iPhone Pre-orders Start Today At Deutsche Telekom

The phone hasn’t been officially announced yet, but that won’t stop the German carrier Deutsche Telekom from trying to sell it.

Starting today existing Deutsche Telekom subscribers can start reserving the iPhone 5. Customers who reserve the device will receive a coupon that will, in theory, guarantee them one of the coveted phones after its announcement, and more importantly its release.

The iPhone 5 is widely thought to be coming during the month of October. Invitations for its expected announcement are rumored to be arriving this week.

What do you think about Deutsche Telekom taking orders for the iPhone before it has even been announced? Is it a smart ides? Or a little premature?
