Spigen is already selling iPhone 5 accessories

Apple still has yet to admit that it will be coming out with the iPhone 5. So far, unconfirmed rumors claim that Apple will reveal the next version of its iOS smartphone on September 12th, with the actual launch coming on September 21st.

However, Apple's silence has not stopped at least one company from going ahead and accepting orders for its iPhone 5 accessories. Los Angeles-based Spigen has posted word on its website that it is "ready for iPhone 5" and is already selling its line of Steinheil Series iPhone 5 screen protectors for $13.99.

The company is also promoting its more advanced tempered glass-based Steinheil GLAS.t protector for iPhone 5, shown above, but it's not on sale until sometime in early September.

So does the site actually show photos of the iPhone 5 itself? Not exactly. The images that Spigen has posted on its pages are in reality based on a render created by Bryce Hammond. He made his design based on viewing leaked images of iPhone 5 parts that have made their way on the Internet.

So while Spigen may indeed be selling iPhone 5 accessories well ahead of the phone's launch, the images on their site may not be representative of what the final iPhone 5 may actually look like.

They also sold "iPhone 5" (later named iPhone 4S) accessories in stores before launch with a whole new design. Turns out the rumours were false and those cases were quickly removed.

Moral of the story, iphone accessories pre-launch mean nothing

Aslong as there's an anti-glare one. I love how the anti-glare looks and the fact that I can use my phone when others can't

I like how it says 4G LTE on the top left. Has that been confirmed yet or is it still a rumour?

if it's not LTE no one will buy it...

Considering the new iPad has LTE, I'd be very surprised if the new iPhone didn't.

Pump out the same old boring design. Unnecessarily replace dock connector forcing everyone to buy their accessories all over again. Revolutionary!

Just like every other os...

Agreed. But not everyone feels the need to cry about it like a school girl who dropped her icecream, even if she did steal it from someone else first.

This stuff supposedly warrants a court trial. I think it's trivial and good for a few cheap laughs.

And leaked images of beta iDevices!

So it will look just like iP4...but finally adopting widescreen. I'm making a prediction that that Apple has reached its pedigree. What goes up must fall down theory. All assuming this is legit.
