Slips of the tongue don't get any better than this, and in true Apple fashion it happened in a bar: Intake bar in Mansfield. New Rising Media gathered an exclusive from a trusted employee and reliable source who works within UK based Phones 4 U, who confirmed that BOTH an iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 will be released to all networks on October 21st. This we'd already predicted and has been slipped by Best Buy. However, extra details were given in relation to Orange UK: they will be taking pre-orders for said iPhones starting October 15th (explains the multiple speculations behing this story), and contracts will start from £25 with a subsidised price of £229. Contracts will also come with a free 'iPhone dock:' a very up-in-the-air term considering recent rumours of inductive charging possibilities.
