Apple Japan’s online Apple Store has just gone live with the news that the company will launch the iPhone 4S on 14 October. It's a slip that is bound to get someone fired. 

The details, which are still very sketchy, show the Apple Japan Ginza store home page with a placeholder for the iPhone 4S and with it the date 10/14 at 8am.

The site appears to also reveal an updated iPod nano, although images are not yet live.

The description of the iPod nano includes references to a new user interface, improvements to fitness functions and a new clock face.

Pricing for the nano also appears to begin at 10,800 yen (£91.25 at current exchange rates), down from the current 13,800 yen.

The 14 October date also ties in with an anonymous tip that Pocket-lint has received, stating that there will be two phones - iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 - and that the 16GB iPhone 4 will be binned in favour of a 8GB version.

UPDATE: The rumours are correct, it is just the iPhone 4S
