iPhone 5 Cases Already On Sale

Breaking an embargo on public dissemination, Chinese wholesalers on Alibaba are selling iPhone 5 cases.

iPhone accessories, mainly cases, are already for sale on Chinese site Alibaba.

There appear to be hundreds available on the site, such as this "Mobilephone accessory for iPhone 5 wallet stand leather case." As is typical for Alibaba, the market is wholesale with large minimum orders.

The image above clearly shows the iPhone 5 bottom with the new speaker grills, headphone jack and dock.

Hat tip to the Wall Street Journal's China Real Time blog.
