iphone 5 nano sim

We’ve more another interesting Apple iPhone 5 rumor, and some “proof” of what the nano SIM tray will look like.

This report comes from Nowhereelse.fr.  The images featured in the report are of what appears to be a nano SIM tray for the upcoming iPhone 5. Earlier this summer, there were initial reports that European phone carriers were stockpiling the new SIMs in what looked like anticipation for the next big Apple smartphone.

The new SIM tray isn’t the only item featured in the pictures. There’s another image that shows what looks as to be the new “home” button. The button looks smaller, which matches with previous leaks.

The pictures and reports are interesting, but until we hear it straight from the source (Apple), it would be wise to take everything with a grain of salt.

Apple is rumored to introduce the iPhone 5 on September 12, and to launch the phone in stores on September 21.

Apple is a big company, and they’re probably about to release their next big gadget later on in the fall. Thanks to the huge influx of rumors, it’s kind of easy to assume that their next phone will be big in terms of popularity. But if that’s the case, then why do most of the rumors essentially repeat themselves? Obviously, most of the rumors are really grasps at straws and they probably don’t have a lot of valuable information from Apple, which is really a good thing, as they would spoil the surprise. As for the rumored leaks with images, these might hold more truth to them, but that doesn’t really guarantee that they’re true.  We still have to wait and see what will happen next.

If you can’t wait for the iPhone 5, and you want to get rid of an older iPhone model, right now could be the ideal time to trade your old smartphone for cash towards the new phone. According to PCWorld blogger, Daniel Ionescu, many people are lining up to trade their older models, and are getting paid a little less than they initially paid up originally.  That sounds like a good deal, but before you start looking for a buyer, you might want to research your options first. A 16GB iPhone 4S is worth about $300 on eBay’s Instant Sale website, but NextWorth pays just $260 for the same model.  You could also take the charitable route and donate your old phone to a charity of your choice, or give it to a friend who needs a new phone.
