company of Orange, has given a pretty clear indication that the iPhone 5 release date is set for mid-October, going as far as giving an actual date when he thinks the iPhone 5 launch will be,
Speaking to French media, the chatty Stéphane Richard (who, lest we forget, is quite happy to wax lyrical on Apple’s plans), said that his network had heard word of Apple’s iPhone 5 coming soon:

So could the iPhone 5 release date really be 15 October?
What is more curious is that date lands on a Saturday – once again making it look like we’ve got misinformation over the iPhone 5 release date, as Apple prefers making everyone skive off work to go and queue up outside its doors to be among the first to get the new device.
Staff at Apple Stores in the UK have been told not to take any holiday in the first two weeks of October, prompting even more speculation that the iPhone UK release date will be around this time.
