JOIN ME for a "LIVE" blog (BELOW) and ALL the news coming out of the event at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, CA. at 12:30pm est.. 9:30am pst. You can also follow me on Twitter @ubtalkin for the latest updates!

Tim Cook, Apple's new CEO, will attempt to fill Steve Jobs' shoes by unveiling Apple's latest gadget to the technology world.

But what will it be?

ALL indications and reports suggest it will be the iPhone 5.

It's been about 16 months since the last iPhone came out on AT&T, and nine months since it hit Verizon Wireless.

Some say that Apple will be unveiling not one but two iPhones, a future-leaning iPhone 5 with slimmer body, larger screen and better everything, and a new $99 variant of the iPhone 4, made with cheaper parts.

Sprint, the No. 3 U.S. wireless carrier, reports say that they will be getting the iphone as well. Also it has been reported that they will be offering "unlimited data" plans, something Verizon and AT&T have done away with.
Still other reports say that Sprint will get the iphone 5 "EXCLUSIVELY" and that Verizon and AT&T will get the iphone 4S

Sprint is making a multibillion-dollar gamble that access to the iPhone will be the ticket to a turnaround. Sprint has committed to buy at least 30.5 million iPhones, even though it would likely lose money on the deal until 2014.


Again come back tomorrow at 12:30pm est.....9:30am pst for LIVE coverage and the latest FACTS coming out of the event being held at the companies headquarters in Cupertino, CA.

Or maybe we should wait for the iphone 6?
