So I'm an Amazon marketplace seller and I got this email today. Greetings from Amazon, We anticipate the release of the following new products in the next week: Apple iPhone5 Apple iPad Mini Amazon will be creating ASINs for all versions of these new items ahead of time. Please refrain from creating new ones as they will be consolidated. Expect a follow up message with the ASINs for these products after the launch. Thank you, The Amazon Consumer Electronics Team Possible Amazon knows something? I'd venture to say yes since they probably have sources for reasons other than to report it on a blog.
